I built a quad core pc for work, and that has been running nicely, so I decided to catch up with my home pc.

Work PC
ASUS P5W DH Deluxe motherboard
Intel Q6600 2.4GHz quad core
4GB Corsair XMS2-pro ram
Quadro FX 1300
Samsung 22" wide LCD
some SATA and Ultra SCSI 160 drives

Home PC
ASUS P5KC motherboard (Intel P35, supports quad, dual, 45nm chips & DDR2 & DDR3)
Intel Q6600 2.4GHz quad core
Nvidia Geforce 8800 GT 512MB
2 GB Kingston HyperX (may add more later if I dual boot to Vista 64)
Dell 20.1" 2007WFP LCD + 19" NOKIA CRT
SATA WD Caviar 320GB
DVD Burner 20x dual layer

I'm upgrading from my Athlon XP 3000+..... woo that was getting old!

The new system including powersupply was $988 mostly from Newegg.

The monitors, keyboard, mouse, printer, speakers, scanner, and case are all reused only the internal components have been replaced.

If I were doing another work PC I would probably do about the same system with a Quadro FX 1700 or 1400.
