    Core 2 Duo X6800 Xtreme (Engineering Sample)
    2 GB OCZ Gold RAM
    7900 GTX
    Intel 965 Board (engineering sample)
    74 Gb Raptor
    400GB WD Storage Drive
    Samsung 18X DVD/RW
    7/1 Floppy/Card Reader
    Lian Li PC60B

    The above cost was less than 200 bucks, leaving my old job a lot of the manufacturers hooked me up as a going away gift. You can probably figure out which ones I got the hook on.

    Samsung 940aw
    This cost more than my computer, but I love it:hs:

    I must admit this is the fastest computer I've built in a long time, screams:bowdown:

    Keep in mind that on the engineering sample stuff, if you have any problem, or if a part fails, you are screwed. Intel does not provide a warranty on engineering sample components.

    Yes of course, like I said I was in the industry for years:o
    But would you refuse a $900.00 or so processor for free because of it:dunno:

    My company is an Intel Premier Partner, and when new stuff comes out, I usually get 5 or so motherboards and a tray full of CPUs
