You've got too much time on your hands, Kate!

Better get well soon, or your plastic will be taking a pasting...

  Kate B 15:01 08 Apr 05

Thanks for the good wishes, g0slp! I am actually thinking of buying that machine ... the money is available ...!

The sort of machine Halflife 2 was invented for.

See you online Kate.

How much would something like that cost? And what does one look ilke?

250 GiG HGST Sata 7200 RPM ?


I'd want at least 10,000rpm drives if I were buying a machine with the all the other great components in it.

I'm with Bleep on this. I would want a pair of Western Digital Raptors in a RAID 0 array to back up all the other fast bits. I use just such an arrangement now and they are very fast.

Kate, any thoughts on which monitor you will get to compliment your dream? One with a 12ms response time would do.

  Forum Editor 17:12 08 Apr 05

at the traffic lights in that thing Kate - I'll feel all inadequate.

  Kate B 17:14 08 Apr 05

Thanks for the advice on the hard drives, guys - that's something I don't know much about. oldone, I'm thinking a 24" TFT, praps the Apple one as the video card options on that machine won't support the 30" one. I know that only has a 16ms response time but they look absolutely totally gorgeous ...

...if you'll enjoy the benefit of those 2 x 6800 Ultra beauties with a 16ms response time on your monitor.

But amazing PC...makes my arrival on Thursday look a bit pathetic ;)
