    Default Drew... err Corri's Build

    As Some of you know I Ordered a new System.
    I just got word that it is being processed.
    I think it would be cool to Log each stage of the build, and post pictures of the sea of boxes that will soon take over my house.
    The Load out for this system
    Xion 2 Black Case
    2 EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Super Clocked 896MB Video
    1 Seagate 500GB Serial ATA
    1 Seagate 1.5TB Serial ATA
    VDRW 20X SATA w/Lightscribe
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66 (Bundled... will be upgraded)
    EVGA nforce 780i SLI Socket 775 Motherboard
    2 OCZ SLI 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz ( I downgraded... just to save a few bucks)
    Logitech G5 Black/Blue Laser Mouse
    Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
    Zboard USB Keyboard

    Update Soon.

    Do yourself a favor and make you're first "upgrade" to a Core 2 Extreme. i7 isn't worth it yet.

    Well then wuts all this then about i7.

    Crap, well, I'll Get i7 just for the lols, once it becomes better, 2 the extreme will be Pentium 4 in comparison.

    The i7 is great if you're planning on running a database or web server, otherwise not so much.

    Also, I'm partial to ATI cards this generation. I feel they will have more longevity. Games are shifting away from texture heavy shaders to math heavy ones, and ATI has a massive advantage there. Just look at any benchmark for GRID. This is the future of how games will perform, especially console ports which are quite texture bandwidth limited.

    However, for most current games, it's a tossup.

    I would also be hesitant on buying the superclocked version, because 90% of the time you can OC a regular card to the same speed anyways.

    Bah I'll wait for core i7 to go back up to pwnage, I'm sure it will kick some ass soon with more gaming friendliness, or maybe it will get socket 940'd. Then I'm off to the other new socket.
