    Posted: 31 Oct 2008 at 1:32pm

First i have to say im completly satisfied with my new DSO rig.  About 3 weeks ago i was looking for a new computer i was looking at alienware and was very iffy since dell bought them out.  Anything close to the specs i got with this computer was close to 6k from alienware.  Then i was doing some looking online and i saw the good things that were being said about this company.  Everyone on the forums are really helpful especially DST with helping me configure my computer.  On the 13th i placed my order and it arrived at my house october 29th.  I havnt done much gaming yet but i was playing warhamer online with max setting at 1280X1024 with 16xAA and 16xAF and no slow down at all.  I will def not be buying any more computers from any place else except here.

Specs:
 
haf 932 case- stage 2 cooling
750w PSU
790i XFX mobo
Q9550 OC'd to 3.54ghz
4gb OCZ ram DDR3(not sure of the OC)
RAZR AC-1
150 gb velicraptor HD
evga GTX260
 
and last of all the pics Confused

very nice like the lights I thought that the case come stock with internal red but its only the front fan. I had to order some cathodes for mine.  You can check your ram oc in bios or when it starts up it flashes ram timming and what it is running at.ErmmHeart

well when some of the extreme processors come down in price or if they release something i could get 4.0 ghz on i would prob  do that along with water cooling it.  Probaly at the same time beef up the PSU and add another another 260 my self.

With watercooling on the exterme id shoot for 5.0ghz skip their overclocking and do it yourself. Check out in Overclocking, 780i overclocking like page 2 or 3 has processors and overclocks for all proccesors.Tongue

I would let them OC it so it would be under warranty, but then push it myself and see how far up safely I can go

but ya LC and CPU and GPU upgrade is good reasons to send it in

Thats very smart, by next year prices of everything would have dropped lots
