    Looks good... however the weak links are 512 MB of RAM... should have done 1 Gig for that system, and XP Home edition.

    Why do you need a Gigabit NIC at your house???
    Very cool though... deffinite braggin rights.

    Very nice... yea.. $400 for another 512 is kind of steep.

    Nice!! I'm surprised, though, with the specs on the rest of the system, the board only supports 1.5gb ram?

    Why did you choose raid 0?
