I sold my 8800gtx and was deciding either on the 8800gts or 8600gts, and i read the 8600gts werent so good performer. It's kind of disapointing for the lower market from both Nvidia and ATI. Atleast it has some hd video technology.

Intel Quad Q6600 2.4ghz
2x1gb Patriot PC6400 5-5-4-9
Asus P5B-Deluxe/Wifi
2xRaid1 Western Digital
Geforce 8800GTS 320mb
MSI Turbostream 600w

Initially I wanted to buy the Xeon X3210 2.1ghz for cheaper then overclocked, but I got the Q6600 at a shop, it gave me some OS incompatibility problems, but I have since solved it with a 64bit version and some Microsoft updates. Also found out it's not the "G0" stepping. Not sure if the server cpu would have been better and how much better with the G0 version.

The Patriot rams I bought for $300 less than a year ago, and now they go for less than $100, I felt so bad. Now the new DDR3 rams are way expensive, I should wait for them to go from $400 to $100 before upgrading anything.

About half of that stuff came out well after 2003, is there a flux capacitor in there too?

I put the main parts of my machine together in 2003 and it was pretty darn nippy then.

Athlon XP 2800+
Abit AN7
1.5 Gigs of PC3200@2700 (512 meg originally)
Raptor 74 gig
Maxtor 80gig (2 storage drives of about 500gigs together added since)

Audigy 2 ZS (Previously Live! 1024)
Winfast PVR2000
Hercules Prophetview 920Pro DVI & 920Pro VGA

I don't really game anymore. Quiet running volumes > power these days.

Assumed you upgraded a lot of your components ?

Mine's in my sig. It still runs Rainbow Six Vegas at 1280 * 780, but that seems to be the limit. Source engine highest specs incl. all AA/AS, HDR effects, lowest was 40 fps, usually hovering around 60 fps. I mostly play BF 2142 and Q4 anyway, both of which runs superbly on my UXGA 1900*1200 screen.
