a mmorpg all by yourself? you shouldnt be doing that...
1. experience so i get better as a develooper
2. it's a fun experiment. As i said this is a side projekt and it could be my life work aswell. i'm not going to set any high goals, thoe im not going to stop working on it either so ill see how far that goes =)
And if you actually DO need the setup above, as you claim to. You may as well go with a NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 rather than the 2 295's. I'm sure you have the spare 6000$ for that one. And while we're at it, drop the HDD's and get yourself the new Intel X 25E series SSD drives.
If you really wanna go pro whit your computer.
Get SSD hard-driver (they are faster than your 10000rpm WD)
or eaven better, buy 2 SSD and make them work in raid 0
Intel Core i7 Quad Processor i7-975 - 700$
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 - 200$
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz 12GB CL9 Kit w/6x 2GB XMS3 modules - 120$
GeForce GTX 295 1792MB PhysX PCI-Express - 400$
VelociRaptor 300GB - 100$
Now, considering the PSU is crap and you can do better for the same or even less amount... and the Graphic card is the first hit I had on google, which I am sure of you can find cheaper around.
Still only 1520$. Obviously this is not counting the other useless expanses such as Lite-On Blu-Ray Writer.. wich I still wonder why you would be needing that. the Creative X-FI TITANIUM PCIE CLE EGS considering your above motherboard has a pretty decent onboard sound, the Logitech G15, the Windows Copy, the abosultely uncalled PSU and overpriced case. You still wont be getting over the 1900$, though I am refusing to add the blu-ray burner to it as it's just plain and utterly stupid to be getting one at this time. Same goes with pretty much the entire setup, as I repeat, there's absolutely nothing you could be needing this for. Mapping does NOT require that kind of a system.
But as said, if you plan on spending a good 5000$ or 6000$ on a PC you wont be needing for another 5 years as there's nothing other than benchmarks that can make full use of it, you can do way better.
Actually the price is all relative to your region. My danish relatives always buy laptops and notebooks when they visit me in the usa, and take them back. Even buying something like 1-2 laptops or fly fishing pools, they can resell back in copenhagen in an auction for enough profit to pay for their whole trip here. They also did that with the iphones before they were sold in europe. If your in the united states though, the cost of building a new pc is cheaper than just about anywhere else in the world. Oh ya, take their advice, get some solid state drives, you really don't need that much space, get external harddrives for all your extra data, it's always better to keep your drives clean and running fast. Why have over a TB of info on a pc, it will just take ages ever time you do a virus scan, or if you decide to defrag, it's a nightmare. Moderate sided solid state drives for your current projects, and external drives for large data files, movies, music, pictures, and so on.
stop with all ur b.s talking u apperiently don't know anything so shut up.
for instance there are many diffrent i7 quad pricessors.
Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition i7-975 / 3.33 GHz processor
cost 9.995:- sek wich is 1432 $
there are alot diffrent pricessors wich is cheaper and also are i7 but this 1 cost 1432$
to the next part
ASUS P6TD Deluxe, X58, Socket-1366
cost 2.695:- sek wich is 386$
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz 12GB CL9
cost 2.899:- sek wich is 415$
then we have 2 x graphic cards
4.395:- + 4.395:- = 8790:- sek wich is 1259$
let me summon it so far
1259 + 415 + 386 + 1432 = 3492$
and now i don't even have hardware nor do i have any OS etc etc.
and you tell me it cost 1500 $ that's b.s
i know also for sure that many ppl bought iphones in USA really cheap and resold in europe.
complaining that u have the highest prices is just a big fat lie.
maybe u should bother actually do some research before u post idiot comments.
theese prices i have is cause i buy from Komplett.se - Nordens största nätbutik
go look urself if u don't belive me and stop increase ur post count by doing thoose posts
Yeah i really have no idea why he thinks my post was bullshyt, and that pc parts are cheaper overseas. I know many people who buy cheap in the USA and take over to euro countries to resell. Either he has no american relatives or friends to get him good deals, or he is just some kid who doesn't know anything about conversion. Some euro countries like Denmark, the customs doesn't allow packages over around 15 USD value, that includes postage, if the value is above that then they tax the shyt out of you. Like if you order items from ebay and they open and see sale recipe and value they will start adding charges. You never hear of american people going over to europe and buying cheap electronics and iphones and reselling them in the united states. Although it use to be good for us to go to canada and shop when the dollar was stronger. Since the dollar is much weaker now, it's much cheaper for europeans to come over here, if they can get their goods past customs without added charges.
make the MMORPG with ko pk style and then you got yourself a first member in your game
You might also want to run dual monitors, dual 22inch+ monitors is a nice setup. or larger.
mmh yeah goes also about 5k usd for that pc, if to compare with Estonian's store prices
