Here is a pic of the monitor I own at home:
That is pretty much it for now, I will be sure to take some pics of the actual rig very soon, my plans by the end of the year is to get a new ASUS motherboard with PCI Express 16x, a new graphics card, 1gb of the new Corsair XMS2 (240pin) and possibly convert over to all SATA150 Hard drives, and this new badass soundcard with real Dolby Digital Live data streaming to my external reciever.
Ok time to ask you guys for a question or two, I want to get a new graphics card but not sure what I want exactly, I want it to be Nvidia for sure, but not sure what to do here? I am so lost but I want 256mb on it, and it has to perform much better then my current card, I don't think that is going to be to hard to find
, and as for the motherboard I want ASUS for sure and want the chipset to be Nvidia, so what does that leave me with? Should I get SLI just in case plan for the future? Let me know.
Please let me know what you think of my rig and if going for the 2mb cache on the processor was worth it or does it make a difference? You guys think the LGA-775 is a good socket and processor for gaming and such, I am always hearing shit about AMD being better always, but what do you guys think? I sure know I love it and I think thats all that matters, anyway I will rap this up it is getting quite big this post.
Last but not least if you have any questions for me what so ever let me know and I will do my best to answer them for ya!
