Hello - I am trying to find a post here in which a member gave the specs of their newly built PC - it sounded screaming fast. What stood out was that they had put it all in an "Alienware" case that had been special ordered. Any thoughts where this post might be? Even searching with "Alienware" didn't get me to it.

Not my post but I am building a nice box as we speak (hope to be done by next week) - ASUS P7P68 Pro motherboard, Core i7-2600K, 16GB 1600 RAM (was gonna do 8 but for $50 extra I went with 16), twin 7200 rpm SATA 6G 3TB drives + one SATA 3G 2TB HD, Win 7 Pro, GEForce 430 video card (96 Cuda cores) w 1GB DDR3 RAM, lots of other goodies...

My case is a Thermaltake with 4 external 5.25 bays, 6 internal 3.5 bays, one 2.5/3.5 SATA 3G hot swap dock, four fans (2 in case, 1 in 750W power supply, 1 on CPU).

What can I help you with?

Birdcat - I was just trying to find that particular posting. Your new machine sounds awesome. Are you building for Vegas 11?

Yes - I am still on VP 8 on my old box and will finally upgrade to the 64 bit version when I can. I am just about done putting everything together and will install the OS this week.

There was a forum thread a couple of years ago called "To Build or not to Build". It talks about almost everything you need to know about building a PC.
