A measley 128MB PC133 and 800 MHz Athlon :( ... but I'm upgrading to the following B4 JK2 comes out:-

AMD AthlonXP 1900+ (1600MHz),
512MB DDR,
The best performing mobo (IMO) out at the time... whichever one that may be that particular week :rolleyes:,
Radeon 8500,
40 Gig IBM HDD,
M$ Intellimouse Explorer Optical v3 (more buttons + no cleaning! :D)
TDK CyClone 40/24/10 CD-RW

...should be pretty good for JK2 :)

Suuuhhhwweeeeett..... but what's that "HDD 7200Rpm with Twin Processor" bit??? I've never heard of it :confused:

Nice sound you've got there :)
Mine's SPDIF'ed into my HiFi (speakers either side of my monitor).

I want a 21inch monitor too... but my dad's too damn tight! He reckons my 17inch one is more than enough... what is he on??!!? (j/k, I suppose ;))
His parents are far worse tho... thay're practically millionaires (n/k), and tighter than Monty Burns!!! :eek:

8 FANS?! You must be some serious overclocker...

I got 6 fans total in my computer (1 on CPU, 1 on the GeForce II, 1 on Northbridge I think [the one with VIA icon on it] , 2 Chassis case fan, 1 Power supply fan)

This is what happens if you don't have ENOUGH fans...

How is that Radeon8500 doing with other games? Is it better than the original Radeon? ****, I sure hope so, a total of two or three of my 40 games or so ran with the original Radeon so I got a GF2 GTS. Ahh! :p :cool: :D :o :) ;)

Can anyone give me a link or some suggestions as to what I need to look for? I realize that memory comes in various forms these days, but i dont even know how to check what TYPE of ram I have!

I read in numerous places that the Athlon outperforms Pentiums.
That's price to performance. So a cheaper athlon will do better than an expensive P4. I don't have the numbers on hand though.

And Athlons an handle more instructions per clock cycle.

CaptainRAVE
01-20-2002, 04:20 PM
Pretty much everyone will agree with you there, even people with Pentiums. I cetainly agree with you. The 1.4Ghz Athlon is almost as good as the 2Ghz Pentium 4. Some games it is better, some it is worse, but the overall results are close.

Outlaw
01-20-2002, 05:33 PM
I upgraded not to long ago to an Intel P4 2.0 with 512 megs of PC800 memory. Videocard is a Geforce 3 ti 200 with 64 megs of ram. I find performance extremely fast and stable with the latest games and demos. I'm running at very high resolutions in 32bit color on a 19 inch Sony Trinitron monitor. Please remember when games and drivers take better advantage of the P4 instruction sets performance will increase even further.

Ahh, I see. So it's kind of like getting RAID 0 performance from one drive instead of having to use two? ...Or am I waaaaay off?

Are they only SCSI? Or can you get IDE as well? Are they worth it? And where the hell do you get them from??? - I've never come accross them in my continuing quest for PC components... ;)

hmmm...
When my brother upgrades in the summer(or earlier), we're going to use his old 750mhz Athlon as a file server...or so he says... If there is a linux version of the server(any word on this?), you can bet money I'll run one!

My cable actually is running fast recently(2500kps+ the other day) so it might not be that bad, especially overclocked! It could be the JK2.net clan server(assuming I make it of course)!

One more thing, how many of you bought your own system, some of you have some nice units and I was wondering how some of you ,being in HS and all, bought these things.

I looked at birthdays and some of you are younger then my under wear..:rolleyes:

buying your own system is cheep when you put it together and buy old stuff like me :D you get good deals on cards and whatnot that are a year old or so.... i splurged on a mobo and ram though... i bet everyone here would laugh if they saw the nine year old monitor and keyboard that came with my original Tandy 386 :rolleyes: it maxes out at 800x600, oh well, at least games run good at low resolution.... arg...:mad:

I think you can get then for IDE, but their actually more expensive. If you have a SCSI and a twin processor HDD then it is worth it.

cable

incredible res on EF(1280x1024)(those incredibly detailed texs now look grainy)(is there a crosshair?), not on Wolf(960x720)(crashes at anything higher)...

