So what you guys think??? Thinking I should of got a better graphics card-- maybe the 8800 Ultra, got stuck in that FPS rut, currently using 17" LCD monitor, the Innovision 3D 8800GTS 320MB runs well but I like full detail and AA...
for your monitor, that card is fine. I bought a 8800 GTS 640 with my new system (finally installed windows last night) and not xbit labs tells me I dont need that extra video ram (with benchmarks for proof). I'm hoping future games will be more video ram intensive.
everything else looks fine. word of warning, I couldnt install vista from my sony nec optiarc dvd rw drive (sata dvd writer). your lg should be fine though, the drive I eventually used to install it was an lg IDE dvd writer.
why 2 writers thoug?
also go the same hard drive as you (except 2 of them). fine so far.
System is already built- found out about lightscribe only a few days ago (don't know how I missed it) so had to try it... ASUS drive is so much better in performance & build quility.
I am thinking wait a while before I upgrade graphics card-- will build someone a system and swap my graphics card for a better one. Cheating a bit I know butwill make them savings and sell my card for a good price-- they will never know lol, but will be more than happy.
4 GB of RAM what a pain in the ass to install... Turns out that the update from M$ doesn't install properly when initially downloaded.....
Due to the above I haven't really tested it that much but initial impressions are good, whether that is because I went from DDR2 5400 to 6400 I can't say-- but never mind I think its better so I am pleased.
