    Current stuff? Alright...

    Then I guess what I have works pretty well:

    900Mhz AMD Thunderbird CPU
    Asus A7V Mobo
    256MB PC-133 SDRAM
    30.7GB Maxtor 7200 HDD using Ultra ATA/100
    300W PS
    3Dfx Voodoo5 5500 AGP w/ 1.04.01 beta drivers
    SB Live! Value
    Klipsch v.2 400w THX speakers
    Pioneer 16x DVD/40x CD-ROM
    HP 9510i 12x8x32x CD-RW
    3Com/USR Hardware modem
    3Com 10/100 NIC
    Madcatz Panther XL FPS joystick
    CTX 19" VL950ST with 4 port USB hub
    USB expansion card
    WindowsME all the latest drivers and updates

    My only complaint (and this is nitpicking) is the noise. But I guess when you have five fans (one on the CPU, two on the Voodoo, and two case fans) it's gonna be loud.

    Well, I just bought the closest I'll probably ever come, but...

    I bought a 900mhz Thunderbird w/256mb SDRAM, 30gb Ultra ATA 100 HD, SB Live!, 64mb GeForce 2 GTS, 22" Sony Trinitron Monitor, Klipsch Pro media v.2 speakers (and yes they RAWK!), MS Natural Elite Pro and Optimouse...and yadda yadda yadda. If money was no object I'd get a Falcon Northwest Mach V -1.5ghz P4, Three 18gb Seagate Cheetah's in RAID 0, with a 75gb IBM Deskstar as back up. SB Live! 5.1, 32" Trinitron Monitor w/ two 22" on the side. An NV20 (I'd wait the 2 to 3 months for it to get released) 3D card with a Matrox G400 in PCI (if they make a PCI version), Klipsch Pro media v.2.1 (real soon...heh)w/ decoder and...and that's all that comes to mind. =}
    You work out the money and I'll be glad to buy it...hehe. (if only... *sigh*)

    Lata peeps, God bless y'all.
