That was the coolest name for a cat I have heard. I suddenly got a rush to get one and name it after a computer/software part . Pixel is taken, I guess voxel will do the trick as well

Yes certainly, Dave had to chime in and defend the honour of his beloved 6600 LE, which he had a very hard time parting with...

But thanks. It'll do the job for now. Future upgrades include a better controller with more ports and many more HDD's. Some 4TB drives would be very nice...

Yeah I know the feeling.. I sold off my big file rig (peaked 18x1TB) late 09 and missed it since.. Netflix holds it good enough though.

I'm so glad to see another Stacker user! My main build is still using a Stacker, and I don't see myself changing it anytime soon. Fantastic case, which is so easily modable!

How on earth can you be content with streaming quality? Or are you still using discs? It's gonna take a whole lot more before I change over to streaming my content.

For the amount I watch, it's "good enough"

Maybe running a Display switch ?

my ex father in-law had a switch for screen... plug VGA but the switch is DVI and he had 3 screens on his desk and could plug at least 10 computers on them

I use a EK 360 with 3 GT 1850rpm's for both CPU as GPU.
I don't know why you would want the 4250's, I can go 4.5Ghz on the i7 and still have it below 60C under load, the GTX580 doesn't even get hot.
4250rpm is a lot of noise...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szj4L3cMuak As noisy as a HP server!
GT's sound best at their stock speed btw.
