    @bondbill2k2 - Your rig looks new? Either that or you live in a dust free environment or have a bad case of OCD when it comes to keeping your base unit clean...

    No photos to hand:

    MSI 785G AM2+ motherboard
    AMD Athlon X2 4200+
    2GB of OCZ DDR2 800
    ATI 4850 1GB
    All in an Antec Sonata II, viewed on a Samsung 20" TFT. Coping well on Windows 7, but deperately needs a processor upgrade!

    I have a 2008 Mac Pro with 18gb of RAM, waiting on my SSD Order for a corsair force 3 from scan and I have currently an nvidia 8800GT, not enough for the ATI 5870, would be nice at some point to get one but for the time being I will be ordering more 2tb + hard drives for storage etc so the graphics card can wait.

    The nvidia copes with Doom 3 and the likes which is good enough for me
