  1. No, I do not view Wendel as a god. I do not worship him. I do however respect the fact that he worked hard and it paid off. And now, as age sets in, his skills are decreasing, and gamers are stepping up to the plate.

    Yea, 24 years old! Man talk about over the hill. LOL.


  2. If you play a lot of DirectX games, ATI chipsets tend to be better for those, while nVidia chipsets are faster in OpenGL. These days the match is rather close when it comes between either maker's high-end cards, it's more of a personal opinion.

    The X1800 series ATi cards with cat 5.11 drivers or later are faster than Nvidia in OpenGL applications.


  3. Is there a Demo availabel? either that, I sure wish that a GOOD FREIND would loan me the game.......Tee-Hee :closedeyes:

    Yes, there is a single and multi player demo, atleast there was before the game came out.


  4. The Jaton card is a 6200TC. TC stands for Turbo Cache, which despite its name is anything but turbo. It shares your memory with your system ram creating a horrible bottleneck and killing performance. Stay AWAY from the 6200TC models.


  5. If you plan on overclocking I would ditch the Biostar. For overclocking look at DFI and then MSI in that order. If you want a simple, cost effective stable board (not that the other two aren't stable either) look at a Gigabyte.

     

    I have also never been a fan of Corsair ram, but that isn't a huge issue, especially if you don't plan on OCing.

     

    The rest of the parts look great, I built a PC for a friend using that CPU, PSU and video card. It runs great for him.


  6. You can find an OEM X1800XT for $465. Believe me, I bought one for that price. That is a significant savings. Also, I popped the stock cooler off and put a Maze 4 on it the second I got it, so much for any warranty, so who cares if it isn't retail.


  7. I honestly don't know if you can fit a dual 120mm radiator on the top of your case. If you can, go for it.

     

    I prefer to put the radiator at the bottom front of the case as you have better options for getting cool air to pass through it and you can maintain standard ATX airflow for you entire case. It is also very hard to bleed the air out of your radiator when it is at the top of your case.

     

    I advise that you use a T-line rather than a resevior as I have yet to see a resevior that doesn't end up cracking and leaking eventually.

     

    For a pump you should use the Laing D5 pump. It has been rebranded as both the Swiftech MCP655 and the Danger Den D5.
