The Crysis PC Mod

crysispcmod1-1.jpg

This may not be the weirdest PC mod ever, but it certainly wins in the awesome department. Someone over at the Crysis forums just got a brand spankin’ new gaming machine modeled after the recently released game. The lucky owner, going by “xxstalker24xx,” apparently won this bad boy in a recent competition. Aside from the decked out case, the computer also has these specs:

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 3.00GHz
Albatron GeForce 8800 GTX 768 MB
Corsair TwinCM2X 4X1GB
SB X-Fi
2x Raptor X 150gb ( EXTREMELY FAST )
DVD – ROM

Man, that’s pretty sweet. I was worried for a second that they’d send him a Crysis-mod PC that couldn’t actually run Crysis. Oh, the irony that would have been.

“2x Raptor X 150gb ( EXTREMELY FAST )”

More like ETREMELY OVERATTED or EXTREMELY LOUD. The benefits you get from a Raptor aren’t really noticeable without benchmarking but the drawbacks of high noise and cost are. Anyone thinking of buying a Raptor would be far better off putting the mony towards better RAM, CPU or GPU which will all give noticable improvements.

Coming from a guy who has never owned one in his life no they are not loud the slightly more audible than most. Raptor you can easy see the difference with out benchmarking. The OS boots noticeably quicker, in some game’s when you load the level of the HDD your there quicker than a normal 7200rpm HDD. Plus yes 7200 to 10000 is not really a huge jump but buffer size is double from 8 to 16 which is noticeable.

Nonsense. Raptors are noticeably loader than 7,200rpm drives. Improved boot time is tiny & most half decent 7,200rpm drives already have 16mb caches. Both of my Seagate 320gb drives do and they are 2 years old. In recent benchmarking tests in Custom PC they performed 2 ‘real world’ tests. The 500gb 16mb Samsung Spinpoint T166 HD501LJ was beaten slightly in the Paint Shop image editing test but it actually won the Far Cry loading test beating the 150gb Raptor X, 150gb Raptor and 74gb Raptor by loading the game 3 seconds faster.

The 150gb Raptor X is £126
The 500gb Samsung is £62

You could buy 2 of the Samsung drives, set them up in Raid 0 and you would have better all round performance than the Raptor and 350gb more storage for less money :lol:

If someone is building a new rig, instead of wasting money on a Raptor they would be far better to put it towards better RAM, CPU or GPU because they will improve performance way more.

If you disagree with that you haven’t got a clue what you are talking about.

BTW you are right. I have never owned a Raptor. That’s because they are a waste of money. You dont have to own one to know what they are like. If you do own one your opinion is obviously going to be biased especially when someone correctly points out that only idiots or people with more money than sense buy them.

The thing is free. So that point is moot. Noise is not a factor for everyone. My computer is loud as hell with multifans whirring. Obviously I don’t value my silence, I have a TV on and music on as we speak plus I live near a busy road and my window is open. What more is a little whirring sound?
