    not too bad...

    sempron 2400+ scoket A
    geforce fx5200 graphics

    my only issue is with the onboard sound (i'm using an asrock k7vt4a pro and it doesn't work. any help would be appreciated).

    apart from that it runs suse nicely. and it was a steal at 300 just a couple of weeks ago.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    Well this is what I have.

    Case: Thermaltake Shark VA7000BWA
    PSU: Thermaltake PurePower 560W

    Chaintech 7NJS Ultra
    AMD Athlon XP 3000+
    1GB of PC2700 (333)
    Nvidia 6600GT (I love the dual DVI)
    2x PATA Maxtor 80GB
    2x SATA WD 160GB (RAID 0)
    3ware 8506-8 Kit PCI SATA Card
    2x SATA WD 160GB (RAID 1)
    INTEL 10/100/1000Mbps PCI Dual Port Server
    Extra USB 2.0 Card (5 Port)
    Soundblaster Aud. Plat.
    DVD-ROM (bla..)
    CD-RW (bla..)

    I would rate it good but the Mobo, processor, RAM, DVD-ROM, and the CD-RW all need to be upgraded. Oh, and befor you ask, yes even w/wire ties the inside of my case looks like a wire house. *sigh* With all those extra PCI cards I don't know mobo to upgrade to. And YES! I use them all. I need every port, every option, every last unit my PSU puts out.. lol
