Unfortunately, I only have one output on my card, but come November, that will change. Going to build me a new gaming comp.
Jeez you must have tons of time on your hands.
1SilentShadow1Jeez you must have tons of time on your hands.
I do lately. My job has been cutting hours, and pretty bad too. I only got 12 hours in the past 2 weeks!! That sucks!! That doen't even pay for my gas for the hour trip each way going back and forth to college. But anyway... I also have about 3 hours in between classes, so I have plenty of time to goof off, play AAO, or build me a new comp (when i get the money). Not too worried about though. Wife about to get a 10G Social Security backpay check, so a gaming comp is on the drawing board.
Got any ideas for a new comp? Post them.
Get a pentium 4 processor with hyper-threading if you can afford it. Also make sure that you have a great, I mean GREAT video card. What I really mean is a "state-of-the-art" video card with a lot of video memory. With those 2 alone, it greatly improves gaming performance.
Shooting for the P4 3.2, 1 GB DDR400, 120GB HDD, good DVD drive, good and fast CD-RW, Thermaltake Xaser III case (no expections, unless I find one better), dunno about motherboard yet, need some more info on that to make a decision, need one that can be easily overclocked, and video card wise, probably a NVidia FX 5900 if I can afford it, but if not, a FX 5600 at least, and hopefully a 5.1 TurtleBeach sound card, or a SB Audigy 2. Hope to upgrade to a 17" LCD flatpanel as well. Who knows. I'll have about $1500 to make a gaming system.
Just for fun, see what you can build for $1500 without software.
Wouldn't be a bad pc with just those alone. I would go with the audigy 2 because it works with EAX sound in aa. I would recommend running windows 2000 as for your os because it's really stable.
I'm currently running XP Pro and have never had any problems with it. I had stability issues with Windows 2000, but never have with XP Pro.
