Heh, yea sounds like you love the new stuff too , and building systems. I always love to built it myself because I enjoy it, and theres few that can build what i want for me, for the right price . The radeon 9700 pro is a awesome card though, im having NO problems with it and other than one thing, you need to run a sound card on the Motherboard, and not the onboard one, because thats what causes the vga to screw up! That is no joke either, I put on my old sound card (even worse than the onboard one) and it solved TONS of problems. I would say for you to go with that card, or supposively this new one by nvidia is way better than the radeon 9700 pro .

One question though, If i bought a refrigerated case, and ran the generator (or w/e makes all the noise) at a external spot, like in the walls where it would be more quiet.. and then if I ran a state of the art AMD CPU, could i overclock it to the degree of a pentium? Oh yea, but I dont even know if the bios will let you do this on a Athalon motherboard.. seeing i have never owned one .

new pentium 4's are now hyperthreading (just like risc), they also utilise rambus rddram 566mhz bandwidth (amd dont and cannot cos intel has the patent). P4's use the i845e chipset AMds dont (agp8x, 566mhz mem bus and so on

What a response! ! ! Just one query. I thought the graphics card only made difference to the render speeds if you hardware render?

Oh, and sorry for the time delay. I only get to use the net at work and even then only at lunch. I'm not going online at home until a can get broadband. It's a waste of time otherwise.

Im jealous of u guys. Im running on a AMD Athlon 1 Ghz 640 DDR ram with a 64mb Geforce2 GTS(w/ TV out ;p) and a 60 GB HDD w/ 1.64 GB left on it. I really need another HDD but dont have the money. My render times arent that bad, but it cant handle too many polys.

I would like to make my own like dual processor. That would be great. Im looking forward to the Hammer. I would like to get that more then anything. But are they gonna start that at 800MHz?