building another computer around JK2 time:

512mb PC2100 DDR
mobo...?(recommendations appreciated)
GF3ti200

all i have is a laptop with:
AMDK62 475 mhz
120 mb ram (actually 128 MB but 8 are used by graphics card)
trident graphics card
5.3 GB hard drive (it says 6, but the comp says 5.3, damn computers say 1,014 bytes = 1 KB and so on, while we say 1,000 bytes = 1 KB)
i only have about 1.05 gb left, may get an external usb drive
Windows ME (regrets this, not paying money for XP)

my home comp
its embarasing(sp?)
its dying so it won't be able to run JKII
my bro thinks he is going to get a new comp before JKII comes out, yeah right, my dad probably won't let him, or take it over

My computer is horribly pathetic, which is why I'm going to upgrade once I get a job and some cash.

AMD K6-2 333mHz
128MB PC133 RAM
4.3GB Maxtor IDE HDD
TNT2 Ultra
Sound Blaster Live! Value w/FourPoint Surround Sound
15" Sony MultiScan 100ES
DSL Internet connection
Windows 98 SE

I got out of gaming in 2000 (which saved me a TON of money). The only game I bought in 2000-2001 was Red Alert 2. So I haven't really needed to upgrade, but now here comes JK2.

CaptainRAVE
02-10-2002, 06:03 AM

I just don't know if I can afford a new graphics card... it's already gonna cost me $400 for processor, mobo, hard drive, and memory. I'm hoping that with a faster processor and more memory my vid card will do alright.

Right, but currently my processor is limiting the vid card. With details toned down and low resolution it will work.

All of the plastic and metal (on the computer) is also black colored, which makes it look kind of cool.


I should have a satelite connection by the time JO comes out
luckly.

Hehe I just added two 12 volt exhaust fans to my box.

CaptainRAVE
02-24-2002, 03:06 PM
Well I have room for one more air conditioning card......that would push up my total fans to 11........And maybe later on I may add a little construction of mine that allows you to put another fan onto the case fans. I could increase my fans to a total of 15 if I do that and add the air conditioning card....but at the moment 10 fans is enough for me ;)

Hmmm.... i think not. Even with your 10 fans (are you even overclocking?), a lot of systems posted here outperform yours - RatBoy, Outlaw, definitely Jyt-Pon Dai'el, and others. Plus now me -

Athlon XP 1800+
Msi K7T266a Pro 2
512 mb DDR
GeForce 3 (+ big O/C)
SoundBlaster Audigy
DVD, CD rewriter, and all the rest of that crap

how much does a fan cost for a computer?

Wacky_Baccy
02-25-2002, 01:40 PM
Not a lot - anything from a few dollars to 30 - depends if you want one with phenominal performance (and noise), or one with less performance, and considerably less noise...

Thermaltake has an interesting one - it has a thermal sensor to control the fan speed, which is excellent for when your comp is idle, and you don't want (or need) the extra performance and noise. (Great if you have it in your room, and sleep - or try to ;) - with it on.)

The 80mm Thermaltake one ('Smart Fan') would cost roughly $10-$15, I think - although you'd probably need two (one intake and one exaust) to get the temp. low enough so that they'd both run at the lower speed and noise.

That's just one option, of course. If you have a look around (on the net or in local stores), you're bound to find something that suits your needs.

Either way, adding fans will usualy increase stability, and also quite possibly prolong the life of your components, so it's well worth doing :)

Are computers hard to build? I seem to have this mental picture in my mind of how to put everything together, but th most I've done before is install additional ram. It's not really that tough is it? Are there certain precautions to take when putting everything together? Is http://www.pricewatch.com a good place to buy parts? What all parts do I need? Case, Mobo, Ram, Video card, sound card, CPU, DVD/CD stuff? Am I missing anything? I would like to build a Comp for college. I have a year to save up. Do I sound like a newbie? I thought so too. Maybe this should be a new thread...

You are missing a few things. You need a monitor, keyboard and a mouse. :D
