My advice: get either the VIA or the Barton. If you get the Barton, don't get the Envy sound card ; use the NForce2's soundstorm instead and save 30$... It's almost as good and it costs nothing :wink: With a good heatsink and a silent fan, (i.e. SLK-900a, Switech MCX-462-V with 92mm panaflo) you can...

In fact, the A64 3000+ even outperforms the 3.2Ghz P4 in some cases if i remember right... It can also run potentially cooler (with cool n' quiet) Go look at the reviews on www.anandtech.com to get an idea and maybe that'll help you change your mind... Also, on the main page of anandtech, there are ...

New Raptor noise?

HI!

Anyone heard the new 74GB WD Raptor (WD740GD) in action?

Thanks

Hi all! I'd like to know if any P160 owner could confirm if a 120mm Panaflo would fit in the front of the P160 (on the slide-out fan tray). I ask because Antec says it can accomodate only 25mm deep fans... The Panaflo's are like 37mm deep I think... Can anyone confirm this? I'd really like to replac...
