Remember that "project" I told you about? Now that I've got some sort of income, I'm going to start planning for it, you should help me out with it!
I'll be there! Give me a call!

Selling the Boreas because I "upgraded" to phase.

Ok, small update:

Don't know how many of you are aware, but my beautiful DFI mobo finally died on me. I don't know why or how, all I know is that technology moves too fast for me to wait 8 weeks for an RMA. Thus, i've decided to re-jig my rig and do something with it that my budget will allow. As of this moment, most, if not all of my computer gear featured in this thread is for sale or for trade.

I'll be back...

yeah I'm planning a complete re-working of the hardware to something more practical to what I use my computer for.

So far I'm planning on throwing in an amd x2 550 BE (because I don't like intel cpu's, don't ask me why. I just don't) and pairing it with a single gpu (in this case, an 8800 gtx OC). All in my acrylic case (which I'm working on painting), paired with a matx mobo that is to be decided and I've already purchased 8 gigs of ddr3 and an ht omega striker 7.1 sound card.

Don't worry, the window will be un-painted. Main reason why I decided to paint is so that it was easier to hide the cables when the case isn't completely see through. I'm too cheap to buy a new case or a modular psu.
