9/10, apevia makes cheap cases and most asus cooler doesnt cool that well for the price
LittleLizard: 8/10 nice little system.
well actually my asus lion square cools my quad core by 20 degrees vs stock i'd say thats pretty good and for my case its not cheaply made at all it was 180 dollars and its the best case ive had other than my armor series thermaltake
the lion square got awesome reviews its there best one by far it just came out a couple months ago
8/10 you do know that two 1GB cards doesn't make a 2GB card right?
crossfired 1gb 4670's = waste of money. Shoulda gone with one 512mb 4850
This is true.
not bad 9/10
9/10 i love that case
performance isn't that bad with windows 7 running
8/10 major points for the GTX260
I'd love to see a different case though. Something about that much plastic irks me
@ cdawall: Really? I might need to check out Windows 7.
@ Binge: 9.5/10. Nice OC on the i7. Oh yeah, and how would you say the i7 performs compared to a C2Q?
Windows 7 really is much more optimized and I am on an old beta build of it (6801). I need to install the latest.
build 7000 is awesome and i'm only running 512mb of ram right now and its still quite fast
here's what my current build looks like its really a quite nice internet PC
cdawall is there anyway to overclock the atom?
just setfsb etc.
have you tried it yet? If not are you going too?
i plan on it but give me a couple of days for case etc. to come in once i pick between a 2400pro and 8400GS i'm going to run crysis for kicks and giggles
1 - ok, but i say in average, most asus coolers doesnt cool enough to beat their high price. i have to check out some reviews.
as for the case, also, i say in average, but sincerely, i prefer an armor over any apevia
6/10, 7 if you OC the cpu
C2Q is easier to OC, runs with the strength of my Dual with the cores of a Quad. The memory bandwidth helps with mundane tasks. It boots a lot faster. For 3D and CAD it's absolutely leagues better than the C2Q. I've tried E8600, Q9550, and not the i7 920 within the past 4 months.
Hey man. I know this isn't anything super high res, but trust me I go from low
level stuff like this:
to higher poly w/texture. Mind you I'm good at this stage of the game, but
I really need to work on my higher level 3D art. All is smooth as butter to
render. My Cinebench marks alone put people to shame who have render farms.
So, for a art person, going I7 is a great thing? I'm thinking of hitting another 4gbs for all the multi tasking I do.. hmmmm
10/10 for your rig binge!
