Hrmm, not much activity in this board of late. Anybody out there sporting a shiny new i7 series Intel rig yet? The reviews of it look great.I just built a new machine this summer that I have been real happy with: Quad core Q9450 overclocked to 3.2GHz, Velociraptor hard drive, and 8 gigs of ram (heh, why not?) running on Vista x64.
Honestly Skiii, Most people go to HWTSC vs. here...xSSMBB
Yeah, I'm running a newish rig. I went dual-core instead of quad, and am kind of wishing I had held off for the i7 platform.That said, even though my graphics card is no longer cutting edge (8800GT), I have yet to find a game I can't play. Part of that is that I still just have a 19" monitor, and haven't upgraded to the behemoths yet.I went with Vista x64, 6 gigs of RAM though. No problems, really.If you haven't, check out "Defense Grid", an indy game. Free demo, costs like $20 for the full version. Nice twists on the old RTS model. Good sense of humor, too.
Hey Josh. Yah, I am wishing a little that I held out for the Intel "tock" (or is it "tick?) with the i7. But, DDR3 prices were stoopid high, and I just couldn't wait.Yah, I need to check out Defense Grid, I saw it on steam. I loved the Desktop Tower Defense flash game, and that looks similar.
