    Default My new machine

    So I broke down and decided it was time for a new machine. I was going to build my own and then I got to looking. I found all the pieces I wanted (all top of the line) and I could build it for about 2500 bucks (this includes water cooling).

    When the day came (that was yesterday) I did even more research and found one already assembled for $1300 that had 95% of the pieces I wanted! SO I ordered it. Here are the specs:

    Asus 775 socket MoBo
    Intel G33 extreme Chipset
    Intel QX6700 CPU (yeah the new quad core one with 8MB cache )
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT video card with 512 MB memory (PCI Express 16x GI)
    4 Gig DDR2 667 memory (the 240 pin DIMM)
    2x 500Gig (1 terrabyte) HDD in RAID 0 Array set up
    HD-DVD drive at 24x
    DVD R-RW at 4x to 52x
    19 in 1 card reader
    Windows XP Pro
    Integrated Dolby pro logic 7.1 surround sound audio card
    Integrated 10/100/1000 LAN chipset/speed with 802.11b/g Wireless
    6 USB 2.0 high speed ports
    2 PS/2 ports
    1 DVI and 1 HDMI port
    S-Video out (on Graphicx card) a 1 S video with TV tuner card
    6 rear audio out ports
    2 front audio out ports
    2 SP/DIF ports
    2 firewire IEEE ports
    infrared Receiver and remote control


    The only thing I don't like is proprietary HD set up and no liquid cooling. I will have to get heat transfer shields for the memory as well, but those are cheap. It is fast, nimble and Dir-X 10.1 ready.

    Sweet!

    Nice one
    Congrats !

    I also got one in October last year :

    Quad Core Q6600 2.4GHz (OC @ 3.6GHz)
    MSi p35 Platinum Combo
    4 x 1GB Ram 800
    3 x 250 GB HDD 7200rpm
    CM Aquagate S1 Liquid Cooler
    20x Liton DVD re-writer
    MSi 7600 GT (OC Edition) DDR3
    bla bla
    CM Stacker 830 Evo

    Its was way above $2500 because I live in India and here we pay 100% duty on imported stuff Thats why i had to go for 7600 GT which also came for $300 at that time

    Anyways, soon i'll be getting the 8800 GTX when the 9 series comes out (less price)
