I'm getting the solid state cause the guy who imports them is a friend of me and he wants me to test them on regular pc. So I get it a a cheap price.
I am still wondering if everything will run with 64bit windows ...
Ok taking notes of this, for prices of the ssdisks, you can find them on www.ssdisk.eu but he's the european importer, you'll have to look for his american counterpart as he doesn't ship to usa.
You misunderstand, I want to know what you paid for them. I can get SSD pricing all day long.
What are the advantages of sata dvd drives?
Having a SATA DVD for the next MOBO that has no PATA ports at all. I don't know when that will happen, but that is the direction things are going. It also leaves the PATA port open for future use. Also, it uses smaller cables.
I'm sorry but I can't tell you the price I paid for the ssdisk, but if you want to I can give you this guy's email and you just have to mail him with my regards.
mail me on ingmar*dot*vg*at*gmail*dot*com if you want his details.
If you wait a few weeks then also look at the new Penryn CPUs (to be released next month). I'm sure a Q9450, with a bit of overclocking, will beat the E6850.
780i will support Triple SLI. Cards that support it too are the GTX and Ultra. The new 8800 GTS G92 and 8800 GT won't support it. For now I'd just buy one GTX or Ultra. Add a second or even a third when new games demand more power or when you upgrade the monitor. That computer will kick a$$
well, I've read some tests of the mobo and they were all positive, besides I can't find a 680i anywhere in Belgium, been calling/mailing around and noone does seem to have it anymore.
As I already have one 20inch samsung I'm just getting a second one so they fit nicely together, I thought of getting a 30inch but I prefer working on 2 seperate monitors. Maybe if I have enough cash in the next round I'll get 2 30inches
On the cpu: the prize is ok and I'll get a penryn in Q2 when their prices have dropped.
So far on graphics: one ultra, with a dollar to euro conversion like this they are reasonably prized
Ok, great news, the new gigabyte nforce chipset (780i) won't arrive anywhere till first week of January ...
(I talked to the European sales representative)
Anyone can give me some alternatives or knows some stuff that'll be out by jan 2008?
