Pams New PC! :D
« on: February 17, 2009, 02:20:07 PM »
Hey Guys!
i just got my new computer yesterday, and I want to tell the world all about it!
although I'm not incredibly technically minded - I am starting to get a hang of it and understand the basics of what it is   ;)
(yes, i realise he is only a dual core, not too happy with quad cores just yet :P go ahead and call me crazy  :P but a good dual core is better than a middle of the range quad in my opinion  :-[ and plus, I didn't really have much money to spend.)

Heres whats in my beast:

Mother Board:
Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R

Intel CPU:
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400/ 3.00GHz/ 6MB Cache/ 1333FSB/ LGA775
 
Desktop Memory:
Corsair DDR2 2GB PC-6400/800 (2x XMS2 1GB) TWIN2X2048-6400C4 Ram

Graphics Card:
Nvidia GeForce 9800GT

Desktop Hard Drives:
Seagate Barracuda ES2 1TB 7200RPM 32 MB SATA 2Gbs (enterprise edition2)

Monitor:
Benq 22" T2200HD BLACK LCD - 5MS / WUXGA 1920x1080 / D-SUB / DVI
 
Keyboard:
Logitech Newtouch 200 USB Keyboard
 
Mouse:
Razer Lachesis Precision 3G Blue Laser Mouse
 
Cases (PSU included):
Thermaltake Wing RS-101 Black/Silver Midi Tower Case (430W)

Operating System:
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 64-Bit DVD - OEM


I ordered it through Centre Com with their online custom PC quoter  ;)


I havn't thought up a name for him just yet.... any ideas  :P?

Haha, your computer sounds like an almost exact replica of mine!
Except that I use a different keyboard and mouse and have upgraded ram, and dont have an evil operating system. And those little awesome differences that mean mines better  :P
Yeah can't call him Phoebe, its taken by my beautiful baby, and that would just be wrong, his a boy.
Perhaps Gerald, I feel like i'm getting a Gerald vibe, lol.

Thats quite a pretty good build you got there. I'd say it's a perfect choice of parts for what it's made for.

In my opinion a quad is better than a dual core even if it's slow because you can overclock and squeeze every ounce of performance juice out of it , don't forget improved multitasking, plus there really cheap quads available If you know where to look.
Thought about rendering ?  the more cores the better I reckon :) !.

2gb of RAM for 64bit vista ? I'd up that to 4 later on cause RAMs gotten surprisingly cheap really quick and Maya can sometimes suck alot of memory.

9800GT is ok , just don't expect Crysis to like it with everything cranked at that 1080p of your monitor,but i bet you don't like gaming too much so good choice. 

You got a Razer mouse!!! I think it's the best brand, they look pretty darn sexy as well. I've thought of getting myself a boomslang one day so i can rack up more frags online.

I'd overclock that E8400 but 3.00Ghz is fast enough.

Overall great selection , I think you should give it a pedestrian name like Sally or Chewbacca the 15th.
