Default Check out \'Black Beauty\', my new PC.....

Well, I'm Black and I'm proud now. Some good friends helped me put together my dream PC, 'The Black Beauty', and I just got most of the tweakin done. I had been using a little Compaq 700mhz w/ a 15" monitor for over year (just 11 tracks on Dave_C). This looks like it was designed by Darth himself, and what's in it's not bad either.

Black Hitachi 19" Flat-faced Monitor
Athlon XP1700+
GigaByte GA-7VTXH+ (Built in SB & Ethernet)
WD BB_series system drive (20GB)
GForce II 400 - 64MB
256MB PC2100 DDR DRAM
1394 Firewire 40GB Audio Drive (black)
Floppy Drive
24X CD-RW

and Black keyboard... [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

So, let me gloat for just tonight. It's been a long wait...

If he was capable of massive slide solos on the old one, I wonder what the hell he's gonna do with this?

Have fun Roy. We all look forward to more great music!

Hey Roy,

How much louder is this monster? Any plans for silencing? I'm still using a PIII550 (12 tracks on Davec), and almost feel scared to upgrade because of the noise.

You build that yourself Roy? Sounds like a similar system I just finished for a freind. Like the 19" flat [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] . Just can't afford it right now....what firewire drive did you get. I ordered one of these http://www.scsipro.com/catalog/index.htm
Good for moving projects.

GP,
Like your friend, I had someone like you who built it for me. Along with advice from some great people here on the DUC, I was able to decide which parts I wanted and could afford. But, yeah, definitely got it together with the help of friends...

~Roy
