  2. thanks.. sorry abot the double post.. i'm new to this website and posted in the CPU forum first before i found this more appropriate forum. Will find a way to remove them.. appreciate your help.

    Any suggestion of workstation card... thats also only part i'm not so sure of. any suggestion would be welcome.. as for the hard drive i will try to upgrade to 2* 1 TB within the budget. Thanks.
  3. only moderators can delete to the best of my knowledge
  4. sway your swap your veloci for a black and put the extra money into the best workstation card you can get quaddro or fire doesn't matter

    your storage drives should be stripped as well so you'll need to be able to back up or archive your raw material externally
  5. Succesfully deleted other threads.. Again sorry for the inconvenience...
  6. sweet where did you find that option
  7. I selected "EDIT THIS MESSAGE" option on the bottom right corner. Once inside there is a RADIO BUTTON saying DELETE THIS THREAD COMPLETELY.. So just select that option and it will be removed.. cheers..
  8. wow never even noticed that down there thank you
  9. I'm planning to replace the Raptor with this SSD hard drive..

    Western Digital Velcoty Raptor 1000orpm 150 GB-1 -> Samsung 2.5 SSD SATA2 64GB[R:220/W:170].

    Almost the same price but i guess perofrmance should be better. Problem is its only 64 GB. I guess it should be enough for Windows 7 + other softwares..But performance is 3x times better..

    As for Quadro I couldn't find one that i could fit within the 2500 USD budget.. Most quadro available are over 750 USD.

    Only QUADRO in range was this one

    [Leadtek]Quadro FX580 D3 512MB ZalmanVF2000 PCI-E -> 350 USD

    Thanks..
  10. Fire Workstation

    ATI FirePro V3750 D3 256MB PCI-E -> 350 USD
  11. well i found a lot of cards in all price ranges took about 15 seconds

    once again just pick up a cheap black drive and spend the rest on workstation card
  12. Thanks again. I'm located in S.Korea and only have access to few Quadro and Fire series. But still i have modified the hard drive and replaced it with a advanced WORKSTATION/

    Seagate Barracuda 1TB (2) and
