New Anubis

My just-over-three year old desktop machine was due a replacement.

    type     |                       name
-------------+---------------------------------------------------
 Motherboard | Asus P6T Deluxe
 CPU         | Intel i7 920 D0 Stepping Retail
 RAM         | OCZ 6GB PC3-12800C8 DDR3 (3x2GB) (OCZ3G1600LV6GK)
 Case        | Lian-Li PC-A71B
 Graphics    | XFX Radeon HD 4890 1GB
 HDD         | Western Digital Caviar Black WD640AALS
 PSU         | Antec TruePower New 650W
 DVD-RW      | LG GH22NS40
 Backup HDD  | Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EADS
 CPU Cooler  | Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme
 Fan         | Noctua NF-P12 120mm
(11 rows)

Initially, it’ll be running some version of Windows 7 (though I also have a spare Vista license) but given it’s not released there’s no point considering how much that’ll cost for now.

The plan is to put the two WD6401AALSs in a RAID array then backup in some manner to the WD10EADS. Given the price of RAM (£70.99 for 3x2GB), I’m half-tempted to go nuts and have 12GB of RAM.

Some sort of computer-assemblage pr0n to follow – the motherboard and CPU cooler should be with me tomorrow…
