Re: Building A Desktop

Only go with 4 Gb if you have a 64 bit OS. Really 2 Gb is more than enough for what you might use it for. Personally I would stick with Windows XP seeing how vista doesnt seem to be worth upgrading to. Only go to Vista if you want DX 10 which imo is worthless considering some of the comparison shots...

Re: Building A Desktop

Well for HD makers you cant go wrong with a Seagate or Western Digital. Those are the two major brands that come to mind. Really its whichever has the cheaper HD you are looking for. For ram I dont quite know what to go for. I personally went with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E...

Re: Building A Desktop

$1000 dollars would be plenty of money to get the needed parts.

Get parts from Newegg. They have awesome deals at great prices. For instance I just built my own computer for $600 by reusing parts.

Re: Building A Desktop

Well, you have many choices that you can go with on your computer. CPU: Defiantly get a Dual Core or a Quad Core. Multi core games and apps will certainly be the future. You can get both at relatively great prices. I personally went with a quad core, but a dual core can work as well. For a dual core...

Yes, there is a version without itunes.

http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

Just make sure the checkbox for windows download is checked and not the one with itunes. You dont have to enter your email to download it.

If you do not mind a lack of DX10 (Which is worthless at the moment imo) a Geforce 7950 is a very good card. Its the high end of last generation and is still quite decent at many of todays games. I have the 256Mb version and can run games like UT3 at nearly max settings. They also make a 512Mb versi...

Thats what I plan to do as well eventually. Also the fastest dual core is not worth the extra money. You can actually buy the cheaper model and then overclock it to around 3ghz and beyond. I hear that dual cores overclock very easily and do not heat up as much as a quad core does.

The Q6600 isnt that bad of a price either. I think it is the same price as one of the upper end dual core cpus. Just got mine a while ago and you can multitask like crazy and renders in 3d max are noticeably improved.

I did this car a while ago. I need to get back into practicing some high poly stuff to add to my portfolio. This contains 42,000 polys and was made in 3dsmax 6 and rendered with Mental Ray. NOTE: there is a tire tread, it just doesnt show up well on the render. http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/9059/...

Although sony is taking a big risk with the PS3, that doesnt mean it will be a failure. So what if blue-ray doesnt make it into the mainstream. It will still be used for PS3 and the PS3 can play dvds to. Im astonished how people say there will be no great games. How could Armored core 4, Warhawk, Me...
