    Default Rate it, bitch.

    As I've said before I'll buy a new computer the 25th. This is will I'll (probably) buy... Rate it, bitches! 1-10!

    Case: Cooler Master Mystique 631, Black Aluminium (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=318687)

    Power supply: Corsair Powersupply 750W Black,ATX/EPS, 140mm Fan, 8xSATA, SLI (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=340678)

    Motherboard: Asus P5E, X38, Socket-775, DDR2, ATX, Firewire, GbLAN, 2xPCI-Ex(2.0)x16 (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=340951)

    Processor: Intel Core™ 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz, Socket LGA775, 6MB, 1333Mhz BOXED m/fan (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=344772)

    Either buying that processor or Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz Socket LGA775, 8MB, BOXED w/fan (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=330169)

    Memory: Corsair TWIN2X 6400 DDR2, 4096MB CL5, Kit w/two matched
    CM2X2048-6400 Dimm's (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=346193)

    Hard drive: Western Digital Caviar GP 750GB SATA2 16MB IntelliPower (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=340273)

    Graphic card: XFX GeForce 9800GTX 675M 512MB GDDR3, PCI-Express 2.0, 2xDVI-I/HDCP (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=348308)

    Keyboard: Logitech G11 gaming tangentbord USB (http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=338620&CKS=PCW)

    Strangely enough the Swedish site has that keyboard but not the English.

    Mouse: Logitech G5 Laser Mouse 2007 (http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=333430)

    Screen: Samsung 22" LCD Syncmaster 226BW TCO99 svart, 1680x1050, 2ms, VGA/DVI, 1000:1 ) (http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=331838&CKS=PCW)

    Couldn't find this one on the English site either. Anyway. Thinking about this one or http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=342254 or http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=347570

    Software: I cannot decide. I want to use DX10 which (officially) only can be used for Vista BUT as we can see http://www.techmixer.com/download-di...or-windows-xp/ <--- here people are starting to convert Dx 10 for XP.
    I also want to use all my RAM and from what I've heard there is no XP version out there that can use it all. However, Vista has loads of problems so I cannot decide.

    Price: 14425 Swedish Kronor (excluded the software). About 2404 dollars for you Americans.

    Don't get a 9800GTX, especially not for that gargantuan price. Get a HD4850 or HD4870.

    The HD4850 is much cheaper and roughly the same speed as the 9800GTX. Link: http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=357345


    The HD4870 is also cheaper and quite a bit faster than the 9800GTX. Link: http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=355992


    XP 64-bit can use 4GB of RAM (A lot more even). I love XP 64-bit, I've been using it for 2 years now.

    I tried it once, had some problems getting games to run.

    Sadly that card isn't on the list. http://www.komplett.se/k/config.aspx...SystemId=10336 <--- Go down to "Grafikkort".

    That's bullshit. It will fit no problem. There's no reason why it wouldn't be on that list.

    Build your own system, that way you can actually get what you want.

    All 64-bit operating systems can use a ton of RAM. I forgot the exact amount, but I believe it's somewhere around 128GB.

    First of all I don't know shit about assembling a computer. BUT I'm going to 2 different local computer stores and hear with 'em how much cheaper/expensive they are.Guess I can ask them about that card. however, I've always had a Geforce

    So adding another 4gb would kick ass?
    Fuck you.

    Look at the higher res benchmarks. As you can see, getting a 9800GTX when you can get a cheaper HD4870 with DX10.1 support is just silly. The HD4870 beats it in pretty much every benchmark. It's 50% faster in WiC at 1600x1200!

    Assembling a computer is really easy. A child can do it.. In fact, I built my first computer when I was 11.

    That would be unnecessary. 4GB is more than enough for now.

    Yeah, it really isn't difficult, I've been building computers with my Dad since I turned 10 and it's really simple whether you follow the directions or not you can pretty much figure it out...

    Your case sucks.

    Antec 1200 is win. http://metku.net/index.html?path=rev...1200/index_eng

    Sigma makes awesome server towers. But you won't be able to find them unless your in the IT business. their consumer towers are meh and still as hard to find.

    As I hear the curses and growls of my enemies I cant help but smile, they actually thought I'd fight fair.

    I had plans on buying the Antec 900 but then I read that it was noisy as fuck.
