As I said before I need to build my Son a rig. So I'll postpone my exotic coolig plans and build the following:
- P4P800 DLX.
-P4 2.6 @ 800MHz.
-Swiftech MCX-4000B.
(As for RAM I'm thinking Corsair)
I'll put this in my current case w/the 550Watt TC PSU. He'll get the one in my sig with a windowed case with some neon and a 430 watt true PSU. His B-day is mid August so I have plenty time.
Hows it look so far? I'm open to suggestions here.:D

well, the absolute best, and of course most expensive, is the Radeon 9800 Pro 256MB

the next step down is the Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB

the next step down is the Radeon 9700 Pro 128MB (this one can be had at excellent prices now and is still very powerfull)

Not yet. He's getting the AMD rig I'm using now and I'm gonna ride the Intel for a while. I need to see how the other half is living.:D I just can't resist the OCs people are getting on these set ups.;)
