My last system is working perfectly. It's a few
years old, but really fast and quiet. Runs cool.
Dual boots XP Pro - Win7 / 64
Intel Core2 Duo .. early so not a failed quad
Gigabyte mobo .. solid state caps
Truepower 750 watts
Nvidia gtx 275
4 gigs ram
2 hard drives 500 gig each .. hitachi
Antec 900 case
Asus lcd 24 inch wide .. nice
No problem in any games .. Crysis is fast.
Reason I'm starting a new box is ?? Damned if I know. I'm trying
to figure out what is new and what I would like to try to
optimize next. I don't really see anything in a new technology
at all. I'm playing with wireless, but my laptop does that
without a hitch. I can make free phone calls all over the world
( gmail ), but again the laptop is doing it. Any ideas ?
At the moment, I am experimenting with a mobile hotspot and 3
Mbps DSL. The wireless is actually faster, but they won't tolerate
as much usage. That is where I'm headed, if I can afford it,
wireless for speed plus low-end DSL for the heavy lifting.
If you have some spare time, you could learn how to backup your
Windows drive (assuming you don't already, but I guess you do).
It's a whole new world of personal computing.
By the way... Most systems use much less power than you might
think. The popular conception of needing a high wattage power
supply is probably mostly marketing hype. I don't understand why
so-called technically inclined users/reviewers don't understand
that, but oh well.
Good luck and have fun.
