    Question

    When Explorer does hit 100%, how sluggish does the system feel.

    I saw that picture on HKPRO.COM. Apparently they removed the flash-hider on the HK53.

    So far, I've had no problems at all.

    Not state-of-the-art but pretty close!! A couple questions for you if you don't mind: 1. Have you noticed much difference between running 2GB RAM vs. 1GB RAM? I've recently got 2GB (4x512MB Corsair TwinX non-pro) of RAM, but just running 1GB at a time the last few months to test each pair first. I will be running both pairs in the near future when I next crack open my case ... 2. How do you like the 10K Raptors, especially with regards to data transfer speeds, heat and noise? I was considering getting a pair, but since the recent articles about RAID 0 not being any better than non-RAID, I am now considering getting a pair of SATA 250GB HD's which may cost not a whole lot more, but have more capacity (never thought I could have half a terabyte in my system ). ← Hello there, CR6 1. Not really much in standard use, but with games like DOOM 3 and HL2 coming out where I want to run them in hi-res I decided probably more is better. I also do sometimes store and view hi-res images on the rig (which are quite big, 3200x2000 sometimes), instead of my Mac I find it useful. I also found that's it's faster in motherboards with 4 Ram slots, that it's faster to use just two slots inst ead of four. (2x1Gb instead of 4x512). 2. The Raptors are fine and are as smooth as silk for me. I was originally going to use a 36Gb Raptor as a system drive with a 160GB Seagate SATA HDD for games and mp3s, but because I'm using the rig mainly for gaming, I decided to go for speed. I don't really trust RAID when it comes to storage for just everyday use, and having read that article you mentioned, I'm glad I didn't.

    A Fellow Hondo, Hello -911. Anyway here's my gaming rig. It's not really that much, and I've been upgrading over the past 18 months with new parts and some old ones from my previous system, but here's my current specs. Coolermaster Stacker Case with a side window + a blue cold cathode light by the window, a Matrix Orbital MX212 LCD display and a Akasa FX-03 fan controller. ABIT IC7-MAX3 Motherboard P4 3.4Ghz Extreme Edition CPU running at 3.4ghz 2Gb Corsair TwinX3200PRO DDR RAM 2 x WD 74GB Raptors (No Raid and in 2 Vantec Vortex HDD Coolers) Plextor 12x4x DVD Rewriter XFX Geforce 6800 Ultra Graphics Card Soundblaster Audigy2 Platinum Pro Sound Card Creative Gigaworks 7.1 THX speaker system Iiyama ProLite E511S-B 20" LCD Monitor I've got the CPU and the Chipset watercooled using the Danger Dan Maze 4 Ultimate Plus, and I'll probably upgrade the memory to Geil or Corsair PC3500 memory. I've just bought a Logitech MX1000 Laser Mouse and one of the Z-Board Crossfires to replace my old Logitech MX500 and Internet Navigator It's not really the state-of-the-art but it keeps me happy.

    Dream Machine Sep 2004

    If you want to talk about dream machines, try SAVROW UK. SAVROW and look at their Diamond system. I also like the look of their Deuterium system.

    Hello everybody. I'm a new visitor to this site and I thought that before I started posting, I should say Hello. Although I'm new visitor to this site, I've been playing GR for quite some time now, thought not recently enough. I hope to see you around. S.W.A.T
