Hey there, I was wondering what you guys would say the components should be if someone was going to build a worldbeater PC... hypathetically ofcourse, Im broke. I'd say the specs would be along these lines Vapochill case ASUS SLI mobo FX-55 OC'ed to 2.85GHZ 4GB PC4600 OCZ (2) BFG 6800 ULTRA OC 256MB SoundBlaster platinum DVD-RW drive 2 10k 74GB Raptor drives in RAID 0 400GB dumpdrive T1 internet connection sweet
I agree with most of that, but why not go for the 512mb 6800s? And why did you limit it to just two 10k raptors? Go for 6 raptors in raid 0+1.
I think I would also prefer the Koolance 725-SL for the case. You couldn't OC your system as high as with Vapochill, but the case just looks a hell of a lot nicer than any Vapochill cases I have seen out there.
i'd say: AMD64 3700+ San Diego OCed to 2.9Ghz (i've seen them at 3.0+ but not as stable) 4GB DDR625 PC5000 OCZ EL Platinum DFI nF4 Ram DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR Mobo (2) Seriously overclocked BFG Geforce 6800 Ultra 512MBs (2) WD Raptor 10K 73GB HDDs (2) Seagate Barracuda 400GB 7200.8 HDD DVDRW/CDRW Thermaltake 680W Power supply
id say the same as RemanWarbird, thats a monster of a computer, how much would all that cost?
AMD64 FX OC'd to whatever Vapochill Water and VGA cooling 4GB DDR625 PC5000 OCZ EL Platinum DFI nF4 RAM (Dual Channel) DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR Mobo 2 x Seriously overclocked BFG Geforce 6800 Ultra 512MBs 4 x WD Raptor 10K 73GB SATA HDDs AND 2 x Seagate Barracuda 400GB 7200.8 HDD in RAID 5 (if possible) 2 x DVD+-RW/CD+-RW/DVD-RAM+-RW/Lightscribe (two so you can copy directly to another CD) Big mother powersupply, as stable and powerful as possible. NB. You can get a P4 3.6GHz to 6.1GHz, but you need liquid nitrogen cooling. Plus it's as stable as your mate after an all-night pub session.
Relly, if I add a few morwe things ot my computer then would call it the ultmalte gaming machine that is %45 cheaper than these yet only %20 slower:p AMD64 +3000 oc'ed to 2.75 ghz thermaright Xp90-c heatskink 1gb geil Pc4000 ram 1 BFG 6800Gt with nv silencer 6 Oc'ed to 440/1140 1 60gb maxtor 1 120gb maxtor OCZ modstream 450watt PSU GIGABYTE GA-K8NSC-939 It will cost me about $600 to get that since I have the case, Cd/DVD drives 1 HD and can get the 6800gt and PSU
Eagle Oneid say the same as RemanWarbird, thats a monster of a computer, how much would all that cost?
hmmm... lets see here: $1,678 in Video cards + $338 Processer + $297 in Ram + $196 motherboard + $924 in Hard drives + $180 Power supply + $35 CD/DVDRW drive and your looking at somewhere around $3,648.00 total, before the cost of a case too.
I really like the idea about the 512MB 6800's and the 6 HDD's... I also noticed you guys chose a diff ram, interesting. The San Diage core isnt a bad idea either, I bet it OC's sweet... but a San Diage core 4000+ has 1mb L2 cache.
pffft only 3ghz? that is weak! get something along the lines of 6ghz. now thats a monster (good luck with cooling LOL)
Pethegreat™= AMD64 +3000 oc'ed to 2.75 ghz
Are you using a Venice core to get that much of an overclock?
