    hardware standardization is always a great idea! About 2 years ago I found a biz clearing out leased Dell GX-280's for $50 each... I bought a few of them and converted two of my "side machines" to them and one hot spare. My side machines are controllers for the laser engraver and one for...

    some saturday just unplug your O/S HDD and say "kaboom" to yourself and then start the stopwatch/// See how long it takes you to get back up and running. Then just pull out the tester drive and plug in your original.

  15. Intel 2600k with SSD / 16 GB/1600 RAM - sharing my experience for reference

    I have been using two WD 10K Raptors in a Raid-0 and think that is a good alternative to an overpriced and undersized SSD. I used two 150gb ones and they cost about $100 each 18 months ago. That gives me a 300gb system drive. If I was going to build a new system today I'd do the same...
