At last i've gotten round to finishing my new PC setup.





Here's the specs:

Antec 900 Case.

Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R Motherboard. (Good for over-clocking)

Intel i7 930 2.8Ghz.

I have an enclosed water cooler for my CPU, but haven't installed it yet!

Corsair TX Series 650W Modular PSU

OCZ Gold DDR3 12GB (3x4GB) 1333MHz Triple Channel Memory.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 1280MB GDDR5 Graphics Card w/cooler fan.

1TB Western Digital SATA II Hard Drive.

Sony DVD Writer/Rewriter Drive

Windows 7 Ultimate.


I also have dual monitors, but i haven't set up eyefinity yet, or whatever it's called on Nvidia.

Now i can start getting down to business with my 3D Games Artwork using the Unreal Development kit, and the Crysis 3 engine without any slowdown.


To be honest, the DDR3 Ram cost the most. 12GB of decent RAM these days costs almost 300 quid!

I've always wanted a setup like you have but as always I'm too broke to buy stuff like that. I have to say that Case looks phenominal. Looking good DuPz.
DuPz0r
Thanks buddy. Yeah i had a little help from the Father in law. He is a computer enthusiast and is always making new set-ups/rigs. So he helped me save money whilst still getting good quality components.

I'll build a computer one day. When I'm not bumming OS X.

Are you going to put another terabyte on it? Seems like a terabyte doesn't last a week (read: year) anymore ...

Most likely yeah, when i run out that is. But with Animation and modelling, it'll run out pretty quick tbh. I have a 500gb External HDD plugged in ontop iff you notice in the pic aswell.

Totally failed at congratulating you on the beast .. Apologies for that. It is supersexy. Indeed I do notice, wondered what it was.

I can't wait to go to Uni. Everyone seems to have money. My brothers been to Florida twice and bought loads of stuff. His fiancee has done the same. You've built a new epic PC and I know others who have bought loads of stuff.
DuPz0r
The best part about this case is the giant fan on top above the motherboard that sucks the hot air out. That's the main reason i got it. Well as well as the two front fans the blow air in, the side fan which also blows in and the back fan which sucks it out. XD.png.

My i7 stays at around 44 degrees average which isnt too bad as these CPU's can get extreamly hot!

I managed to hook my two monitors together as one screen, but one is only 15" lmao. Still, it doesn't look that bad, as i only need the other one for dragging up photo reference and what not.

Here is how photoshop looks stretched across them both:





Not bad aye?
Massacre
Fuck. I need to get a better case. I want pretty lights.
asthenia
You need 3 24inch screens with low profile edges. Steal them.

I could play Fallout on the middle screens and watch two different kinds of porn on the others... WANT.

Trust me, if i had any money left, i would!
Massacre
It would be hard to not get caught watching porn on those screens. The guy across the street could see that shit.

Luckily, I tend to look at porn in public anyway, be it an internet cafe or just while waiting at the bus stop.

That is intense shit. I need a new computer so fuckin bad. Try doing video editing with 512 mb of ram.

512 RAM that sucks. What were you using? Premier Pro? Fusion? You need at least 2GB to even run that shit properly don't you...?
DiO
Premier CS4. Tried getting CS5 but it didn't let me install it cause I didn't meet minimum requirements. I edit without a preview. Then when done scroll through the vid as it play slower than hell and I try an imagine what it looks like in real time. Then I have to render to see how it actually turned out. Its pretty hurtin. Especially since I'm getting fancier with the editing. Just making more stupid skate 3 montages but its fun as fuck. And what the point in doing something cool in that game if no one is going to see it? On the EA forums there is a pretty dam big community that makes them.



DuPz0r
Sweet, i had to do a project which introduced me to using Premier pro, editing and sound effects etc. What are you doing multimedia?
DiO
Im going into advertising so its going to cover a lot of different programs.
DuPz0r
That's pretty sick! If i make some cool game environments, i might have to ask you to turn them into a decent trailer for me!
asthenia
You even look less metal in-game.
DuPz0r
I just got my new 4x4gb(16gb)of ddr3 dual channel memory.

I can just about run Sony Vegas Pro on 1GB, it can be very frustrating though.

DDR2, I use a netbook lol, my desktop is even more fail though.
DuPz0r
Damn. Video editing is a pretty power hungry thing. I'm guessing it's a slow process for you. Choppy until rendered! lol
