I'm currently in the process of saving up for a new desktop, so the one I have now is my 5 year old Compaq desktop (my faster, newer Dell laptop has been dead for 1/2 a year)

Compaq Presario (2004 model)

2.4 Ghz Celeron

512 MB RAM

160 GB hard drive (plus two 750 GB external hard drives that I put all my music and pictures on)

NVIDIA GeForce graphics card (not sure on the specifics)

1.8 Intel Centrino

GeforceGo 6600

1GB RAM

100GB HD

It's a great machine, but I regret thinking dual cores were a load of bull$h!, and buying a single core.

PCS, I thought you had one of those HP Blackbirds?

I'm thinking about upgrading my computer's video card, I added a Blu Ray drive today.

might want to look at an ati card.. but i've not seen how the nvidia cards run blu ray. i just know that newer amd/ati laptops run bluray video beautifully and can do other things at the same time without making the video choppy. there are youtube vids of this, amd/ati vs intel.... but I know intel doesn't make even basic gaming cards, integrated or not.

ati's 46xx range should be coming out in the next 2 weeks,

AMD has the best integrated graphics at the moment, however for discrete graphics AMD and Nvidia are pretty much neck and neck.

you mean the 4870X2... the ATI is the better deal, but they are close with more than one app.

I read supposedly Nvidia may be the first to 40nm. video cards are skipping the 45nm "node".

forgot to mention 2 raptor 10k rpm 150 gig drives in raid 0.

And i have a Server just chillin around dell poweredge 2500 twin 1.1 ghz P3 4 gigs of ram. Dual gigabit fibre outs. to two cisco switchs and a HP procurve router all in CAT 6 and fibre uplinks. it has 2 TB's total capicity in 15k rpm SCSI drives. Its a nice little toy to play with.... and learn with.

As ATI vs Nvidia goes well it pointless. Im a straight Nvidia guy but i have seen enough results and benchmarks to say that no program is the same for both cards. the 4870 will beat a single GTX 280 in some things but not others. However SLI is more stable than crossfire. the one good thing is competition means no more $700 cards. even cpus have before cheap.
