Sorry to hear your rig passed away, but at least the rig had a final tribute forever immortalized in this the "show us your Riga-mortis [2] thread. Now you have a good excuse to save and plan a new build.

yeah, it is a pity
I'd only just managed to get it working two months ago (after it being rather unstable for a year) and had just re-gained my faith in my skills, then to have them shattered by it. From what it would appear, the motherboard is shorted :/
I've tried a different PSU and still just fans, so i'll try a different cpu in it tommorrow just in case, but it doesn't look hopefull. I don't see how it could just die like that!
Unfortunately it will probably take me a long time to save up for a new one, but I'm going to go 'all out' and not buy a single piece of second hand stuff. Completely afresh. New case, everything. Hopefully it'll last a little longer

biggles1000,
I'm sorry to hear of the restored systems fate, but look at it this way, you get the joy of the new system plan, purchase and execute/build. I for one think that this could be one of the major attractions to building ones own system from the case up. For any input and help please just ask as you are amongst friends that understand !

yeah, that's true. I guess with the dead build it was inevitable it would go wrong at some point. I wanted to keep it 'classic' to its old beige case, so I just picked and chose cheap bits for that. However, many problems then arose such as the case being too small for any other PSU, the HDD sounding like it would die and eventually it all dying.
So yeah, hopefully I will feel compelled to build one, as you said, from the case up.
Thanks for the reassurance linnemeyerhere and IownAmoneyPit, it has stopped me feeling that I wouldn't be capable of creating it
(to be honest, the mobo seemed to be bad when i built it - looks like it finally caught up )

i haven't even begun to fully realise my ruined data on the HDD :/
all my media stuff is on an external drive, so i can use that with my old laptop for the time being. thank goodness there's no critical data on it since it was a fairly new install

None! I actually am this clean haha. I added my keyboard tray back to the desk so I could lower my chair, now the monitors are at tolerable heights.. It's still not perfect though.

yeah, it'll take me a while to get enough money to build my dream machine, but this time I am truly going to build my 'dream machine'.
I appreciate all the positivity from you guys making the best of a bad situation - I've had the computer since 2001 (but changed the internal parts apart from the dvd drive a year ago), so I was attached to it but your encouragement has helped me to get over it
As a 'farewell' to it, I plan on mounting it to the wall, maybe with out the side panel or make a transparent one... transparent with the 'Tiny' logo embossed could look really nice...

Here is mine - It is your Basic Computer

Very Cluttered Desk but at least I know where everything is

I am going to also be adding more RAM and a Graphics card in it

wow... those are some pretty impressive performance scores! well, at least in my books they are. don't you think it's a bit silly though that MS pick the lowest score as your result rather than an average? My 6 year old laptop gets a 1.0 (the lowest possible ) due to gaming graphics, yet processor gets a 3.9, RAM gets a 2.9, graphics gets a 1.9 (despite not being able to run aero) and hard drive gets a 3.7.
I guess it could 'inspire' people to want to improve their final score and go and buy some more parts for their computer, which I guess does benefit the user's experience, but probably not their wallet.
Was the cluttered sarcasm?
also, nice HTC phone

lol Thanks Thanks

It a bit messy on the Window ledge around the monitor -Who knew that I have OCD

I agree with you about WEI - It would be cool to have both Average and Lowest Score

EDIT: Plus I cannot get anymore than 5.9 for Disk Transfer Rate unless I have a SSD
