Sitting at about 3c above ambient.

I'm going to get a 8800gt probably in a couple weeks, I would strongly suggest anyone thinking about getting a new GPU consider it. Right now it's at about 250usd at newegg and performing right under the GTX.

Okay, so my updated rig is now:

CPU: E6750

Outdated pic, but better than nothing. I lost the HD rails so its just on a piece of foam, which actually made it dead silent.




For Christmas I'll be doing a refresh with the x2 5000+ black edition which I can hopefully get to 3.2ghz and a 8800GT.



EDIT: I Apprently already posted this on the 2nd page

I'm amazed by how many watts consumer graphics cards are drawing now My 4 year old server/3D workstation had a huge 550W supply for its Nvidia Quadro card, hard drives, and dual Xeon MB. I just built a rendering computer that has a now "average" 650W supply....which needs not one, but two 12V supplies for its graphics card alone

On a side note, I'm also finding that the latest and greatest in gaming cards are pretty awful for OpenGL 3D apps like Maya or XSI. I got a 8800GTS for my rendering computer thinking I could also use it as a workstation. Graphics performance for directx games might kick butt, but my now meager Nvidia Quadro FX 1500 laptop cards give me better performance in 3D apps. So soon, I'll be spending the big bucks for a dedicated workstation with dual quad core Xeons and at least a Nvidia Quadro FX 4600....for now, I've got a decent server/rendering computer with 1.5TB of space. It's got a Intel Core 2 duo E8650 3GHZ, 1.3GHZ FSB (made sure to get the fastest RAM as well)......so rendering speeds are pretty good!
post #102 of 2002
not the slightest bit of cutting-edge...

Athlon Xp 2400+
some Shuttle nforce2 mainboard
1,25GB of DDR RAM
Geforce 6600GT

What can I say, it's still good enough for me, even for the occasional gaming. I don't see the need to upgrade anything

All in all you're ram is probably running at somewhere around 333mhz (unless you've overclocked), so the speed of the ram doesn't really matter much...that's even underclocked for DDR800 (PC 6400).

My RAM is OCZ High speed DDR2: 1066MHZ that can be overclocked to 1.3GHZ. But I don't overclock for system stability. Wider bus does help with rendering.

It's ok RAM, however, by default the ratio between your CPU and RAM speeds are 1:1 (C2D like a ratio of 1:1). Currently you are running at 3.0GHz (9x333MHz) so you're ram is running at 333MHz (~DDR667). While at the same time you're timings are most likely really low or can be. Or at the very least if you modded them in the bios you could lower them to probably 4-4-4-12 or possibly quicker.
