System ran terrible for weeks until I discovered bad ROUND IDE cables on the RAID drives were killing the disk I/O speed & crashing system. Went back to ugly flat ones & it really runs great now - speed & stablity.

Yes, heavy gaming with (3) boys ages 11-12-14. also, just got the new JVC GRV95 MiniDV camcorder & digital video editing is happening big time too (burn DVDs). Trying to get the low-light snapshots to show the case lighting better. A really sweet case from Directron.com
I could have had more performance with a Dual AMD or Xenon system for not much more . But, the case & other gear will transplant mostly to my next Dually system. Had the P-IIIs left from old plan for Dual BP6 P-3 Tualatin, but we all know what the chance for success on that one is!! The way prices on these CPUs have gone up, I might get $400 for the pair in another 6 months!!

The case was only $60 w/o power supply.
Had to add the holes for the 120mm fan at base & (2) 80mm @back.
Power supply is "Real PC" brand - 420W and only $20 (I'm still sceptical)

Nice pix for people to view when they visit the site. Saw the "Nite View" on the home page (BP6). :D
