    Over the next few days while I wait for my parts to come in for my desktop so I can get back to streaming I am going to make a few guides for basic wine installation of games, apps, and even some guides of other workarounds such as how to use virtualbox for curse-voice, learning about other DE's, and whatever else I can think of to pre-occupy myself.

    Keep an eye out!

    The desktop build is as such:

    Raidmax Tornado (flimsy, yes, easily modifiable yes as well!)
    Some asus AM3 board (I don't want to get the model # right now x.x) also it has hybrid crossfire
    XFX R7 250X core edition (can do 4k)
    DeepCool dual fan cooler
    Some cooler master fan with green lights to pump air into the hard drive cages in the front.
    AMD AM3 Phenom Black Edition 3 GHZ
    Antec Earthpower E500P 500 watt 80 plus bronze
    sasmung P800 SSD 64GB boot drive (why would I need a 128 GB boot drive if all I have to store is updates)
    Seagate Barracuda 750 GB for storage
    An older IDE seagate barracuda 250 GB for storage
    250 GB seagate something or another for windows maybe
    160 GB velociraptor drive for either in-between storage of systems or OSX or something
    TP Link 755 Wireless N card (8 mb download on a fibre connection for 15 dollars)
    Logitech G430 headphones, G105 keyboard, and G700s mouse.
    An HP LA2306x 1080p monitor and a dell 1280x1024 monitor.

    There might be something I missed, but fi I were to add up all that i spent on this PC build alone, nothing else, it comes to around 380 bucks because some of the parts were used but new and out of box, just in static bags at the parts depot.

    In total I think over the last 6 months I have spent somewhere of 700 dollars maybe? I dunno, I'm just glad it's almost done.

    Wow very nice computer!
    I'm guessing that you are using onboard SATA and integrated audio as well.

    With that many hard drives, you have a lot of flexibility and options for operating systems
    Well done!

    Did you write "8 mb fibre connection?"
    Thats is crazy! How did you get fibre?

    We've had fibre. In fact we have had fibre for years, and not residential. For whatever reason it's business grade circa 2005. It was put up by AT&T when a business was supposedly going to be built across the road from us. Never was and since the line was bought by comcast. It's the only line out here until you get to the city.

    Also yes. I only have one mini PCI slot open on the board of my comp so the pci x16 and x8 are used by the gpu and wireless card. I was thinking about getting a sound card but decided an SSD eventually would be a better deal.

    Back to that net connection, we get 35 down constant, 50 down burst, and 15 up constant, 17 up burst. Tie that with low ping and bam.

    Wow, really nice!
    How much is that costing you monthly?
    I'm paying about $50.00 monthly for 8 down constant
