Haven't unpacked it yet. I know it's nothing crazy-fast, but quite an upgrade from my current one.

One quick question related to your toys there: I'm looking at getting either the ASUS A8N-E or A8N-SLI right now. I will never use SLI as I could really care less about PC games, but are there other features on the SLI that are worth the extra cost?

I will most likely be using a 3000+ AMD chip and 1024MB of Corsair PC3200 Dual Channel RAM. I haven't decided on a video card yet, but it may end up being a 6600GT as well.

Anyone have any thoughts?

That seems like a rather powerful specced PC considering you dont care for gaming. You really ought to buy something less powerful and save some money tbh

I just bought a Creative Zen 5gb.

I actually wanted to go for the iPod 4gb, but when I came in the store i saw:
iPod mini 4 gb: 209 euros
Creative 5 gb: 177 euros WITH fm radio and a power adapter so i don't have to recharge on a computer...

So i changed my mind fast...

by the way, is WMA smaller then MP3, cause i could only get 900 songs on the 5 gb.

Nice decision. ;) And yes, wma is smaller for an equivalent quality, but I don't know if it's worth all the effort to convert your mp3 files.
