great for a LAN rig, although if you invest another 100 and get blu-ray you can use it as a multi-media rig too.

idk, but its been working 24/7 for 7 years so its decent. Its the only reason I got a 4670, as a 4830 is only $10 more but would have required a $50 psu upgrade as well. So Ill be EXTREMELY pissed off if it doesnt work, lol.

Why the 4670 ICEQ? A 4830 would've been a better option for the same price. A small bump in PSU price would've supported it.

because a 4830 would have required a psu upgrade (only 15A @ 12V, lol), I dont think its worth the $60 extra the 4830 would cost with a new psu.
Any cheap psu id be worried about going out so id have to get a $50 psu which i want to avoid when mine works.
