  1. Ok heres my delema. I have $500 to bestbuy and ~$1000 cash. the 74g raptors are ~$120 at bb, and the only things close to the eggs price there is mice, and vid cards. Do I get two raptors for raid 0 and get a 7900 gs and razor mouse or get two or more 80 gig hitachi and pay for those out of my own pockets saving the rest of the $500 for something else?
  2. lol if only we had a search function lol
  3. What gives you the best cooling/ocing performance?
  4. @David, Thanks for the article, I had no clue that solid state disks could have wear on them.
  5. Yes transfer rates have progressed from around ata/33 to sata 3gb/s but those are only burst rates. The only drives capable of using all their bandwith I have seen are raptors and iRam, both only at sata I 1.5 Gb/s. Data storage has increased but unless it is for comerical reasons I see no way someone could fill a 750gb HD. And now raid is being used to increase speed, but even that has a limit. Much like dual and quad core cpus and dual core gpus. Has the speed of HDS hit the same wall as cpus or is there just little develpoment in the field?
  6. looked at the m-audio delta, looks good but I need analog 5.1, coax, or optical input. I have a logitech 5.1 set with dts 96/24 and dolby digital pro logic II so I want to make use of that.
  7. Yes I am going to oc, till my balls glow green I want to water cool and throw in a peliter if I have some extra cash. what is the best 2x1gb and 2x512mb ram for the infinity?
  8. ok thanks praz. How are Auzentech sound cards? I am an audiophile before a gamer but have been put off due to some bad reviews on the egg
  9. So thanks to christmas, and convient timing I am doing a fresh build. I have $500 to bestbuy that I am going to use in conjunction with other funds which are unlimited but I want to keep at a minimum (say 1500). As some have seen I have a full tower case to build in but is at this time a rack so I need a case also. The 200 gig HD I have will be a data drive and the psu... well will be the main psu. Nothing can be pulled from my current rig as it is going to be wiped and given to my sister. This is a gaming/rendering/word processing rig but I do not need a top of the line vid card but something reliable. I wanted to use the RD600 but it seems to have been delayed even more. Any suggestions?
  10. I may have caught what you have. I was having constant drive access until I shut down svchost and now I am getting windows file protection warnings.
  11. I would just like to thank everyone here at the street. When I came here almost 11 months ago I was just looking to make the new toaster, er coffee maker. Thanks to that I have learned what it takes to make it in the graphic design world. Even when that was over I still stayed, not to create but to learn. And so 1,114 posts later I am still learning. I feel like I know high performance machines inside and out, though I have never worked on one myself. The kind people at mushkin have helped me toward that goal and I am almost there, something I would have given up on long ago. So to all the admins, mods, and members, Thanks
  12. I have been doing something like you are, except as project for eventual release to the public. For relyability and security I have been told to use linux, and from what I have found Centos is the best free linux os. I would host it yourself to save cost and make it easy to work with the site.
  13. I am randomly getting icons replaced with peoples avatars and avatars replaced with icons.
