    My Next Build.

    CPU=Core 2 Q6600 Motherboard=Undecided leaning towards DS3L (DS3R if I do RAID) RAM=PC26400 4GB 2nd harddrvie=160-200gb (might RAID with 1st hdd) More of a wishlist than anything. once i get the go ahead AMD might have their quad's out (desktop ones) and we'll see what happens.
