    Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro SLI
    2 gigs of OCZ PC3200 LL
    Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2.0ghz
    Zalman Reserator Plus
    BFG Geforce 7800 GT OC (256mb)
    Hauppauge WinTV 2000 for video input (The video in on the Geforce lags too much)
    74 gig second-gen WD Raptor
    300 gig Maxtor SATA
    Antec NeoHE 500
    Memorex 16x dual-layer multi format DVD burner
    Onboard sound
    Samsung SyncMaster 940BW 19" widescreen 1440x900

    I can overclock this baby to 2.5ghz (with HT set to 1x), with the video card doing 468/1.17... Problem is the power usage just about doubles, and I pay my own power bill now. :p So, when I'm not in pursuit of an extra 6,000 3dmarks, I take it easy.

    Cool, this thread just helps in keeping track of upgrades.
    I've got everything above except the cooler. And the 160MB is a Seagate...again(Got the 5 year-Warrant, so I guess I'm safe this time). Next step is bying a PSU.

    New rig I'm building (parts should be by the end of the week):

    Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.4 ghz)

    Asus Striker Deluxe
    Liteon DVDRW

    It will be connected to a 22" Samsung widescreen lcd plus I'll be throwing in a 500gb hard disk that I already own.

    I just aquired a Gforce E5200, 128M vid card. It's PCI so I hope it plays nice with the Number 9 AGP already residing in my box to give me dual screen capability. .99c auction, I'm not complaining.

    Huge, that bloody card needs more power than my entire system.

    Yepper. Not too much of a speed increase over a GTX.

    Yup. Sort of like the difference between an Lambo and a Ferrari when you lose control and hit the ditch.

    $829? Jeez. You can already play the latest games at max HDTV resolution with all the features turned on with a bargain bin $300 card. And if for some reason that isn't enough, you can buy two of 'em still cheaper than this.
     
  12. Professur

    Professur Mushroom at large

    Yeah, but can you install vista with your $300 bargain bin card? I don't think so.

    Good point.

    I just miss the days terribly where you could pick up a decent video card for under $100. (trusty ol' Voodoo 3 2000... it let me play Quake 3 at last)

    Back then, 16 meg on a card was cutting edge, fluffy. I was running a 1M card happily enough.

    Exactly. Back when cutting edge didn't mean having to cut the cost of the rest of your computer to afford it.
