    looks a great setup you got there.
    i would advise a backup thou mainly if there any hardware problems or driver issues. better safe than sorry.
    my fav atm is shadow protect desktop which is creates an image of your whole system incase of problems and comes with a rescue disk if you cant boot in to windows. if i had known about it before i got Acronis true image then i would of brought that instead.

    Thankx to all for your comments. I do visit these forums regularly. My primary concern here is whether I have covered all or most of my bases, with little or no overlap, and the quality of my decisions. Also I must admit to my own lack of confidence. and need of assurence. Back-up and Image software will be next. Tankx Again
