    If you mean a PC (I haven't heard them called "clones" [e.g. IBM Clone] in years), then yes I have put one together. Not a raid setup, but I built my last PC.

    It wasn't horribly hard, but depending on your needs it may or may not be worth it. If you one super-high-end PC (like I did at the time) then its totally worth it. Saves LOTS of $$$$. The PC I built would have been about $3000 if I'd bought it from a retail shop, but I did it for like $1500.

    Nowadays, I really don't want/need super-high-end. If I want a major game, I do Xbox 360 now. PC is just for mostly simple stuff, so I use laptops.

    RAID setups aren't hard, but each motherboard is different.

    It'd be great if all the RAID setup was in the BIOS, but many are still requiring a floppy drive (horror of horrors) to load the RAID drivers as you load the OS. In XP when you're in the initial blue screens, a prompt will come up asking if you wish to load a third party RAID driver...you do. Check your driver CD that came with the mobo. It will contain either the files or an exe to create a floppy with the required drivers. Create it and have it ready when you go to load the OS. Follow the prompt, load the driver and configure the RAID.

    Technically, I wouldn't really be "assembling" said goat, now would I?

    Ya, I game with this, so it saved me alot of money. Plus, I like the geekyness of having blue fans and $h!t...

    Holy jeebus, it's been so long since I've seen or heard the term "IBM clone" or "IBM compatible," I really had no idea what this thread was about at first!
