Where to from here?

Post by StarBound »

Since sigs change here is my rig specs:
Intel i7 3930k, 8gb DDR3 2000mhz 9-9-9-24 Transcend Axeram in quad channel, Rampage 4 Extreme, Xonar DX, S23A950D 120hz 3D screen, Geforce 580GTX. ...3 SSDs.

For R6000 more I can increase my cpu with 100mhz to the 3960X, a complete and utter waste of money if you felt that the 3930K wasn't already enough. So that is not gonna happen. For the first time in history I am sitting with the best you can buy when your looking at solutions outside of reasonable but not absolutely insane ...yet.

I am waiting on next nvidia card to hit the market. That way I can decide to either slot back in an AMD card (7970) or go with nvidia again (680gtx/780gtx). But thats not enough.

I still don't see the use of another 8gb of ram so pointless in that regard.

The only other thing I can think of is a OCZ revodrive, a 960GB pci-e drive. But go search a price and you'll see the sucker is priced at a mere *cough* R80k. What possible use can I have with a drive that copies at 1.5gb/s when my intel drive can only read at 230mb and write at 80mb while my ocz drive can do up to 500mb read and write.

So where do I go from here?

I think with xbox 720 only having a 6650 gpu in it I can sit back and relax knowing that 10 years from now I will still be running all games at max detail at 60fps minimum.

StarBound? :(

I'm sorry it took me this long to realise, but I think I understand now, and I'm deeply saddened. I see it now: you want to get rid of all your money because you've been infected by an incurable disease and haven't much time before you meet your demise. You want to get the most out of life before you... pass on.

You have always been one of my favourite posters, even back when you first started your courageous crusade against the evils of DRM. I know I called you crazy when you first let us in on your plans to build your nuclear-powered PC, but the truth is I thought it was really cool and I enjoy watching you edge ever nearer toward that goal. I've been rooting for you all along.

Don't give up hope, you're a fighter, I know this, and so does SercuRom.

Hehe.

The worst part of it all, telkom is my PCs weakness. See it can run anything on earth ...I wonder if I can host a dedicated Diablo 3 server on it while playing.

I'm never going back to HDD. But Revodrives are not within my price range unless I start getting assassins pay or get Julius job. The one upgrade I am looking at this year is my graphics card still. And it will be either a MSI twinforzer or a Gigabyte windforce of the fastest single gpu card.
