As GTA IV is right around the corner, the time to upgrade and a new era of massive e-penises has arrived. Thus I built a new, very capable beast!

Right so, here we go:

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 4.0GHz (overclocked)
Thermaltake Blue Orb PC Cooler
Asus P5Q3 Deluxe/Wifi-ap
2x2GB (4096MB) DDR3 1600MHz Corsair RAM
eVGA GTX 260 Core 216 896MB DDR3 @ GTX 280 speeds (overclocked)
Corsair 750W Power Supply
2x 500GB Western Digital SATA2 Harddisk drives
Antec Performance One P182 Black Case
LG Blu-ray diskdrive & Samsung DVD-Drive

& a nice 24" Samsung Syncmaster 245B+ to look at.

Post yours! Don't let my specs scare you. wink.gif

wrong topic and touchy subject. in some notebooks it is possible to upgrade the graphics card but as a rule of thumb no. laptops are never well designed so you cant just go buy something, google the laptop find the specs and look around to see if anyone else has tried this or sells a graphics card for it.

odds are though that its intergrated or onboard if thats the case then no nothign u can do. i believe they sell expansion slots for graphics accelaration but im not sure on the cost or even the name off hand.

Not in terms of value for money, but they are if you want to waste all your money on something that will depreciate faster than you could set the money on fire.

& I'll be running the Windows 7 rc

Yep, spent a shitload. I didn't when I built my last/current pc and now I'm regretting it. That's just the base setup, gonna add standard hard drives and other parts. Still up in the air on a video card, I'll keep y'all posted.

I put this one together around the end of last year.

Antec Sonata Plus 550 Black/ Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower with 550W Power Supply
ASUS 20X DVDĪR DVD Burner
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit
SAMSUNG Spinpoint 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive
Intel LGA 775 Intel G35 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 Wolfdale 2.66GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core
Kingston HyperX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)

Not very impressive in terms of specs. That's because I designed it to be as quiet as possible. I was tired of my gaming rigs sounding like jet engines. Plus I don't play games much anymore.

There are a lot of resources to go to when looking for high powered gaming components. It's a lot more difficult trying to find the most silent components on the market. Thanks to silentpcreview.com I was able to find everything I was looking for. I definitely met my goal.
