#14

thanks for the comments :slight_smile:

it was all just over Ă‚ÂŁ900, they had some trouble getting the graphics card i ordered in stock but they had 1 club3d card left over same specs but Ă‚ÂŁ20 cheaper so i grabbed that and with the spare Ă‚ÂŁ20 opted for a better hdd, as for noise i havent turned my server (2800+) off whilst this one has been on so i couldnt tell you yet will have a listen tonight :slight_smile:


#15

ME want one too!!! :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

Oh yeah baby…now THAT’S what I call a rig. You lucky, lucky, b*stid :bigsmile:


#17

Somehow I feel my 3DMark numbers were just wrong. Time for a full system format and retest I think. I am going to put it down to poor drivers when they first came out.

Nice case. Nearly went for that one myself.


#18

womble did you install all the updates from m$ and all the mobo chipset drivers etc?


#19

very cool…congrats on the new system Mr. B and good luck tricking it out just the way you like it…

Very nice. I really want to get a dual core system too but I’ll wait a little longer, as I want hardware virtualization :slight_smile:

Still… very very nice. I like those PSUs that have sockets for pluggin in cables. Keeps everything as neat as possible. And massive copper coolers are very nice too :slight_smile:
