Title: Amd/Nvidia galaxy evo setup
Post by: unixfreak on October 06, 2013, 07:57:45 pm
Been running this for the past few months, purchase through ebay.
First desktop upgrade in about 6 years for me. Got a real GPU this time. Shaders = on  :anisan:

Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3
PSU: 500 Watt
RAM:  Corsair Vengeance 8gb DDR3 1600mhz (x1)
Disk: 1TB Hitachi, 7200rpm
GPU: Palit NVIDIA GT 610 2gb
Sound: NVIDIA GF119 HDMI Audio Controller
Fans: 2x120mm (front/rear),  1x80mm (side)
Optical Drive : 24x Dual Layer DVD Writer
Connections : 6 x USB 2.0 / 2 x USB 3.0 / LAN / Sound
Case:  Galaxy Evolution (black)
OS: Kubuntu 13.04 x86_64

Price paid: £381.

Pic of case (fans can change colour on demand):

Would have installed a dual boot Slackware/FreeBSD setup again, although i've taken an interest in Steam lately, and Kubuntu seems a sensible option cause it just works without any fiddling needed.

Cube2 based games run without obvious lag on full settings (minus motion blur/bloom) at 1440x900 resolution. So it's not too bad (even though cheap end GPU), cpu is wicked though, compiles Red Eclipse in 22 seconds after a `make clean' lol.

Why would someone bother about the properties which an other person has? It's not like you could borrow it. Telling to people what you own is 1 of things in life which I don't and probably never will understand...

Uhm, well the subforum is "Your system specs".
If anything, someone can look at a few threads here (knowing we all play sauer) and get an idea of what hardware is borderline for playing with whatever settings.

Seems like your specs wouldn't be the border line. Ever tried using a Pentium 3 or 4 processor?

Runs sauer/red eclipse on full settings 1440x900 just about fine, i'd say thats more than borderline without having to spend a ridiculous amount on a PC.

No, i have never needed a furnace for smelting gold before.

Hey guys i have been away for a while as my PSU exploded (well, not really, it just kept turning off and power surging because it was rubbish). I couldn't even open firefox for more than 5minutes without it powering down.

Just this morning put in one of these:
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W ATX.
Also upgraded to a GTX 650 ti 2GB.
