    Hey All
    I have been a Windows User all my life and I have a certain comfort level with it of course. But recently few months ago I entered the Mac World picking up a Mac Book Pro and I love it to say the least. Its def. someonething different but at the same time refreshing and new to me which i like. Now here is my dilemma should I get an Imac or stay with I currently have. I was thinking of maybe my current rig to help fund the Imac.

    Currently I have

    30 inch Dell LCD display
    CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Toledo 2000 MHz HT 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core Processor
    Memory CORSAIR XMS 2 GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory
    Motherboard ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce SPP 100 ATX AMD Motherboard
    Hard Drive 1 Western Digital Caviar RE WD2500YD 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
    Optical Drive 1 NEC 16X DVD+R DVD Burner
    Optical Drive 2 NEC Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive
    Video EVGA GeoForce 7800 GTX 256 mb Ram
    Audio On Board Sound RealTek
    Network Card On Board Network Card
    Case XG Dragon CA-DRG-K-B2 Black 1.2mm Aluminum alloy ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
    Power Supply 650 W

    With Windows Vista Ultimate.

    I built this machine last year and it has been pretty smooth. But the Case is pretty huge and it gets pretty hot in there.

    Im wondering what you guys think stay with wat I have or get an Imac even though the screen is 6 inches smaller.

    Since you already have a Mac, I think it comes down to whether you want to use Windows or OSX. I think it's nice to have one of each OS, personally. :)

    That's a nice PC; I'd keep it another year since you already have a very good Mac. Maybe upgrade the videocard to 8800 if money is burning a hole in your pocket.
