Yeah the Wife loves her PC's and the Storm Scout, suits her needs very well , she manly does Media editing and Photoshop along with some other Programs she uses for designing Sims2 custom content, and gaming wise she Plays Sims 2 and Sims3 along with a few other games that she hasnt used in a while.
Definitely you should give your Scout to Mindy seeing you have the HAF now!
Oh, believe me, she has it! I can't even overclock it because she won't let me sit there long enough to put it through it's paces. I'm planning a window upgrade once we move but I'll have to use a new window because she'll never let me take the side off for as long as I need to do what I want.
Sims, tried Sim City 3000 once, man that's a tough game, really works out your FPU too.
Here's a shot of what $2400- buys you.
Here's more info on my search for Nvidia information and what is really going on with them. I upgraded my PSU recently went from a Chiftec 1000w to an Enermax Revolution 1050 rated 80+ Silver, the Egg had 2 versions of the same PSU so I contacted them and asked what the difference was. The rep said, one has an ATI crossfire label on it, the other has an Nvidia SLI label on it, that's all. Hmmm, why bother? I just ordered the only one the Egg then had left, it was over $100- off with the rebate, they had both models for 2 days, my lag time ran them out of most of thier stock. This model is now showing sold out at all e-tail vendors.
Now I'm reading that Nvidia will not allow any supplier to put the SLI label on anything unless it is specifically labeled as SLI, it really doesn't matter if it handles Crossfire or not, they all do, but Nvidia's marketing licenses will not allow Nvida, SLI or Physx to be on anything that also says ATI or Crossfire. You'd think with the market for good being depressed they'd loosen up on some of these snob nosed policies.
If anyone wants a repost of what the 80+ ratings mean, just ask and I'll post it again. Edited by BriSleep - 5/24/10 at 2:08pm
