<.< that case all I could afford at the time. If I had a choice, I would have gotten an Antec 900 Also, Ubuntu boots in about 28s <.< And to my desktop in about 5s. Windows boots in about 45s and is to my desktop in about 15s.

And does that graphics card work ok with Linux ? It's certainly a good one, but the ATI drivers on Linux ...

Sweet rig.
Though overclocking your CPU like that will probably reduce its lifespan...

Yes, it works quite well actually. The newest drivers from ATI work really well Though the tearing in games and stuff is not gone, it is better. Also, Compiz runs like it is a god. There is no lag on anything. <.<


Also, I know Overclocking my CPU will reduce its lifespan, but if you keep it below the "Intel Recommend Maximum Voltage" it will be fine for several years (or so they say). I have had it running at 3.8GHz (400*9.5) @ 1.45v but they heat was insane. 76C after 5 runs with Intel Burn Test! D: But my Ultra Kaze fixed that >.> I get 71C now.

Pretty cool desktop...

If I had the money, I would buy one of these

A Nvidia Tesla Personal Super Computer for under $10K

Um because that is what my Step-Dad gave me and I do not like mucking with 64-bit since I have had problems before (already messed with Ubuntu 64-bit and it was a pain).
