    Water coolin' shouldn't be necessary but what have screwed up to be gettin' such a low score? (my ****ty 2.4B @ 2.7GHz w/ GF4 Ti4200 on single DDR memory channel scores 12K+) :?:

    I have no idea why im getting suck low scores. I dont really lag in games like bf1942 and AA....well i kind of do. And i was looking at other people that have about the same specs as me and there scoring about 18,000. And most of my parts are from a 2 yr old copmputer like my hd processor RAM and cd-rom.

    tah gAmer: Why not post your system specs so that we can see where your problem lays, you never know it could save you wasting $7K.

    what type of Hard drives ar those? normal ATA 133?

    if it isent, i would get 2 36gb raptor 10,000 rpm HD in raid 1 config. and for the system A, if the ram is lower than pc3200, i would upgrade to 1 gb of pc3500 ram. And also change the 1.8 to a 2.4c or 2.6c if u want.

    for system B. i would also upgrade the HD to 2x36gb raptor if the old Hd is a normal ATA.

    what is ur CPU fan? and case fans?

    but both of ur system ar already Really good, i see no point of upgrading yet. I would put that 7000 buz to other use, if u ar really rich and think 7000 buz is nothing, then donate the 7000 dollars to like red cross or other assocations.

    Not everyone wants / needs the speed that the Raptors can give, let alone in a RAID array. You'd be better off getting a normal 7200rpm drive, instead of wasting money on Raptors. And would a little punctuation in a post go astray?

    Nice little system there. Just a couple personal comments:

    - I'd go for a Radeon 9800 XT video card, but that's a totally personal choice.
    - Getting both a DVD-ROM and DVD-RW drive is probably a bit redundant. What most people do is get a DVD-RW and a CD-RW drive, if you wish to have 2 drives.
    - Forget Norton. Download AVG for free. Most people around here will say it does a better job anyway.
    - Lite-On DVD burner - make sure you get the LDW-411S, not the 410S, as the 411S supports both DVD+R and DVD-R media.
