9/10 with the overclock.
9/10. Nice rig man. Real nice.
8/10, nice rig. There could be improvement but it is still very nice.
9.8/10 for dark ego, get another 4890
i can understand that rating, small screen, only a 512MB video card - onboard audio and a B grade CPU cooler as well - its the ram, CPU and PSU that make your system decent, but those other parts would hurt your score.
8.5/10 nice super Pi Score I wonder if Xeons are better with calculations I think so, I got like 13.4 secs super Pi q6600 3.6ghz. for more speed (stable), I would need over 1.5v.
its not related to the xeon, its just that this is 45nm with 6MB cache (whereas Q6600 is 2x4MB)
About the screen, it was a gift to replace a 5 year old viewsonic CRT.
Besides it's great for the distance I sit from it, and 1680 x 1050 really isn't that bad.
About the GPU: When I bought it there was no 1 GB 4870, and you had to take out a small loan to buy a 4870 X2
On the CPU cooler, I admit it's not anywhere near as good as a TRUE. But it is the best cooler that doesn't require being bolted through the MB.
About the sound, I've got an old Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Gold PCI card laying around, would that make a difference?
well thats the point - WHEN you bought it. its almost midrange now, not high end.
My PC isnt far off being pushed out of enthusiast and back into high end - its not i7, it doesnt have the latest graphics cards, its only DDR2, etc.
8.5 very nice pi score, upgraded and oc things wat i get!?!?!?!
6.5/10 You need a better CPU man!
i no i no man but monies is involved an i dont have any an id say a 7.5-8 purly coz i dnt no much about amd but going of ova stuff
I know, I just didn't expect it to become obsolete so quick. I was getting 7.5 ratings when my system had a 5600+, radeon 2600, 500 watt PSU and a CRT monitor.
8.5/10 to Chuck216, people forgot to rate my PC curious as to where its standing in the life of TPU. New card this Fall/Winter.
8/10 only thing holding it back is mid-range gpu
Mainboard man.. mainboard.
3.4Ghz PII: Good.
Thermaltake: -0.1 hate the brand.
4GB ram 1.8v - good good. i like low voltage ram.
Acceptable HDD storage
Meh on the screen (19"?)
thats a high rating, considering your screen and video card. You got some good stuff.
What exactly is wrong with the mainboard? Something wrong with running a PII 940 on an amd 770/ SB600 chipset
Oh and 9.5/10 for Mussels
That's what is so great about PC's and PC gaming...you can always upgrade. The other night Newegg received another shipment of Sapphire Toxic 4890's and I caught it before they were gone (lasted about 20 minutes)...but I didn't pull the trigger on one.. ...Just as well, the wife would have killed me since I just upgraded my ASUS 4870 512mb (great card) to a HIS 4890 along with the new Q9550 a little over a month ago.
Nice system Chuck...a few minor points, but still very good... 8.5/10....
@dieselcat18: for a first build, very solid.
Swap out that cooler for something that can get that Q9550 to 4ghz!
Hard not to give you a 10/10 awesome rig, can't really get much better than that!
@shadowfold: Very good gaming rig. Everything you could throw at it, it'll play!
10's all around man.
10/10 for Cold Storm
