Northwood proc, 875 chipset, stable-as-fuck mobo, stable-as-fuck RAM, serial ATA RAID0, reliable burner, dual-head for simultaneous video-watching and browsing or double-monitor browsing, direct DVD audio decoding (no downsampling) and high signal-to-noise, pretty case, and an accurate, rechargeable mouse. uNF.
Debating the idea of finally ditching my shitty, broken printer. Want (but wouldn't die without, there's always Kinko's) wide-format color, don't want to pay out the ass for either the printer or it's ink. May just say fuck it and get a grey-hat designjet 120. Changed my mind at the last minute about the mobo, was going to get an MSI. Realized I don't trust MSI for reliability or support, and I'm willing to sacrifice a little speed for that.
