PostSubject: Please review can call out any BAD ideas.   April 1st 2010, 22:46

It is time for newguy to leave the dark ages.

Feel free to call me a dumbass for the products I am about to list, as long as you can suggest a better idea, but I am fairly certain that it is solid. I will admit that I only have a very basic knowledge about this shit.
The time to finally buy/build will depend on how much I can get the 975 bloomfield to drop since the first gulftown was recently released. I am not paying that much for a cpu the size of my cock.

CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115212
+ This heatsink
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118054

MOBO:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131614

CASE:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129043
+ These fans (2)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835209011

POWER-SUPPLY:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194039

HDD:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533

RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145224
(unless the 4 gb stick by gskill is worth the hype, at same time that shit is fucking expensive)

BluRay-RW/CD-RW/Lightscribe:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136181

VIDEO:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130549
(the most 'iffy' fucking thing ever)

I already have speakers, kb, mouse, etc.
I may get a sound card down-the-road but the on-board audio will be a stop-gap solution for now.

If something I am looking to buy is a dumb idea please try not to be too harsh.

OK, serious this time.
Pick another monitor and another processor. Something not so expensive. Take the money you save and spend it on faster hard drives or an SSD. go it do, fag.

Rico, I love you so much,
chem - I want to start playing around with some software I got and cannot use; it is mostly freeware versions of some CGI crap.
By "got," i mean my friend Z stole it. (not zman from interwebz)

I want to learn to make environments and I am currently learning how to code.
My primary goal is to apply some of the 'artistic-theory' I have into an actual next-gen mod/game.
I am also looking to enter the realm of multimedia arts and shit, someone please find Diddy and ask him for advice on my behalf.

I have been saving this money for years and I would really like to NOT waste it.

The reason that shit is expensive is because I want a widescreen display that is above 75 hz refresh rate.
This one is 120hz with 2ms response time, and I say that having no idea what "response time" is.
Z has one and it looks amazing, oh my god, so smooth. Grain would rape 1000x harder with it. srs.

Or am I being a dumbass?

if that's what you're looking to do then it makes sense now. my only advise would be to seek out somebody who does this type of thing for a living and ask them for some help. check out some companies online that are into this kind of work and see if you can email somebody there. i know that applications you are talking about do need some heavy hardware to work correctly, but im not sure if the coding aspect does. so really this machine might be over kill, and it might be spot on, i honestly have no idea. if you can get me some material on requirements for what you want to do, i could help more

If the 975 does not drop below 650$, I am not getting it.
After reading some more shit on it, turns out that most likely won't happen until q2 of 2011. So fuck that.

So here is the more practical choice at CPU:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115225

Also, Rico, I do not know shit on SSD's and they make me nervous, but when you say "faster" HDD's - do you mean like faster rpm?

The new sata's have that '6gb/s' bullshit, but tom's hardware said that only on a random read do you see any kind of difference between the new sata 3 and the sata 2.
About 101.7 mb/s (sata 3) to 73.3 mb/s (sata 2).

The previously aforementioned mobo supports sata3, and I was gonna raid 2 of them in a RAID 0 "stripe" configuration.

But what "should" I do? Anyone?

I was going to use this pirated version of Vue (E-on), a 3d environment rendering program, but it seems the version Z stole for me is xSteam in which ill need to buy another 3d graphic software to even use it, so fuck that. However I have been talking with boshed as of late and the gist what what I am told is ALOT of compiling goes on. So I guess I need lots of space and ram, I'll try finding out more.

I probably will have to pay to use my schools CGI farm, so I will be toning down this PC a bit until I get coding and environments down.
Boshed help me realize that CGI workstations cost around 3 months worth of coke dealing, however it is getting more feasible to for the aspiring artist:

Consider this the "more info" you requested chem :

Consider this a bump, Rico.
I know you do a lot of photo editing so you would know about moving a lot data around; therefore, what should I do about my hard drive situation J0die-Wodie? Is my sata 3 idea a good one or should I really get a smaller SSD? Or what? Am I stupid or what?

I really don't know for sure. I used to keep up with hardware shit when I used to get Maximum PC magazine, but I kinda got out of all that. If it was me tho, and I had the $, I'd go with a resonable SSD for running Windows and some of your programs and just use a sata for everyday storage.

Thank you Rico, but no thank you.
I now need a car as well, so I have made my sticker price at like $2,300 for this PC. I think I can get everything with smart shopping under 2k. We'll see.

That case is pretty rad though.
Like a fucking g-string, does not leave much to the imagination.
