    My system changes...

    Made some system changes… Well I am sick of the mails asking me what I run so I thought I would post.

    I moved to a Shuttle about 2 years ago at launch of the SB61G2 and loaded it up with 3.0GHz EE etc - but had to move to a 875 system when I b0rk3d the bios, this of course was loaded up reasonably well then I have migrated through the following:

    Some of the system changes have lasted days, some longer….

    1. Shuttle SB75G2 Loaded with a 3.0Ghz Extreme Edition, 1GB Ram, and 2 hard drives, 1 * 120, 1 * 160GB, Pioneer DVD105 RW, ATi 9800XT Graphics Card

    2. The above Shuttle with a Raserator watercooler

    3. SB81P with 3.4GHz Extreme Edition, 1GB Ram, Dual 250GB HDDs, 1 * 120GB HDD, Pioneer DVD105 RW, NVIDIA 6800GT PCI-E

    4. Zalman TNN500A, 3800 A64 CPU, 2GB OCZ Ram, X800 Pro, Dual 250GB
    HDDs, 1 * 120GB HDD, Pioneer DVD105 RW

    5. AKASA Eclipse 62, 3800 A64 CPU, 2GB OCZ Ram, X800 Pro, Dual 250GB HDDs, 1 * 120GB HDD, Pioneer DVD105 RW

    6. IWill ZMaxDP, Dual 246 Opterons, 2 GB DDR333 Crucial Ram (Opties wont work with DDR400) Dual 200GB Hard drives, X800 XT PE when it decides to work, ASUS CDRW/DVD Combo Drive, WiFi Module



    I now run systems 5 and 6 as my ‘rigs’ all systems have run with my dual TFTs and Dell keyboard – recently I snagged a Logitech MX1000 to replace my MX700


    Of course there has been minor changes, adding of hard drives and things over time - but this is what I have run in the last year ish.

    In what sense? performance? it does have some edge, however, I only do web, email, outlook, word etc - and a bit of games.

    The new Opteron box will be my main pc and the 3800 is going to become my 'server' since I am sick of copying data all over the place

    Out of rigs 1-5 which would you say performs the best/fastest?
    They all have a good spec, but obviously different technologies.

    I prefer the dual opteron

    closely tied by my SB81P

    Of course - the Zalman was silent.

    the Zalman story is very very funny

    I am not sure just how heavy it is, but he was on the phone several times that day, panting, cos he'd had to pick it up and move it from place to place. Thats passive coling for ya tho...its gotta be heavy...and sexxxxxeh

    The fact that this bloke has enough hardware to pile up HDD's and CPU's and take a photo of it all JUST TO TAUNT ME is sufficient for me to announce to the world:

    DAVID>>>>>IF I DIDN'T LOVE YOU I'D BE GREEEEEEEN WITH ENVY




    *rumours abound of David tiling his bathroom with cpu's that Tarinder and Ryz have fried*
