Its my water cooler. Basically those tubes behind the monitor deliver water over the GPU and the CPU, back to the cooler to some radiators. The wc has a fan in it that spins at 2100RPM ( I dare you to hear it ) that keeps the ambient temp of the water around room temp ( normally 70F ).

What motherboard are you using? I didn't know that there are any motherboards that support 64bit AMD processors and that use DDR2. Also I was unaware that DDR2 came in PC3200, is that a typo?

Sweet setup. Once I get another laptop, and don't have to worry about carting my desktop to lan parties, I think I may be watercooling mine as well... if only to eliminate the fans... this fucker is loud.

Im looking for a LCD currently and that one looks pretty beast. How is it with CSS and the likes? All the Dell LCDs ive seen were pretty shitty when it came to refresh rates.

Yea, because everything is written in 32-bit code. Not much software takes advantage of the 64-bit architecture right now. In time it will be faster.

I realize, but by then, there will be a new windows64, and the one that is here currently will probably be useless.

True, true. That is a very good point.

Photoshop and Quake are not reason enough.
