If you spent less money on getting spanked you'd have the money for a new rig in no time.

there are trade offs though. my monitor is a standard 19" that can only do 1280X1024. internal upgrades are easy to sneak past the wife but if i come home with a new 22" widescreen then she is going to ask some questions about where i came up with the cash. i would prefer her to not find out about my side job computer repair cash.

:lol2: @ Grim. We all kinda keep it on the hush to a degree. Unless you have a spoiled girl that plays on your machine and says "HEY I want mine to be that fast" , so in that case I must satisfy her. I'm lucky enough to have a girl that wants to wax some chumps. :grin:


For instance, she has a single 8800gts Superclocked in there. Ran fine, but upgraded her to 2 3870X2's, and now she is getting the q9550 (same CPU Shifty is running). I would have to think there is a lot of potential in that chip.

Now I have to get her a new monitor (in time). She is running off of a 17" Dell monitor :shock: That's just a no no in my book.

Yeah, she might not even be seeing shit out of the two 3870x2s right now because I'd imagine with that little Pentium D in there, the system is bottlenecked at the CPU. 2 3870x2s -- that should chew through BF2 like it was nothing, once you get the q9550 in there and OC it up a bit that thing should be plenty fast, and no bottlenecks.

Or you could go the other way on the monitor.

http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=205467075&adid=17653&dcaid=17653

Westinghouse LVM-37W3SE 37" 1080p HDTV Ready LCD 1-HDMI / 2-DVI-HDCP - Black -1 year Direct Warranty. $569.

I know I saw a decent sale on a Samsung 22" recently but can't find it.

Yes sir. That's the plan, drop the chip, get rid of the bottlenecks, and OC her a bit. When I'm done she is going to be like "did you put my PC on steroids" LMAO She will be throwing up numbers close to me.


Ohhow I love building and tweaking machines.

well keep an eye on DX11 that is in development. supposedly it finally brings multithreading to dirext X API so multicore CPU's and Dual video GPU's will be a massive improvement to games. plus it will be backwards compatible so you wont HAVE to go get a DX11 card as a DX 10 will be able to do it ( at least NVidia so far states it will)
