Little Update, Sorry for not responding yesterday. Drove 8hrs total and spent 13hrs at a tech show in LA yesterday. Started building my rig today when
the processor came. ripped my chassis down, cleaned it out, put everything together and what do u know, my brand new 600watt Power supply is deader
than a doornail:bash:
Pulled out the 500watter that survived the fire and got the rig up and running. Im Kinda partial to Ati but i use both. Ive seen good and bad from
both sides over the years. I see whats gonna give me the most bang for my buck at the time of build Mike. I went with the ATI x1900xtx 512meg. The 48
pipelines versus nvidias 24. Sittin here on my laptop i brought everything to finish loading the OS and all my software, and i forgot the freakin dvi
cable to my spare LCD...DAMMIT. So the nites shot to hell, gonna go watch the repeat of Battlestar and goto bed. I should be playing by tomorrow nite.
Ill post ya an update with some possible screenshots. I gotta get me some 2142 time in tomorrow nite too.
almost forgot, heres what i built. Asus p5b deluxe motherboard. Intel e6600 processor Overclocked it of course. 2gig of OCZ ddr2-800 ram. Already had
the raptors so i decided to raid them stripe since i seem to run low with just one 74 for the C. I have a 400 gig for D Storage. The game and program
installs are so dam huge anymore you practically need a 100 gig just to have some breathing room on the drive. In a TT Tsunami Chassis. Thats my main
rig, i have 4 others around the house for various other purposes. All Varying in specs. Gonna shift the old 3.2 prescott with 2gig of corsair xms pro
down to the server chassis, since it didnt survive the onslaught of firefighter water.
