[Project] Multi-touch Surface Computer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Most of you probably already know what the Microsoft Surface is. For those of you who don't, here's a quick intro video:
Core computer components:
AMD Phenom II X6 1045T
Corsair H60
8GB Corsair XMS3 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
MicroCenter branded 120GB SATA III SSD
MSI GTX 480
Antec EarthWatts 650W PSU
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3

Display:
55" Dynex 1080p HDTV
55" 16:9 Multi-touch frame

As of now, still waiting on the 480 and touch frame to arrive. Basic computer is up and running and hooked up to the TV.

Overclocking the CPU didn't go so well, I found out the board is a horrible OCer and only does 280FSB before it gives up, so I'm stuck at 3.8GHz.

I've also had some issues with massive input lag on the TV (through HDMI), any suggestions for that? I believe I have shut of all post-processing. VGA works fine, however.

Will update with some pictures when I find the time.

Not that I am doubting the sheer awesomness of a machine like multi-touch displays but what are you going to use it for? A real, practical use eludes my thoughts lol

This is a school funded project and will be used in the AP Computer Science course (applications are coded in Java), and it'll just be nice to have around for demos/presentation purposes.
