    Wow, I really like color and texture of that orange wall. Seriously, is it a concrete, stucco, or the paint itself that gives it that texture. Really noticable in the first pic. BTW , nice machine too.

    eh, I don't want to bother downloading 3dmark06. Surely there are others who've already benchmarked here in the guru forums. I use to do that benchmarking like crazy but not now, its got to be somewhere around 13-14000 points.

    All I care for is the fact that I can play with all HIGH settings at my highest res with AA 8xQ, AF 16, supersampling, etc and its all fluid at a solid 60FPS (vsinc on due to LCD).

    This has been something I've been wondering about, that is the RAM utilized in SLI. I've heard that even though there's physically, say, 640MB in my case it doesn't mean it'll use it like 640MB.. Is this correct?

    But what about Split-Screen-Rendering wouldn't that effectively be 640MB?

    I need to look up the difference in nforce SLI rendings.

    No, it will stay 320mb in every situation. Nice rig man. Really looks good and all but why 2 8800gts320's? With that money you could have bought a single 8800gtx which would give you better performance @ high resolutions

    Yeah I only have a 19''W LCD and 320MB will be plenty for that. I had a 22'' before and its a little to goddy if you ask me. I really wanted a setup that would scream AA,AF and FPS.

    As for the 74GB, I have BF2142, BF2, BF2SF, Dark Messiah, HL2, Supreme Commander in stalled and not using half the memory. Honestly how many games can you play??? Anyways, the ones I don't play I wont install; keep it lean! Lastly is ONLY a gaming computer, my laptop (for example) is what I'm typing this on right now; and my laptop is for my schooling.

    It's not just games you have to worry about,what about patches,demos,videos etc not to metion that if you want vista it takes up to 20+ gigs of HDD space alone.

    I filled up my old HDD (160 gigs) really easily so 74 gigs is really small no matter what you do,HDD prices are really low so get some more space.

    I have a 500 gig HDD and i won't have to worry for a good longwhile.

    Trust me you'll thank me for this later.

    How did you get a E6600 to 3.5ghz with a Zalman CNPS9500?
    Nice job :)

    I love that case.

    Don't get me wrong, I have another computer, my wifes, which I store all that stuff on with 160GB of storage dedicated to storage of that stuff.... No storage will be on this computer. Oh and fk Vista. :p . I had it on my laptop and it sucks for gaming, IMO. As soon as installed XP Pro on my laptop my FPS went up at least by 10 which is a lot for a lappy. XP Pro is still prefered.

    I'd like to know how to get to 3.5Ghz on CNPS9500. I have mine at 1.4v @ 3.15Ghz I think I could do a little more though. My load temps are 37C though, real good. :)

    When I had my swiftech cooling system, I could do 3.4 on 1.4v.
