I built a new workstation Tuesday, February 23, 2010. I built the last one starting in June of 2008, upgraded April of 2009. It was time for something entirely new.
The system is a very capable mid ranged workstation, comprised of:
ASUS P7H55-M Pro Motherboard mATX
Intel Core i5 660 3.33Ghz Processor
4G Corsair DDR3-1333 2X2048 Memory
Intel X25-M 80G SSD
Western Digital 5000AAKS 500G SATA II drive
Antec Sonata III Case with Earthwatts 500W power supply
I use a 22″ Samsung 220WM LCD, a Microsoft Intellimouse explorer 3, and a Microsoft Comfort curve 2000 keyboard.
