Nah, it's more than fast enough for me as it is =)

Craig's just bought a beast-and-a-half premade from OcUK though. Think it's their "Ultima" AMD Athlon 64 3700 Dual DDR System one. Pretty good and quieter than mine :o(

I was going to describe mine, but realised that I really don't care that much anymore.

It does run IE via Wine on Linux rather well, though (posting this with it).

Oh and games work on the "fast" setting.

It was definitely more fun putting it together myself, though.

Yeah I know what you mean, I mean computers are pretty much quick enough to do anything you need in the blink of an eye. This one's just as quick as my P4 1.8GHz, apart from at games.

Yeah, I do love building them myself =)
