You sir.. have to much money..
Anyhow, looks nice. Not sure about the QuadCore though. Check how much accesspoints it has to the MainBoard.
Since if it has only one you better buy a DualCore.

Also, Change Hard Drive 1 500 GB SATA HDD UDMA 300 7200 16MB to 2x 250GB of WD or something...

Cheers,

The processor is compatible :lol: (pretty sure)

Why do you think I should have 2 250's instead of a 500. I guess I should have noted that I also have a 130 7200 16MB that I am only going to load the OS and programmes onto. I also have an external 500 Freecom, but obviously that isn't the best for heavy use.

Cheers.

A Compatable Processor is not the problem. The problem is that a lot of Brands Slap Stickers on there Products to fool you.
You might have 4 Cores or what the he you can have 10000 Cores.. But it doesnt matter if you have also so many lines go in your Core and out to your MainBoard.

And about the 2 250s. I have to say: Its more Reliable and it increases speed Speed.


Oh, have you thought about SSDs? Sinec you have Enough money you can add maybe 250GB in SSD ;)

heh,

You may have noticed I have toned down some of the parts but I need to save for a holiday next year (Ibiza lol :( ) I am also taking your advice and have just got a 250 HDD right now with plans for a SSD next month.
