    CPU: Core2Duo 6420

    Gfx Card: MSI GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB

    I thought about upgrading this year but will more than likely do it next year after reading the min/max system requirements of some upcoming games.

    Nice rig Omega. I have been debating whether to go with Phenom II for my next build is it a solid performer for you so far? And Kingston rocks for memory that’s all I ever buy and there support is great.

    absoulutly the best AMD since the the 486 dx4 120 – having been a system builder most of my career I’ve always used AMD (except for the K5 era that was a dark time for AMD) for gameing they’ve always preformed well for me and my clients AND most of the time they’re significantly cheaper then thier Intel Counterparts – btw the x 955 BE should be out soon about 3.4 ghz and has been tested to stable OC @ over 7 GHz

    Safe OC up to 7Ghz that is truly amazing. You would think if they could OC it that high why not just step up the chip at the factory and come out with 5-6Ghz chips and get people snatching them up and put pressure on Intel. AMD has to do something innovative because there stock isn’t doing that great and I think the only thing that keeps them really in business is the low prices on their chips and ATI gfx cards.

    But I hope to build another machine for myself for Xmas, that’s only if Santa can still afford it after all the kids 🙂

    I have yet to find a game that slows it down dramatically with everything maxed. It has breezed through Doom3 and Quake4, rFactor racing sim with a full grid, and EVE fleet battles of 50vs50 with all bells and whistles turned on 🙂

    Well I broke down and going to upgrade my PC. It is a small upgrade from what I have now but this way the cycling of computers through the house please everyone. I picked out everything needed for the new PC and you will love the price at the end…

    GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P Motherboard – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6813128387

    Acer X233Hbid Black 23″ 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6824009163

    3.5 Floppy Drive

    SAPPHIRE 100269SR Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6814102830

    Thermaltake V9 Black Edition ATX Computer Gaming Chassis – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6811133074

    OCZ StealthXStream 700w PSU – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6817341019

    AMD Phenom II X4 940 Deneb 3.0GHz – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6819103471

    4GB G.Skill DDR2 1066 Memory – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6820231166

    Samsung 750GB HD – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6822152099

    Even came with a 4GB USB Stick all for the price of $1014 that’s with the shipping. I couldn’t pass up the deal almost every item was on sale. That AMD CPU was under $200 and only processor higher is the 3.2Ghz plus the AMD’s can overclock like mad 🙂 I will upgrade to 8GB memory once I get my hands on Windows 7 and if I have the extra cash come Xmas I might get another Radeon HD 4890 for crossover.

    If I get some of the rebates back (which total over $50) I will have built this pretty good machine for under $1000 not bad at all. Oh I left out the sound because I already have a Soundblaster Fata1ty gamer board and a Lite-On dual layer burning going to use. I’ll take some pics when I get it all, its my birthday this weekend so I bought a present I will use 🙂

    What ya think? Oh NewEgg you rock!

    Pinback did you have another PC before the notebook? What happened to it?

    What should I use to benchmark the system and I will post what I have. I haven’t modified the new system at all and haven’t tweaked anything all stock settings. Actually I think maybe my memory timings might be off but I need to do some reading on how to set them up just right to get the best FSB speed.

    Joystick personally. But I would love to be able to play using my PS3 Bluetooth controller that would be great. I have too look into that to see if there is some hacks available.
