Heh, you just listed off an almost exact match to what I am currently building. Gratz on getting a P67 Sandybridge board during the recall cluster-fuck. I've set my homepage to the mobo I want on NewEgg so I know when it gets back in stock.

The HAF-X case is a monster. If I were not a big, strong dude, I might be upset at how much it weighs.

I think there was a 2 month period before the bug was apparent so looaads of people got their rigs build before it was even known. (myself included). But in all honesty the "bug" was something of a hype bomb. Well known review sites tried to make everything look horrible during the first 2 days where it was found out and announced by intel. Personally it got me upset because I had just finished my rig, and had given a lot of people reckomendations about the 25-2600k series processors and mobos.

Once intel released their 2nd statement speaking of 5-15% reduction in bandwidth speeds on the Sata controller people were like "Oh thats all?". Personally, I know that a month down the road from now, I'll drop by OC.UK give them in my UD7 and get another one. Gives me a chance to work on cable management again :)

Although if memory serves it took a good 15-20 days till online shops cleared their stock of SB series motherboard... I know the egg and OC.UK etc removed them instantly, but other sites kept them around for longer...

In anyway, grats on your new rig (once you get it all going) and good choice on the HAF-X too!

Since someone else in my household is handling large-scale mass media storage, I could care less about the SATA II controllers (the SATA III connections are unaffected) possibly going bad. Sadly, I missed my 2-3 hour window on mobo I wanted on the Egg and am unwilling to by/pre-order from one of the random ultra-sketchy online dealers or pay the 20% sales tax on oc.uk.

iMac:

2GB RAM
ATi X1600
250GB HDD

I am trying to make this last 7 years before buying a new one. I can't even tank Maloriak in P2 because the graphic effects from Acid Nova and Absolute Zero explosions make my game pause for a few seconds so I just tank him in P1. Other than that is performs okay.

CPU: Intel Pentium 4 (3.00GHz)
MoBo: IC7-MAX3 (Intel i875P-ICH5)
Mem: 4 x 512MB DDR
SPD: PC3200 (200MHz)
Video Card: RADEON x850 (256MB)
HDD: I don't remember the sizes, but there are 2 (one is at least a 500GB.)

This is according to CPU-Z (I bought a custom built PC from a friend for $100 after it was already a couple years old, so I have no idea what the case or PSU is.)

Based on what I have listed though... do you guys think it would be worth it to try and upgrade part of this PC or just start from scratch to build a new one? I'm pretty new to building computers (I've fiddled here and there, but never built one from scratch) so if you guys think that's the better way to go, I'll probably be in here quite a bit to make sure I'm on the right track :).
