I have decided to try my best to hold off on any more baubles until I can afford an AMD dual core unit with screwless case and acrylic side pane, a hulking power unit,  and a front-bay mounted Thermaltake full digital functions readout.   8)

If that were mine, I would need to add more support under my den floor.  I definitely would not classify that unit as bashful, intimidating, yes, bad--->very!   8)

Thank you both :)

I have 2 more cc's to go into the case and am awaiting a lighting controller for the other set of 12" cathodes for the inside (there bright green :) )

Will take more pics later tonight, maybe show you the drive arrangement and where the two raptors will sit.

Wow, that is one seriously good looking setup!  Congratulations on that build.  I love your use of neons, the effect at the front is spectacular.  I've long thought the inclusions of neons is great but seeing them somewhere other than just inside is great.  Once you get the ones on the inside done I'm thinking you might want to go buy some nice new sunglasses!  ;D

You need to update your signature. I am thinking about an AMD 4400 dual core system. Not sure yet.

I am thinking about making our XP 2500 system a linux system running IPCOP, making my AMD64 3500+ system our main system and then going dual core for my photoshop digital imaging system.

Nice Bling computer  :) . ON a personal note i have downgraded substantially to a lowly A64 3200+ @ 2.5 Ghz with an X800XL (it was my third PC). I sold out everything i had (for a profit of course). I'll upgrade again when AM2-3 and Conroe/DX 10 compliant cards are out.
