3 x64 systems? Sweet mercy. Right now it'* a Xp 2800+, 1 gig PC2700 ValueRam, 1x 80 GB, 1x 200 GB (on the way), dual layer dvd burner, 9600XT 256mb, Enermax 470W PSU. I built it on a real tight budget and just have been upgrading components as I go. Started with mx440, 1 HD, 1 stick of 512, shady PSU, and a 15" CRT. It runs fine for what I do, I'm going micro-ATX within the next month and adding/upgrading a few parts since I got some ash to play with. Getting a nice lappy this summer, no need to do an overhaul on this.

I haven't upgraded my junk in a long time. I'm due. I'm running an Athlon XP1700 OC'ed to a 2000... 1GB Ram, a couple 80GB ATA drives in a RAID-0. Radeon 8500 64MB card. It works, for now.
