Hard to keep up... I havent put one together in a few months...

Also havent even messed with a hexcore yet... that'll be the next one I build. I wanna do a hexcore with 32 GB ram for our next workstation to see how it compares to our current setups.

As a side note, how does win7 home compare to pro?

lol i don't have it yet. i just now ordered it.


i have little experience with windows 7 so far. be my first win7 machine.

there are 8 core intels out too, at like 2k a processor

the hexcores are still minimum 500$ a processor

i'd much rather have pro. i may track down an upgrade deal sometime in the future. first upgrade will be a 2tb HD

I mostly like win7, theres a few little nitpicky things that are annoying... I used XP so long I got used to it.

yeah i'm currently running xp pro on a 2.4 ghz dual core amd with an overclocked gt 240...so this thing is gonna be a huge step up. i may start dabbling in music production again.

win 7 is....better than vista. way better than vista. so i think i'll be ok with it. windows 8 is gonna be garbage though.

which is why steam is making a push for linux. and if i can play all of my games on linux, i'll convert

the mobo is not great

current rig is going into the living room on the 42" plasma as a media server/retro gaming with emus and a 360 controller

Yeah Vista sucked bad... Win7 is great with a few minor exceptions... Win8 looks like it has the potential to really suck... idk why MS has the tendency to do that kind of thing with every other version.

I meant to ask psc, how did u find this rig, just looking thru newegg or was it a special?
