Summary: This thing is heavy, about 34lbs. Don't drop it on your foot. System- MSI K9A2 Plat Mobo with AMD Phoenom 9850 Black edition Dual X1950 XTX uber Edition Video 2 wd Raptor 80GB Raid 0 Coolermaster Real power pro 550 watt cont. PSU 4 GB ocz Reaper HPC DDR2 1266 Sceptre 24 inch widescreen LCD
