New Gaming Machine Part 2

I just finished putting together my new gaming rig. I have to say it was one of the least painful builds that I’ve done in a long time. Everything just seemed to fit right where it needed to go. The only problem I ran into was Windows setup not recognizing my USB floppy when I need the SATA drivers. So I just robbed a floppy out of another machine.

I decided against going with the Abit board in favor of a Foxconn board and I have to say I’m very pleased. I was a little concerned about the memory voltage not being high enough by default. I read a couple reviews stating that the Abit board didn’t work with 1.9V memory which is what I had already ordered, so I found the Foxconn board on sale at Newegg.

The one thing I do know is this thing is fast. Windows was installed and up and running in 10 minutes. Keep in mind that this was a full install, with formatting a 150 GB drive, of XP SP2b.
