Went from PC, to Mac, back to PC (this one). I spent more money than I should have on this, but, I don't really care.

I went hi-end on every component of this, I wanted Photoshop to load in less than a second (which it does, including every other program -- including games).

VIEWSONIC 17.0" VE700 1280X1024 TFT LCD (METALLIC SILVER/BLACK)

Motherboard, CPU & Ram bundle

Good work!

I have a P4 1.8A which I sometimes overclock to 2.4GHz. 512Mb Samsung DDR Ram using dual-channel. Creative FX5200.

Photoshop takes a few seconds to load...

All completely silent though :) Most of my fans (all Panaflo L1A and Papst) run at 5 or 7v.

Photoshop takes a minute to load of mine :(

Whose feet are on it, and why are you killing someone in the last photo, isn't that just providing evidence :p

Self defence, the guy was clearly a masked intruder... :rolleyes:

Very nice :)

Thinking of getting a new computer soon just to play games on. Think I'll get one of those glowing boxes after seeing that :)
