I'm 27643836% with you. My gut is telling me that it's time to build one. My main gripe is all we want to charge is our (insert flame war comment) Apple gear and I'd like to use our chargers for travel use. Bad news is from my research that the/our Apple gear has some pretty specific...
I do plan on installing the games to the HDD, especially since the unit as a whole apparently runs quieter when going from the HDD, and as it goes for all things running off of a drive, I assume things will load a bit quicker.
I am down for modding the thing, I like that idea of adding RAM...
The other day I ordered a 360 from Microsoft ExpertZone and I'm going to assume it's not a Jasper chipset. I also have ordered another shell off of eBay so I can paint the shell to match my PS3 (I don't think white is going to cut it for me). At any rate, I'm going to have the bastard open...
I was able to keep the PC up all night without a single HDD connected to it.
Here are the specs:
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
AMD 3800+ X2
Kingston Value RAM
BFG 600W PSU
Maxtor HDD's SATA and PATA
Random DVD optical drives
Sound Blaster Audigy 2

Ahh, the trials and tribulations of running your own board....I sympathize. I even tried to bypass with direct url ;)

1. Dropped in 98EXL's WinXP Unattended build CD
2. Popped in MSDN disk, installed 2k3 from XP

I have a Win2K3 STD R2 box that I want to do some testing on, and I can't get a damn CD-R to boot.
