2x Quad Core, 2x8800, 4x15kdrives, 2x750GB drives, 4GB Ram...DROOOOOLL

Recommended Posts

Check out the link provided for a list of components, and their European market prices (in Euros).

Some of the hardware is a little more pricey than it would be there in the states... but not by that much... an remember these aren't "Pricegrabber" prices, they're regular "walk into the computer store" prices...

honestly do u need all that space?

unless u run multiple os' i understand that but other then that its pointless

 

Yes.

 

I have 2.1 tB and already ran out of space.

 

Also he is using raid 10. I think that is raid 1+0(don't quote me it's 4 AM), which is raid 1 for redundancy then raid 0 for speed.. so four drives really has the space of two.

And it still probably doesn't perform much better than a $2k machine...

 

It depends what you want to do with it. If you're just looking to go from 100 FPS to 500 FPS, I get your point, but for multithreaded apps, yes, 4 cores kicks butt compared to 2, and 8 cores kick butt compared to 4.

 

 

8 cores and yet only 4gbs of memory? Thats practically blasphemy.

 

I agree. Twenty five THOUSAND dollars and I have DDR1000. I mean, come on, you're paying $25K, get some better goddamn memory. DDR667 isn't bad, but for $25K, it sucks!

 

All that potential ruined by windows vista, an overrated linux distro, and a creative soundcard. :(

Yeah, RAID 10 is 1+0...

 

The memory they used is based on it's reliability, and I think they overclocked it, don't understand enough German to get ALL the facts right but 'm pretty sure...
