    ~~~ People, not too worried but can you try to keep image sizes at or below 1024*768 for easier readability for those of us with 720p or higher screens? Horizontal scrollbars are the work of the Devil!!~~~

    In the same manner of Know your nerds, anyone posting here without pics of their builds gets banned. And no chats or other OT posts. If you want a discussion, open another thread or PM.

    This is the one and only warning you all get.

    Be prepared for the messiest case you've ever seen. Keep saying I'll clean it up but I might as well wait now till I put in the new board and card in a few weeks. I used to have another build that I sold to Christophicus a few months ago and I really wish I'd kept the modular hyper psu from that. It's the third picture. The second one is my other 'powerhouse' - 500mhz, 384mb ram and Radeon 9200. Use it for playing divx/xvid, emulators and older games (currently playing Kingpin and Mortyr) on a projector. Very fond of it. :D

    Slight update. New monitor - still can't believe it only cost 260 euro. Don't think I've much more upgrading planned until September now, fairly happy with it for once.

    extreme? whats extreme? :p

    the 42u was pretty cheap - not much more than my new case. about 500eur including 2 switches, lots of cables, kvm switch, ups and other stuff; it was worth it alone for the ups. I use it to both house my two computers (desktop/server) and my podcasting gear - which is what actually takes up most of it (patch bay, mixer, firewire console, tube composer). I'd take a pic of it now if i could, but my camera is busted.
