Not my Turning Point gaming rig

This is Emily2.
She was named after my then-girlfriend, now wife.
I built her.
She is:

Thermaltake Armor Case
OCZ GameXstream 700 watt power supply
ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe
AMD FX-55 San Diego Core CPU
ZALMAN 9500A CPU Cooler
2 gb OCZ DDR400 CAS-2 RAM
MSI Nvidia 7950 GX2
Plextor PX-716SA DVD+-RW
74 GB Western Digital Raptor hard drive
250 GB Western Digital 7200 RPM hard drive
Saitek Eclipse keyboard
Logitech MX-518 mouse
Alienware mouse pad from a dead Alienware laptop. Alienware sucks. Don't buy their crap.
Creative Inspire 5.1 speakers
Sun Microsystems 19 inch Flatscreen CRT monitor
Windows XP Professional x64-edition

The power supply is actually a recent addition as the OCZ PowerStream 520 committed suicide a week or so ago. She was originally built to sell on ebay, but I fell in love. She originally had two Nvidia 256 mb 9800 GTX's in SLI, but I sold them and bought the 1 gb 7950 GX2. There was also an X-Fi card, but I sold it too. Onboard sound card now.

This is Emily1.
The real Emily now uses her.
I built her also.
She is:
Apevia Case with built in 420 watt power supply
MSI RS480M2-IL Radeon Xpress 200 Micro-ATX motherboard
AMD 3700+ San Diego Core
Stock cooler (used to have a Zalman cooler, but it died when I swapped the cpu out to test a CPU from another computer)
1 GB Corsair DDR 400 CAS 2 RAM (The kind with activity LEDS)
PowerColor ATI X800XL with Zalman cooler and memory heatsinks
Creative Labs Audigy 2 Value sound card
Seagate Barracuda 80 Gb hard drive
Foxconn WLL-3350 WLAN card (Hence the antennae on top)
Microsoft InelliEye mouse
Logitech Keyboard
Hyundai 19" LCD monitor
Windows XP Professional

Anyway, if I win, the Real Emily will get Emily2, and my brother will get Emily1. I'll probably also add 2 more gigs of ram to the new machine, just for fun.

Here's the Real Emily, for comparison to the electronic ones.
