Do I detect an idiot here??? J/K... I had to say it!
The guys excited. Let em brag.
You did not.
I bet my windows XP smokes ur VISTA
this post broke due to net lag. i dont know what i was saying here, except something about his rig being quite similar to mine.
This is my setup, other than the video card. I've got a 8600gts instead of the 8800. This is to demonstrate what you could have for about $100 less than you spent. Oh, and other than the video, I'm sure I'd "smoke" you (damn, I hte when people brag), as I'm currently OCCT /prime stable at 3.67 ghz......

I guess you don't like fast access rates and like waiting for your games to load.
Do you think any of us really care? I don't.
I hate having a slow machine:shadedshu
my 500GB samsungs match a raptor in most tests, while being a lot cheaper and quieter - they ARE noisy drives.
Please post access times.
I agree m8.
A lot of TPU users have awesome systems, but most dont brag about them! I dont understand why the thread starter is being such a dickhead when that system of his is nowhere near the best on TPU!
He must be young and immature :shadedshu
Raptors are nice an quick and all, but I'm more partial to the Barracudas - very quick read/write/access times, plus a great amount of storage. Still, though, for all out speed - IMO, raptors are the way to go.
decent setup for the price - the only thing I would've recommended doing different is the mobo - for $150 you could've gotten a different ASUS board that doesn't run the P35 chipset and had the i975X instead . . . or an extra $100 could've snagged a mobo using the x38 chipset
anyhow, nice setup - post some benches!
Stop destroying the ones you have.
Calm down.... he is only excited about his computer.
Let him be excited. I am sure at one point in time you thought you had something great and wanted to brag a little too.
I am getting the Dell Ultra Sharp 24" widescreen monitor too soon. Can't wait!
I wouldn't say your new PC is going to be a "beast" but if you got the Core 2 Extreme QX6850 then yeah. I'd say that's a good system .
I use a 5 year old 15" LCD, way better and a lot cheaper.
It shows you don't keep up to date with monitors then
It's way better to watch movies on than your monitor.
u mean porn???
pr0n = porn, some people use pr0n to avoid word censcors or however you spell it.
i've got dual screen. double the PRON!
Might be on par with mine. I wont say yours will smoke mine or that mine will smoke yours because Im not sure. On paper though, mine may look better.
I hear that Dan, I use an 8 year old 18.1" LCD. I love it. I have yet to see a better monitor anywhere, ever. If you think yours is better you are wrong. Seriously though, the monitor I have still sells for $1200+. Its an industrial grade monitor.
