I just bought some more stuff from newegg, here's my system so far

^_^ Richo complimented it when he checked it out from a shell account while helping me with e17, which made me happy

RIGHTO! Grin

AMD Athlon X2 6000+ 3.0GHz (runs consistently within 5ºF body temperature), 2GB DDR2-800MHz RAM, 250GB SATA 7200rpm HDD, nVidia GeForce 6600LE 128MB 400/500MHz (upgrading to at least an 8600GT soon) off a 500W PSU on an ASUS M4A-MVP mobo, with DVD-R + DVD-R/W, floppy (lmao), analog gauges/controls for volume/temp/fans, 7.1 Realtek audio, generic !subwoofer!, dual CRT monitors (plan to replace these next), lighted ergonomic keyboard, 8"x10" tablet, opt. mouse, unidirectional mic.

I run Windows XP x64 and Fedora 8 x64.

I'm getting used to the tablet, which I bought today. It's pretty sweet, very responsive, and photoshopping with it is just insanely awesome!

So... any suggestions or comments?

Ah, nearly forgot the price. The system with salvaged keyboard/monitors/speakers was under $500 from newegg, plus about $20 in shipping... I just bought the tablet, mic, keyboard, and a dvd burner for another $170, so
total price of about $600 lmao. I bet it would ebay for over 1.2K with a better video card ^_^

I named her Wasser because of all the blue... blue keyboard, blue lights on tablet, blue LED case, blue windowblinds theme, and I might spray paint the monitors' faces blue lol. And yes, my computer is female.

With l0phtcrack5 I can get over 6M keys/sec, and an average of about 5.6M. My last computer barely got 1.2M lol.

Built mine at work from spare parts... we'll compare.


AMD Athlon X2 6000+ 3.0GHz (runs consistently within 5ºF body temperature), 2GB DDR2-800MHz RAM, 250GB SATA 7200rpm HDD, nVidia GeForce 6600LE 128MB 400/500MHz (upgrading to at least an 8600GT soon) off a 500W PSU on an ASUS M4A-MVP mobo, with DVD-R + DVD-R/W, floppy (lmao), analog gauges/controls for volume/temp/fans, 7.1 Realtek audio, generic !subwoofer!, dual CRT monitors (plan to replace these next), lighted ergonomic keyboard, 8"x10" tablet, opt. mouse, unidirectional mic.


Same AMD X2 6000+ processor, 3GB DDR2, 1.4TB RAID5 SATA array, ATI Radeon X1950 512MB, stock PS / MB (Bestec & Intel, if I remember correctly). BOSE speakers w/ subwoofer, Logitech G15 keyboard, 22' LCD monitor, Logitech optical mouse.


I run Windows XP x64 and Fedora 8 x64.


Vista, though I hate it... keeps up with my other Linux installs, though.


So... any suggestions or comments?


The AMD X2 6000+ is sweet, even if you put it in a shoebox with one fan, a CompactFlash for a hard drive, and 3 AA batteries to power it. That's where your performance is really spiking. Up the RAM, not the video card.

Edit: Well, yeah, okay, your video card does suck... up it to at least 256, then buy at least 1 more Gig stick of RAM.

I plan to get more but not anytime soon. Windows loves eating RAM, of course... right now i've got about 5 apps including photoshop and i'm using 45% ram and 18% of a 2gb pagefile. Fedora never touches a pagefile, and rarely goes over 35% RAM, but I probably will get another gig or two sometime in the future. The video, yeah, I really need to get a better one... it serves its purpose now, though, as I don't game often (just Halo1 and MechWarrior:Mercs, lol)

And niiice, what kind of place do you work in? Spare parts... what did you have to pay for those?

First thing I thought when I booted up this system several months ago: DAAAMN this thing's fast! (took under a 45s to boot and log in Win; that's a first XD).

A computer repair place (i.e., paid nothing). Gives me a good opportunity to pit my AMD X2 6000 up against our Intel Core 2 Quad processors. My Pentium D 3.4Ghz (dual-core) running Debian still goes a bit faster than my AMD 6000 running Vista, though. It's fun stuff.

Yeah, the dual-core AMDs are absolutely sexy. Good luck with your system.

So would you say the x2s are faster than the P.D and C2Ds?

In most cases, yes. Like I said... the system I have with a Pentium D 3.4Ghz is the exception, since it still outperforms the AMD X2 6000. The quad-core Intel processors can (finally) keep up with the dual-core AMDs, it seems.

lol. I'm an amd freak, I even have shirts ^_^ and just don't like intel... Not just because I don't want a processor I can cook an egg on, or because every core costs about $50 extra just for advertising... I'm just an AMD fan. But, you said... Intel quad == AMD dual? sweet...!

512mb of ram
15" plasma monitor.

About £160 including postage. Grin


Pay shit get shit. Also, why 512 ram? It's cheap these days, why don't you buy some more?

Also, replace your main HDD, dunno if your external fits (depends what size it is) but 80GB is very 1995. HDDs are so cheap these days, why do you use this crap system if you can upgrade it (so easily)?

If you buy a bigger HDD you can fits two OSes (or more) on it, so you have your external back.

Duuude(s)!!! an Intel Quad Q6600([url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115017
Intel C2Q[/url]
(lol) WILL BLOW AWAY the AMD x2 dual core any day!
*not to start a flame war!*

and you can over clock that Q6600 to 4.0 on each core! (well I heard some ppl doing it) so basically... you have a 16GHZ Proc there...Shock

you won't have a 16GHz processor as the cores can't all work together on one thread, they each work on a seperate thread.
dual core and quad core chips are mainly just for multi-tasking which make then very useful as a single core processor can't multi-task properly as it just basically switches between threads while processing.

IDIOT! do some freakin research, 4ghz x 4 cores does NOT equal 16GHZ! 4 cores just means more cpu time per application, as they are distributed across all cores. It does NOT multiply the clock rate!!!!!

Do a bit of research, if you don't edit your post you're going to get flamed sooo bad... nah, here, so you can't.

I hate when people don't research...

Dude your comparing dual core with quad core. But I know that the release of the AMD Phenom 9700 is coming next month. (secret source) And it will put that Q6600 to Fuckin' shame. I saw the benches on these. Still won't keep up to my FX-74's when thier done though.
You also failed to mention that if you clock a Q6600 to 4.0g it will last about 30 seconds before the temp threshhold shuts it down. Even in water cooling those fuckers burn hot when overclocked like that, Try it with an AMD temps stay down nicely. And you don't get 16g by overclocking you still have 4g. They don't multiply.

well then WTF is this? what does he mean by the Intel Procs can finallu keep up with the dual core AMDS?? wtf Intel was WAY ahead of AMD..
but anyway I don't want AMD to die! cuz intel would then do whatever they want with their prices and stuff... so that would blow --

go amd?!!

This means that intel for years was way behind AMD. Until last year thay never even came close on the benchmarks. And now like I said with the Phenom 9700 coming out It will be a whole new battle for intel to try and beat. Especially with AMD's new L3 cache.

@V1P3R. Yeah the 9600 was a little slower. I meant the 9700 coming out next month. Fucked up when I posted Fixed it. Plus the release of the 9900 is also coming.
