May, huh. A long time ago. Well, yesterday I arranged for the bulk of a new system to be purchased. I'm now just a couple of drives (the computer kind) away from a nice new system.
Cooler Master 371 case with a Thermaltake TR2 500W power supply to start with. The motherboard is a Gigabyte A75M-S2V (built to last, with USB 2.0 & 3.0 ports), 2x4GB (8GB total) Patriot DDR3 1600 memory, and an AMD A83870K Quad Core APU w/Radeon HD6550D.
Part 2 is the drives, and if I can pull off the cost, the hard drive will be a 3TB Seagate Barracuda, with a cheap multi-format Samsung DVD-X. I'll toss in a Mushkin 60GB Chronos SSD if I get incredibly flexible on costs.
I have a friend who works at Microsoft, so Win7Pro is on hand, cheaply.
