:smile: i just ordered a new laptop - and got my work to pay for it! p4 2.8 ghz, 2*512 RAM - getting it custom built by some company out of Los Alamos - going to be running half-linux (mandrake 10.0) and half winXP. i feel like such a materialistic bastard, but i can't wait for this shit to arrive... (except that once it arrives i have to config apache, mysql, etc.. it's going to be a pain in the ass).

You should get two sticks of ram so you can take advantage of the dual channel mobo.

dude, this is just me...but if i were you, i would go with the 64-bit AMD with maybe a gigabyte motherboard. Take full advantage of on-board raid and the 4 IDE channels to hook up 4 80 gig drives for a total of 320 gigs. Gigabyte has a dual channel memory setup so you can get 1 gig of 400 MHz DDR (2 512M sticks) and you are set with your processor and storage capabilities.

Future upgrades, depending on money flow, will include an ide flash adapter with a 512mb or 1gig flash adapter. This will serve as a paging file.

Why would you want a single 600 GB partition?  :nut:
I'm surprised someone like you wouldnt know the grand rule of 'make small boot drive partition, use 2nd as storage'...
Stressing an HD for 2 years doesn't compare to losing it ALL to 1 stupid virus.  I've been killing mine for at least 5 years now... no problems yet.  :wink:

You dont need to cool your R9600 dude.  My R9600 PRO is OC'd from 400/300 to 500/365, stock cooling.  And its not even warm. Remember that the 9600 and 9800 are built on smaller microns that run a LOT cooler.  I think that was one of the bonuses of buying the 9600pro...it oc'd like a bitch straight outta the box.  :thumbup:


I agree, go with dual channel RAM. 


:sun:
