You could always add an EEPROM to the circuit. Assuming 16 bits of data per reading, a 1Mbit EEPROM can store over 60,000 readings.

All of the Core 2 Extremes on Newegg are quad core except 1, but I think it might be a typo as there is another one listed with the same model number (x6800) that is listed as quad core.

That is a lot of money. Personally, I think you could get an extremely good motherboard for under $300, an 18X DVD+-R with DL support for $30, and RAM for way under $500. Also, I wouldn't go with qu ...

I would say start looking at ASUS motherboards as I've heard good things about them, but never used one personally. I would also recommend staying away from Gigabyte mobos. I have had issues with mi ...

The DS1307 is I2C based, but the 16F628 doesn't have an on board I2C system. You can make a software one by looking at the protocol, but I think it would be easier to get a PIC that has I2C in hardwa ...

When thinking about how many LEDs you can run off a power supply, you need to take into consideration the voltage out of the supply and how much current it can handle (usually in mA).

For a while I was debating getting a 360 or spending twice as much on building a new compy. I think I chose correctly. Do you play on Live much?

Try looking into mosfets. By changing the voltage applied to the gate of the mosfet, you can control how much current flows through it, and control the brightness of the LED. To get a pulsing action ...

If your computer is only 2 years old, then it probably has a PCI-X slot for graphics. PCI-X is much faster than AGP.
