After 5 years it is time to build a New Box. My old 1500P4 with 4 gigs of ram and 128 meg Gforce 4 just could could not make the grade when you start editing videos. So I am about to build a new one. I thought some of you would find it interesting what a top of the line....Machine.....looks like.

So here goes....

If anyone owns me money....now is a GOOD time to pay up! LOL!

Add them-there numbers up! OUCH!

This makes for a great machine with a lot of upgradeablity for years to come. It will take the new quad processors, 8 gigs of ram and 2 of those vid cards in SLI without blinking. That is the key IMHO to building a really good machine is making sure you can upgrade it later without having to build another one from scratch.

Many Thanks go to Joe (Rough and Ready) for helping me hash out the differnet goodies. There is about 20 hours of research that went into this build. Joe also offered to build it for me. I do not build many but I am sure I will be RIGHT in the middle of it when it happens.
