Damn! Everyone just win the lottery or something?

Leadtek do good video cards (or so I've heard) plus their fans are the quietest.

Seagate Barracuda's great as long as you're not doing any uncompressed non-linear video editing, otherwise I'd go for a Western Digital with the 8Mb Cache. Seagate hard drives are nice and quiet too.

If you're even considering doing any serious CD burning then get a Plextor or LG writer.

I still have doubts about VIA chipset motherboards.

Talking

looks like this configuration seem to work well with a quadro 2 mxr video card. gaming cards seem to work good but not at the MAX in OpenGL.

Anyway, if you are in the burning hole of money, theres no choice to get a Leadtek Cards. they were as good as and speeding bullets. :
