Thread Starter 
My next system will be dual core. I like to kinda stay behind technology that way they can work out the weaknesses.

S478 is old news. 775 and the conroe will have you better future proofed.
Cool, good luck with that

S478 is a little too old. It's in the same era as my Socket A. You bought 2(?) year old technology

It's called "future-proofing." If you ever want to upgrade your cpu or ram, you're going to need to buy a whole new motherboard and ram.

Also, you say in your first post that you have a 250gb "system drive," and your other two are in a raid0 array. What does "system drive" mean in this case, and why not put that drive in the raid0 array as well.

I got Windows XP installed on the 250GB. I got the 600GB for stuff I download. And I can still upgrade my PC. It'll hold up to a 3.4 Prescott and supports 4GB of RAM.
