WXGA (1280*800) sucks on a screen that size IMO, pero YMMV. Other than that, okay na rin yung specs. In the event you change your mind and you're willing to purchase from overseas, I think configuring an XPS M1530 gives you more bang for the buck.

hehe if ever i got to wait, most probably di ko afford hehe. in any case, that 30k system got built, ended up around 26k, which includes an X2 4800, 2GB of RAM, a 250gig drive, a Palit 9600GT, an Asus 19" LCD, and Edifier speakers.

all in all its good gaming value for just 26k, subtracting the LCD and others means the cpu itself went for just 16k.

powersupplies: you dont really want to spend that much on a powersupply? meet the HEC Raptor 500W



feels like a replacement for the 550AB, as it still has active PFC, not to mention its cheaper, which you can get for 2-2.4k

if youre sitting on a single gpu, air-cooled overclocked system, this is one of the better buys, as opposed to the Gigabyte Superb that i used to recommend months ago.

need your suggestion guys.

i'm planning to build a torrent box slash htpc slash gaming rig.  i know they have different characteristics and they actually contradict each other in most of them.  that's my problem.

i can't afford to build two PCs, so the plan is to get a balanced enough rig that will serve both purposes, meaning:

• it should not consume too much power when downloading torrents (HybridPower?  which Processor?)
• powerful enough to play Crysis, even at low/medium settings (9800gt?)
• powerful enough to play 720p MKV files (on-board VC? 2Gb/4gb mems?)

what do you guys think, is this even possible?

if not overclocking look into the hybrid crossfire boards so that you can save on power when not doing 3d stuff

i'm currently using one..
so far so good..
upgraded my hec 475w just because i don't want to see any unfilled sockets on my motherboard (4+4 atx and 20+4 connector)

so far my only complaint is that its cable are waay shorter compared to my old hec 475w (power op) or even the 550 version...
the L type sata is a big plus though for side mounted sata drves ^_^

suggestion lang


some comments....
supposedly 20k, 25k (silent), 30k (light gaming), 60k gaming, 80k (gaming/video editing)
i noticed that the 25k silent is too expensive (vs. the 30k light gaming), so i think the psu should be lowered to 400w and find a cheaper motherboard

again, suggestion lang ang mga ito.. .hehehehehe

P.S.  I based my prices on rsun's October 4 pricelist, and for simplicity all items can be bought at rsun (some are pre-order basis though)

P.P.S.  9600GT (MSI OC version) in the rsun pricelist is 8k +, that's why i opted for 9500GT, i suggest look for other computershops for the video card, or get the 9800GT...

P.P.S.  Intel Core 2 Quad 9400 and up would have been a better processor for the 80k (gaming/video editing) or maybe the new xeons (the x3210 (kentsfield) is performing really well in after effects for me though (even better than maybe the q6600 that my friend hsa.. hahahahaha), but i believe those new quaddies (q9xxx) are better)

i think that's the one you posted above. ^_^

anyway... yep, i find it a bit expensive as well, most likely due to the mother board, ups, and the arctic cooling.. and wala nang murang 9600GT sa rsun. :((

anyway... could you post the full specs, so maybe i can fix the 25k one?

Was browsing through some derelict forum lately and saw this guy pulling off a few "hadukins" on his PC. This triggered my appetite for some sonic booms as well. Yanked my ROMs CD from the dusty bin and booted up mame.

Had a friggin' hard time finding the control options and after a few o's from google, I finally managed to program my XBOX 360 controller

"Continue.. 10.. 9.. 8.."

I'd stop beating around the bush and go straight to the point.  Xbox360's d-pad sux.

If there was a perpetual hardware do not suggest thread, I'd note down Xbox 360 is not a fine fighting game controller.

It's a great driving controller though.

I was going through around Fry's yesterday.  I think I saw three different fighting sticks for consoles, but none for PC.
