Evening Reading

By Steve Gibson, Sep 10, 2007 6:00pm PDT Yes yes.. I've missed you guys too. I'm looking forward to giving Quake Wars another shot when I get back home in a few days. Of course I've still got to play through BioShock and finish Prime 3... hmmm. Things could be worse!

Lastly, I checked out the NBA Live 08 demo that hit XBLM the other day and by some kind of miracle it seems those guys finally unsucked the game. 06 was just unfinished and 07 made me want to cut myself with how sloppy it was. I now look forward to kicking Maarten's ass on the internets with NBA Live 08. I sure hope season mode stuff is good.

    Thanks for all the replies to that for a system setup. I think Im going to get this build and its right at my budget of around 1450. I really would like to bring that down some more but I cant bring myself to lower anything from the video card (I want to keep it along time) to the motherboard (It supports DD3 for future use). But what about the CPU? Do you think its all that worth it for the next year or even 6-9 months to have a quadcore right now? Anyways, here are the specs:

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB 7200 RPM $69.99
    EVGA GeForce 8800GTX 768MB $529.99
    COOLER MASTER Centurion 534 Black Aluminum & Mesh bezel Case $49.99
    Sony NEC 18X DVD±R DVD Burner 12X DVD-RAM Write $29.99
    PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V 610W Power Supply $149.99
    G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 $79.99
    GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard $149.99
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz $279.99
    Windows Vista 64-Bit Home Premium $111.99
    Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound $5.99

    Total : $1,457.90

    Do I need more ram? Keep in mind I will be playing games at 1900x1080 as well. How's it look?
