Guru3D Rig of the Month - May 2009 -
5. How often do you update/buy a new rig?
I usually tend to buy a new rig every Year, last time I only did an update/upgrade to the PC though. I wanted a core i7 system. So I bought the Asus rampage extreme 2, a I920 that runs at 4 GHz (woohooo) and 3 gig corsair dominator memory with 8-8-8-24 latency.
6. What components are used?
- Coolermaster Cosmos S
- Dark power pro 1000 W
- Asus Rampage Extreme 2
- Core i7 920 clocked at 4 Ghz 24/7
- 2 X Point of View GTX 280 (SLI)
- WD VelociRaptor 300 Gig
- 2 X Samsung spinpoint F1 1 TB
- Thermochill 360 rad
- Laing pump
- Swiftech Apogee GTZ cpu Block
- Tygon and some nasty Red fluid from Feser 1
7. Why ATI or NVIDIA, why Intel/AMD?
I'm afraid I am a bit of a NVIDIA fan, my last ATI card was the Radeon X800XT. I like NVIDIA for their support, always good drivers for current games.
My latest 4 CPUs where Intel all the way. They just rock.
8. Does your PC life up to you expectation ?
I'm very happy with my current rig, it plays all my favorite games at a 2560 x 1600 resolution, maximum settings. So yes I am very pleased !!!!!!!!!!
9. What's the best part of your rig?
MMhhhh, tough question because I like everything. But if I need to choose I would say my GTX 280 SLI setup. I love to have some graphic firepower
10. What sucks and should not have been bought?
Absolutely nothing. I love it just the way it runs now.
11. Did you modify anything ? cases/video cards/other? Did you do it
yourself? Walk us through it.
The only thing I "modded" was the side panel, I replaced the big 200 mm fan
with dust filter with plexiglass behind the mesh panel.
This way there is no dust inside, and I can see my lovely hardware and my airflow is still fine
