    Sick.

    In a similar vein, I found an old sig image featuring a nearly naked adriana lima and the following sweet rig deets:

    AMD Athlon XP 1700+
    DFI Ultra Infinity
    2x256MB Corsair PC3500
    ATi Radeon 9700 Pro
    Audigy 2ZS
    36GB 10k RPM WD Raptor
    80GB WD 7200RPM

    Don't have a picture of this hotness, but I do have a pic of my first WC setup:



    pretty sure that was an A64 3000+ and that was my X800XT AIW

    DFI used to make good boards back in the day. I remember those.
    36 gig Raptor sweet.

    That A7M266 I was running was one of the premier AMD boards back then.
    There were long threads about it here when it was amdmb.com.

    Do you remember this?
    Sadly all the links are dead.

    ^^oh man that's quality stuff in that old TR link.

    I remember the a7m266 but it was a bit before I built myself an enthusiast rig. EPOX RDA+ was the first
