Kickass machine
Saturday, May 29, 2004 | Permalink

I'm set for some serious development and gaming now with this kickass machine I've built.
Not only is it fast, but it's pretty good looking too. And the crown on top of this work of art arrived today. My manager passed an X800pro board to me. Nothing's like getting free highend hardware.
I brought my Radeon 9800pro and two HDs over from Sweden, but the rest of the machine is new. Now the 9800pro had to go though, so it's just the two HDs that aren't new. Well, they are secondary storage anyway since I also bought a new 160GB SATA drive. The final config:

AMD Athlon64 3200+
ASUS K8V deluxe
1GB DDR400 RAM
ATI Radeon X800pro
Maxtor 160GB SATA HD
IBM 120GB IDE HD
Samsung 60GB IDE HD
Pioneer DVR-107D
Nec MultiSync LCD1765 16ms TFT
Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX audio system

Guess I'll be spending some time in front of this machine. And yes, you can probably expect some new demos showing off the capabilities of the X800pro in the not too distant future.

Nice rig. But i just bought 20.1" HP2035 LCD with 16 ms also. That's 0.1 inch bigger than your old CRT And so much better for games & video than my old 18" 25ms Samsung181T.
Anyway, i'll buy x800pro asap. But not as near important for myself as such a great monitor.

davepermen,
the thing was on display in the store, so I could judge it and it looked fine. But it was running a movie, so I couldn't be too sure how good it would look in games, which is a whole different thing than running a game.

bardsong,
naaaah, my beloved 9800pro aint gonna leave me.

So Humus, how quiet is that bad boy, you have said in the past you are a proponent of silent computing?

It's pretty ok, despite being packed with fans. The case came with two chassis fans on the back and one in the middle of the window on left side. But they are very silent, so I let them all run. The power supply has two fans, one on the back and one inside the box, and then you have the CPU fan and GPU fan. But they aren't that noisy either.

Cool, but you better watch it does not silently hover away, before we all get some of those new demos!

PS. Very nice tft and speakers, and everything else for that matter.
