I would use the WD Raptor as my main drive and then run a raid 0 setup with the two 400gig drives. If anyone recently one the lottery and would like to donate this system to me just let me know. ;) 


Obviously I'm an AMD fanboy and my system would be a gaming rig. What would yours be?

Well have an old pentium 60mhz with 32mb ram and a 1GB hardrive that I saw in the back of a gift shop. $5.00 for the whole thing, I still think my Ti-85 graphing calculator puts up a good fight.
February 14, 2006 9:27:55 PM

i woulda offered them 3 and walked out the store with it :) ... just to let every1 know, 2 gb memory is actually better than having 4, i read somewhere.. (toms maybe) that more than 2gb starts to slow ur comp down, and xp might not even see over 3gb.,..

February 14, 2006 10:31:18 PM

dude LN2 is such a hassle as its a liquid which needs to be maintained at certain temperatures to keep its cooling ability, id stick with vapochill or even just a TEC watercooling system would do very well.

Rustol3um u have too much time on ur hands :)  and by the way! x1900xtx in xfire pwns gtx512 in sli :)  it feels like 600 watts wouldnt be enough power for that beast of a machine
February 14, 2006 11:08:34 PM

Thats ok.........not like those BFG's are availible....and can you really have xtx in Crossfire mode anyways? I thought it was just the XT's with one master and a slave card.....but wuteva..........and yes I have too much time on my hands today....heh
February 14, 2006 11:12:40 PM

A mac my ass oh wait you a mac fanboy nevermind :p 
February 14, 2006 11:21:35 PM

i think xtx can be in xfire, kinda a bad idea if they didnt.. as for a quad mac, just to let u know mac are much more powerful than pc, a mac emulated windows within osX and had almost no slowdown, looked like it was on a pc, a pc tried to run osX on windows, ran like a celeron 233 running windows xp... not really a huge point, but helping to prove the point that macs are indeed more powerful, now they just need full support of windows games... and apps, and a much lowerp rice tag
February 15, 2006 12:10:39 AM

yeah cause powerpc is great for games lok at the new xbox and ps3 why can a ibm power pc at 1ghz run games better than a pentium m at 1.8 ghz?
February 15, 2006 12:31:10 AM

well xbox has 3 3.2 ghz processors (xbox360) xbox1 had a 733mhz processor... i too would like to know the answer to this if anyone knows, because a ps2 has a 333mhz cpu(i think) and it can run decent graphics, try running any new game on a 333... u get the idea... ne1 have a reason?
February 15, 2006 12:36:47 AM

yes game consoles are just for gaming and everything is dedicated to gaming and the ps2 core clock is around 295 mhz and the sis graphics are at 200 the xbox proc is at 733 mhz and graphics are nforce 4 4 pipes aate 300 mhz the gamecube i dont know.
February 15, 2006 12:46:56 AM

gamecube is between ps2 and xbox 500ish if i remember correctly, but then why cant we dedicate a certain amount of cpu/pipes to pure gaming? and would setting a game to high priority in task manager have any affect? it seems kinda stupid if an xbox can run games as good as my computer for 150 bux where i spent close to 600... itd be cool if there was some kinda program to let u dedicate the certain cpu to games? i think thats what u were saying from before, i hope at least... also why cant computers run games off of a cd instead of a harddrive? they load maps and screens at the beginning of a game so why cant it just run off a cd? kinda makes me wanna get a keyboard and go to xbox360.. but then again ive been saying that for years
February 15, 2006 12:50:58 AM

ya parlee but you forget one thing that the console maker makes their own os and instruction set for their games look at the xbox the proc runs at 733 mhz with powerpc instructions which are for gaming and only gaming look if mac had more games they could run them as good as an fx proc!
February 15, 2006 12:54:22 AM

oh and parlee take the imac g5 and run it on doom 3 agianst the fx-55 it will beat it! look at the xbox 360 it's 3 cores one is dedicated to charecter interaction one to the enviroment and one for the audio thats what i heard wonder if it's true?
February 15, 2006 12:54:34 AM

i dont understand why u couldnt install that on say a usb drive and plug it in and boot from the usb using the powerpc... it just seems kinda dumb to me that were spending thousands of dollars on computers for gaming when people spend 400 bux on an xbox 360 with 3 3.2 ghz processors...
February 15, 2006 1:05:06 AM

yea, macs are more powerful they jsut arnt as mainstream because there more expensive, less customizable and have less support for games and other apps

i dont get why u hate dell... k fine the xps is expensive for little perforamnce but so what, they can get away with that, but if u look at there sub 1000 dollar systems there good deals, yea intel has got dells balls in their mouth because they cant supply amd, but look at there quad gpu desktop, there one of the most advanced and biggest computer companys, there systems are solid if u uninstall all the crap they give u, and they give u it for lower prices, stop dissing dell, u have no reason to, ive owned 4 dells and all still run just as well as when i got them.

Ok, here is my revised "Gaming Enthusiast Dream Machine " based on parts that are readily available as of 2/28/06, all on ZipZoomFly. The only exception is the Arctic Silver which is from NewEgg since ZipZoomFly is completely out of stock. This is a somewhat more "Realistic and Solid" high end AMD setup than some others that i have seen lately, IMHO. Even considering this is in response to a "unlimited budget topic" I figure this kind of setup is still for someone with either deeper pockets than average or a nice sized tax return. 8)

The Case and UPS are heavy so they cost alot to ship. There are better deals for shipping elsewhere on those two items, but I'm sticking to my guns on this one. Also, some might prefer BOSS, Altec Lansing or other high end brands over Creative for a Sorround Sound Seaker package.

I tend to choose parts from major brands that receive good ratings, have a proven history of reliability across the board and provide a solid manufacturer warranty.
