    Well, it's more like an upgraded from my previous one, new mobo, new cpu.

    Now running
    Abit IS7 mother board
    P4 2.4c cpu w/ 800mhz fsb
    ati radeon 9700 pro
    ram is in the mail (kingston hyper-x pc3700) so for now i'm just running 512mb kingston pc2100

    :wiggle:

    i was on a p4 2.26ghz 533fsb w/ the abit bd7-II mother board. Not a crazy upgrade but definitly noticable. Can't wait for the ram to come so i can bump her up to 2.8+

    I'm running the same setup except on a gigabyte board. How much ram you putting in it? I'm only running a small overclock now till the fall when my appartment cools down enough, but I'm still @ 2.7.

    Datacomguy: the other system still kicks ass. I took out my 9700 pro of course but in return i put in a 9600 so it's still actually a pretty high end system. I might throw it in a small case and use it to take to friends houses for games? I could probably sell it for some high amount to an idiot here in the bay area? dunno, haven't thought about it.

    Leb_crx: I was just talking to a friend about how spoiled we are with computers. He works at AMD, and i know lotsa friends that work for other computer hardware and software companies....I get the sweetest deals so it makes it easyer for me

    Dan: 512mb kingston hyper-x pc3700. I'm contemplating bumping it to 1gb if i sell one of my other systems though. What fan/heatsink are you running? Stock voltage? 3ghz one just an upgraded fan is really easy to do nowadays with this cpu. Stable to.

    I'm running some startech hsf that I got at work. It's a copper base with some plain 60mm fan on it. Still at stock voltage too.
