hey guys..how are you ..well iam upgrading my 3d workstation ..as one of my ram sticks seems to have died for no reason..anyway my current setup is as fallow....
1)Motherboard :asus a8n premium sli
2)GPU: 2 sli Nvidia Geforce 7800 gt
3)Cpu: Amd opteron 170 dual core OC @ 2.4(for now)
4)HD: 2 120 seagate ultra ATA
5)2 :NEC dvd rw drives
and i have a Wacom Cintiq 21UX connected to that setup ....
now when this whole thing started i just wanted to get a new ram but i was wondering:
1)what kind of Ram am i limited 2 here?
2)should i go with low latency ram ..or should i go with something average ?
3)at this point i have to OSs windows xp 64 bit and Ubuntu with glx ..both are running on different partitions on the same drive while ther other one is for data backup ..but i want to go SATA do you think that such setup would benefit from going SATA or am i better off staying with the IDE?what kind of SATA drive am i limited 2 ?
4)do you see anything ells that i should upgrade?allot fo people told me to switch from my sli setup to single 8800 or a DX10 crad ...but i honestly think its not worth it YET.....what do you think?
let me know what do you think guys ,opinion ..parts recommendations ...just explain to me why...
