Hello Everyone:

Finally my system is done! Why did it took so long for motherboard manufacture to release Nforce4 ultra chipset!!!! I Just can't wait any more so went ahead for the Asus SLI Deluxe. Anyway, this system rocks! The nforce4 internal firewall really works, it blocks quite a few malicious attack while I install OS online. If you are a serious gamer, you will know how crucial it is to not have lag during tournament, now couple with the new Razer Diamondback, exactmat, and the zboard, I get to frag with insane accuracy and uber low ping!

At idle my cpu temperatue is about 25 while system about 35, needless to say I am very happy with my AMD winchester, 2 thumbs up to AMD for coming out with 64bit ready cpu while perform just as fast and not as hot as P4. This system can be used for overclocking as well as upgrading to AMD64 4000 in the future. Although not dead silent, it is very very quite. The loudest thing is actually my DVD-RW drive.

This system is everything that I desire; it has the looks, performance, and the quiteness. Anyway, I highly recommand this setup if you got the cash (about 2000) and the time to build your own rig.

haha i don't really need SLI, i got the ASUS SLI cause can't wait any more. SLI is way too costly, 2 6600gt is about 6800gt and 2 6800gt cost a ton, just not cost effective IMO.
