Might eventually make a tower PC for gaming which will take some time. Thing is, how did you guys make your gaming rigs? Also, any advice on transfering select programs/games will be appreciated too.

Thanks in advance.

every machine i owned has been built by myself ;D
at least every 6 months i will strip it right dowm to clean it out right down to the front panels coming off.

Tip once you have your machine up and running I have 1 hard drive and 3 partitions
C: = windows o/s D: = games [when I install games they have their own partition so if I have to reinstall windows I dont have to reinstall the games with their updates] E: = utils partition [latest direct x, video drivers] everything you need to setup when you have installed windows from scatch.

I also take photos of my prev rigs. ;D

Think I need to upgrade to something a little more powerful, maybe something with a colour video card?
