    7/10 for midnight

    it can run any game out there at the resolutions you use, so it deserves a decent score - but its hardly impressive.

    9/10 Setup can probably handle anything that is thrown at it, you just need more storage:laugh:

    How good is a 32MB cache drive compared to a 16MB drive?

    how good is HDD A vs HDD B?

    reviews will tell you what you need to know - its like comparing CPU's based on cache size, its meaningless

    I think what he means is what are the advantages of having 32MB over 16MB.

    more performance.


    but since you dont get the option of the same drive with and without, its kind of moot. you have to look up the individual models.

    6.88/10 for Reventon, low ram freq and cpu hold back the potential of the 4850. Nice case though.

    I think that is debatable. This thread isn't the proper grounds for such discussion so I wont try to flamebate you into an argument.

    The cpu isn't holding back the system at all. I think it's a perfect match.

    Oh btw 9.9/10 for ya :)

    Nah, that's the combo I have in my secondary/kids rig. The 4850 is a little held back by the 6400+ at lower resolutions, but not by much. Doesn't hurt playability much, aside from it will get the hiccups every now and again. Throw a higher resolution at it, and the bottleneck disappears tho.
