There is no fee for this professional style of worksmanship!

Duct tape AND crazy glue - bit of overkill there, Dennis, if you don't mind me saying so.

If you're not careful, you'll be headhunted by UPS to give advice on their packaging methods.

Called Mike( HopalongX) for help as I am stuck...Glue dries to fast and now I am part of WHS new computer build. Now UPS won't take me in the delivery as I don't fit their shipping requirements.

Wolfgang, this is a good rig. One of my old workmates has the one with FX-8150 and 1TB drive. Works and serves as family network server. Please notice, it's a geek family, they have at least 7 or 8 PC's on network. It's running 2008R2, never had problems, uptime ATM over 4 months (not counting necessary update reboots).

My opinion: go for it, it's worth every cent!

You guys are too funny. But I appreciate the offers for assembling a box. I actually have friends at my computer club that can see better than me and could put something together for me. I considered that when I saw a few nice packages on Newegg and TigerDirect. But then I thought it was too much trouble.

I did, however, already order a Crucial M4 SSD from Newegg for the upcoming new box. They had an instant rebate and a promo code so it costs only $104 - i could not resist.

I now found an option at Dell. I am not really a big Dell friend because I have a Dell box in Germany and I was not pleased to find that they had bolted the 2 HDDs to the chassis - no bays. But this XPS8300 looks pretty good and is only $800 with my 2 upgrades (2 USB3 ports and a Radeon graphics card). And the guy at Dell was a bit swifter. He found out that the mobo has a Sata III port (I hope he is right). I asked him to confirm that in an email.

PS: thanks Kari for the advice. But without a Sata III port I am not sure.

The guy from Dell came back with a chart that shows the mobo connectors. He highlighted a "Sata 3" port. But I am not sure whether that is really a Sata 3 or just the third port on the board because there is also a Sata 0, 1, 2. What do you guys think.

Sata 0, 1, 2, 3 just port numbering on that chart.
It could be anything.

I have 0-6. One of them is the on board e-Sata.

So that is useless for Gbs purposes.
Let me see if I can dig some info up for you. I'm good on the HP sight. Never took on Dell yet.

Scroll down to System Board Components.

11 and 13 on mobo layout are 6Gbs.

15 and 17 on mobo layout are 3Gbs.

You are quite welcome.

I love digging out info on HP. Dell is even easier. Well for me anyway.

Anytime my friend.
Mike
