It’s been a long time since I upgraded my PC. I’m pretty sure a post detailing the specs is on here somewhere (or in the wayback when machine) from last time. Since 2004 technology has come a long way and so have games. Being pretty limited to DoD and anything pre HL2 for a number of years started to degrade my position as “gamer”, so something had to be done. $1,800 later:

Intel i7 930 @ 2.8ghz
Asus P6X58D Premium
3 x 2gb Corsair DDR3, Triple Channel
1gb Sapphire ATI 5850
Antec 600w PSU
Antec P183 case

It all went together perfectly and runs like a dream! StarCraft II has been getting a work out, let’s just say that. Even able to review games again, now…
