well, i don't game really at all, and when i built this system i wanted to keep the cost down, and while you can get a vdo card for <$50, that's still more than i wanted to spend, so i got onboard.gurusan said:You need a graphics card first. onboard video is the devil.
If you have a PCI-Express slot I'm selling my 6800GS. It's a badass card

No... no printers... just XP Pro and 2kPro Virtual PC's. It was fun.IISaiNtII said:i hope some of them nodes were printers
thats still crazy...
i have yet to have a need for over 250gb of space... but that's just me.
how are you only running 30-40 fps with that setup? i have an a64 venice @ 2.8ghz, a single 7800gtx, a 74g raptor, etc etc and i can run highest settings on halflife two / doom3 / cs: source and I get 65+ fps... and that's with the transparency AA and full anisotropic filtering too both at the highest settings, you might wanna check your driversaudioxbliss said:i'll have pics up in a few days... but here's my rig:
AMD Athlon64 3800+
2x 512mb CorsairXMS RAM
ASUS AV8-SLI (I think?...) Motherboard
2x eVGA GeForce 7900GTX 512MB (Kinda long cards, but they work)
Sound Blaster Audigy2
16x Dual Layer 16x DVD+RW (Generic)
ASUS 52x32x52x CD-RW
72GB SATA Hard drive
2x 250GB SATA Hard drive
200GB UATA Hard drive
300GB UATA Hard drive
500GB UATA Hard drive (it's my friend's but his computer broke so i'm holding on to it for him)
ThermalRock "Circle" Aluminum/Steel tower case (it's freagin huge... and it's on top of my desk)
3 case fans, 1 i guess "aftermarket" headsink/fan for my CPU, in the process of cutting a hole in the side of my case so i can get some damn air flow to my hard drives
and for some reason a 3.5" floppy drive
and a broken cathode light.
it runs well... i can get a good 30-40 fps on full settings at 1280x1024 resolution on half-life 2 or cs:source. oddly enough i play starcraft more.
