    Custom Build Desktop (Built 2009)
    Mobo: MSI P55-GD80
    CPU: Core i5 750 @ 2.67GHz
    RAM: 8GB (4x2GB)
    GFX Card (Upgraded Dec 2011): SAPPHIRE Radeon 6790
    PSU: CORSAIR HX850 850W
    Monitors: Dual Asus 24"
    Hard Drives: 4x500GB WD Blue WD5000AAKX - Configured in RAID0 array
    Case: Antec 900
    OS: Dual Boot (x64) - Win7 Ultimate for gaming & Fedora for everything else

    I've been adding parts to this computer almost every year. Originally, I had a Radeon 4890 which was replaced a little under 2 years ago, had 4GB of RAM which was expanded, I used my 46" TV as a monitor and then later on replaced it with 24" on a desk, then got another 24"

    Next update I'm thinking will probably be xmas time or early in the new year, I will replace the video card, probably break from ATI and go nVIDIA, they seem to be doing good things and ATI has failed to provide good drivers for Linux.
