    6/10 It still gets the job done though. There's a lot of room for overclocking.

    Good all-rounder. Not the best of components, but not the worst, either. 6.75/10.


    I just wanted to get a re-vote on mine with the new hardware. lol

    I give you 8.5/10 dude. Very nice setup you have. Pretty flash, excellent performer I bet. Certainly blow mine away! This is where I sit back and prepare to be shat on.


    EDIT: Oh crap, Hookey snuck in there wile I was typing, my rating directed at Wile E's rig.

    2ND EDIT: I better do Hookey as well, can't have the poor sod missing out on MY opinion, lol. Ummmm, now I've set a benchmark I will have to think about this. But not too long or someone else will jump in and post before I finish editing (*get on with it you twat*) shuddup brain..... OK. 8,5/10 for you as well Hookey.

    I won't go too hard on you! The athlon was good in its day, I had and 9800se also (unlocked i hope!) decent mobo and cooling so i'm going to give you 5.23 out of ten. you lost points for the pirated software! :laugh:

    Edit: I didn't dock any points for the cheap psu because the sound of it is probably punishment enough!

    Thanks, but I have to disagree, my mobo aint that good, in retrospect it was not a great choice but I knew diddly-squat about computers 5 years ago when I built this thing. That said it has been very stable all this time so I shouldn't complain. A bit harsh deducting points for pirated software!

    I give you 8.6 because blue orbs are cool man.


    EDIT: It happened again!! Noooo. fafa gets 6.5 from me because I'm prejudiced against P4. Sorry.

    I suppose I can only give 4/10 for what I am sure is a nice tidy but ageing system without much graphics power or memory....sorry! :(

    I gave you the extra points for the killer cooling system. In fact, make that a 9.25/10

    Well that .25 belongs to you cause you gave me the second opinion to go for it.

    I can't make this damn card run hot. It's like a curse! Hehe

    Fine fine, I'll stop my ATI hating. Rating edited.

    9.5

    Not 10 only because you're using onboard sound.

    Magnificent rig! Good overclock. Great RAM and v-card. Makes me jealous... :D

    Not bad. Good high-mid range system. 8/10. Bonus points for the sound card/speaker setup.

    Ya, I'm such a loser about sound cards. I mean, while it's not superb, onboard HD is decent, does the trick. Buying a sound card to me is like a monitor, I just can't be arsed to care.

    I need to be more tech head geeky, maybe enough exposure to Wile will help.

    I like Panther's speakers, and clock speed on that chip.

    Just fyi, I was a loser about sound cards too (to the extent that in the last 15 years I've never had a sound card in my pc!) but you can't believe the difference it makes. Onboard sound might be fine if you have standard pc speakers but when I bought mine I had been on the verge of thinking they were really low quality or something. The satellite sound wasn't strong. I mean you can always put the volume up but then they'd be overwhelmed by the sub. No detail. Very muffled. I noticed this especially when I set up my card. Like you can't say that a peach is more delicious than an apple unless you actually taste the peach. Only once you taste it you would be conscious of what you had been missing all along!

    I had played around with the settings of my soundmax onboard to no avail. But now, I've discovered that Oblivion runs in surround (thought my left speaker was going faulty till I realized that the 'fire' behind me was causing the crackling sound :eek: Also, when different people in games talk at the same time they are all hearable and you don't hear things like a crowd talking. And for music and general sound, my speakers were stabilized in that the sub no longer overpowers the satellites and you can't hear the tune, now I can up the volume as much as I want and the tune is still heard together with an awesome bass.... :D

    Tk I might someday get around to it. No scanner atm.

    BP, I know what you mean, it's the same with gaming peripherals. People wouldn't believe how much a good mouse can offer you etc.

    And it's worse in my case because I'm a musician as well. For years I've been working with mixers and mastering recordings. I just haven't ever bothered using my computer though; rather old school style studio hardware.

    I'm a bit suprised this thread is still alive.
