so im getting the board in a few weeks, about 3 or 4. Then to get the chips, should be about 8 weeks for them. the memory will take about 6 weeks and the hard drives about 6 weeks too. Im currently limited in my income, and only saving about €50 or €65 a week. this is why its taking the amount of time. I would also like to get me a new graphics card, mainly cause the old one is quite slow and also its staying in the current machine i have. ill keep the current machine as a Win2k server or a win2k3 server. So getting the new card, ill be looking at dual headed. im thinking of getting 2 17″ monitors like the one on my desk at the moment, and ill have 3 in total. one on the server and 2 on my workstation. now all i need is a bigger desk!
