Nice little rig dude :P

Some pretty old school tech there, but thats not a bad thing

How well does 7 run on a single-core Celeron by the way?

It's surprisingly good. Well, it's the fastest computer I've ever had, so I don't know fast an i7 with TB of RAM would compare , but it runs pretty smoothly. However, given that it is a Celeron, the CPU usage is almost always really high, yet my laptop with a 2.0GHz AMD 'ClawHammer' can go to 1%. Not the best processor on the planet, but it helps play the sims 2 fine and runs XBMX quickly.

Interesting rig... I like the total ebay shopping list. Good job!

Here's where I'm a bit fuzzy, I noticed there are a lot of pics of different rigs and sometimes I noticed only one monitor but the rig has two or even three graphic cards in them... Why two cards and one monitor? Just wondering. Cheers!

Lol... Sounds almost like my build, I get most things from eBay (newer CPU and GPU currently in transit from USA). Only thing I bought locally was my case and PSU.

Multiple graphics cards would generally either be Nvidia SLI (Scalable Link Interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) or ATI CrossFire (AMD CrossFire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Generally speaking, it's to give your PC a performance boost in the graphics-based department.

The basic idea is that the graphics processing is shared between multiple cards... Mostly for gaming rigs and high-end server setups (they sometimes use GPU power to add to the processing power of the server CPU). A good example in games is the ability to have alternate frames rendered by alternating GPUs; so frames 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, ect by GPU 1 and frames 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, etc by GPU 2.

Wow.... No ways. That's about 190 degrees celsius! Nearly double the boiling point of water.. Is that one of the GT's you're currently running??
