At last, I have all the pieces for my new computer. Well, not all, I am still missing the 1200 W PSU that should be here tomorrow. For anyone interested, this is going to be my new comp:

-Case: Antec Twelve Hundred (I wanted a big case with good airflow, I guess that one 20cm fan plus five 12cm fans will do Very Happy)
-CPU: Intel Core i7 950 (3.06 GHz)
-Mobo: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2
-Memory: Patriot Viper 6 Gigs DDR3 Kit (3 x 2GB) (PC3-12800, 1600MHz) I'll use them in Triple Channel
-Graphics Card: Zotac Geforce GTX295 (1792 MB of GDDR3 memory) (This thing is big as hell, reminds me of old IBM XT cards in size Very Happy)
-HD: Seagate Barracuda (1 TB, SATA)
-DVD Reader: some LG one (SATA)
-DVD Writer: another LG one Razz (SATA as well)
-Mouse: Logitech G9 (laser mouse)
-Keyboard: some generic one (Razz)

For the OS I plan on installing Windows 7 Professional x64

So in short I should be back to playing INF again (I hope I won't have any trouble running INF under windows 7) Wink

I am attaching some photos just in case someone is interested (I still haven't assembled anything, just inserted the CPU in its socket)


Height: 58.2 cm<br />Width: 21.3 cm<br />Depth: 51.3 cm Has 2 DVIs, but I miss an HDMI connection :(

Sounds bad, aside from the keyboard Smile

No looks pretty cool actually. May I ask how much it cost you, if it isn't too much indiscretion?

Nice, mid. I still need a new comp aswell, though right now a new cell phone is more in need.

Oh, and good to have you back. Very Happy

Not bad. Only I am not at all a fan of overclocked memory ...

Yeah, those things are huge. They also have a TDP of 300W. You can fry eggs on it.

Oh, I didn't see someone replied to this topic Razz

To UndeadLord: it cost me around 1500 euros.

Windows 7 is working great. Being Windows, it's a bit in the hungry side for memory (I am using around 20% with no applications loaded. Still, I haven't gotten it using more than around 35%). The CPU usage remains quite low as well. Now, I want to get some new games to see how it fares (ArmA 2, maybe? Razz)

My only problem is that INF seems to run a bit too fast. This is more noticeable when there are no other players around me. I guess the old UT engine wasn't thought for nowadays computers Wink

Inf running fast can be cured easily - there's a thread about running UT on latest hardware. Basically you want to run Inf/UT on one core and at constant processor speed.
