those new 3850/3870's are doing really well at scaling from what i've been seeing, almost 200% performance if i recall correctly.

yeah thirdshift that is true, however she is one gorgeous woman.

p.s. i actually love my xtrac ripper xl, its gigantic but i wouldn't imagine gaming without it. my copperhead glides all over it. and it only cost me $14..

Default Re: Good System Specs

the stacker is a full tower case (much more room)

and the 900 is a mid tower... (roomy, but just not as much)

The 900 is a dang good case, with lots of air flow, but I go for room first. The Stacker will give good airflow AND have lots of room for parts and future use. put it this way... I have this one:

[Phoronix] SilverStone Temjin TJ09 Review

and it's worth EVERY penny to me!

Get this ram instead of the tracers. The only difference is the tracers have led lights.

Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Also I would go with this power supply instead of the Antec one mentioned earlier.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 520W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail
