I has better speakers! Pioneer 5.1 surround... 860 watts! I may come close to matching that after I upgrade this summer. Close, but not quite.

I'm actually training for web design in dreamweaver but thats not why i got so much power i also do videos in adobe premier and render stuff plus i use it as my Gaming/Home/Work/Server/Media Server Ultimate machine my entire house run on this computer and also for anyone who who is wondering Windows 7 is a LOT better than vista Official release date Oct 22 2009 Im a Microsoft partner so i got everything early I've been testing it for over a year and reporting things and they listened final revision I got was fantastic. I also looked into a SSD Upgrade I got a little over 400GB of programs and games so i figured buying 2 256GB SSD's would be a good idea but i really dont want to spend $1,200 to do it here are the drive i would get and put them in a RAID 0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820609395 I didn't look to see how much I can get them through work though might be able to scratch a few hundred off that.

I'm actually training for web design in dreamweaver...

Do yourself a favor...DreamWeaver is handy for putting stuff together quickly, but go through the trouble of actually learning [X]HTML and CSS. There are things that you can do by hand that you just can't do easily in a GUI (ask Rick and everyone who mentions that the PdN forms don't load in visual studio).

If you've just started training for web design, then while you learn, remember that not everyone has the same screen as you, or even working eyes. Find out about accessibility (http://fae.cita.uiuc.edu/) and validation (http://validator.w3.org), and why they matter. Learn what tables are for (displaying tabular data in rows and columns), and what they're *not* for (slicing a page up into boxes to do layout). Learn about caching, CSS, and how bandwidth for a page/app/site are affected by proper use of each...

Just my 2 cents...

That's fairly similar to what mine is going to be.

Currently I have a Phenom 9550 (runs a 2.2 ghz, but I OC'ed it to 2.6, in desperation), 4 gig's of DDR2, some Biostar mobo (performance was mediocre), a Radeon 4850 512mb, and several hard drives.

I'm going to upgrade this summer to either a Phenom II 940 or 945, 6ish gigs of ram, another 4850 (1 gig, hopefully), and a Gigabyte motherboard.

Thealrakes V9 Case js cool but the interior is cheap (at least the last one I worked in was) I recomend anything high end antec or even a coolermaster scout of haf series they look about the same as the V9 but a lot higher quality

Are you kidding me? My setup is like 5 times better than that!!! :D

Just kidding. I just have my handy laptop and that's it. It's all I really need though. Everyone has their own personal setup for their wants and needs. :)
