Kickass machine
Saturday, May 29, 2004 | Permalink

I'm set for some serious development and gaming now with this kickass machine I've built.
Not only is it fast, but it's pretty good looking too. And the crown on top of this work of art arrived today. My manager passed an X800pro board to me. Nothing's like getting free highend hardware.
I brought my Radeon 9800pro and two HDs over from Sweden, but the rest of the machine is new. Now the 9800pro had to go though, so it's just the two HDs that aren't new. Well, they are secondary storage anyway since I also bought a new 160GB SATA drive. The final config:

AMD Athlon64 3200+
ASUS K8V deluxe
ATI Radeon X800pro
Maxtor 160GB SATA HD
Samsung 60GB IDE HD
Pioneer DVR-107D
Nec MultiSync LCD1765 16ms TFT
Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX audio system

Guess I'll be spending some time in front of this machine. And yes, you can probably expect some new demos showing off the capabilities of the X800pro in the not too distant future.

nice ^^
*hope my r9800pro can still run the upcoming demos

Well, well...
Things are getting serious, now !

Don't forget to release the demos you are proud of (like spherical harmonic lighting (?)) ;-)

I'm still wondering... are you in the Application Research Group section ?

Good luck and work hard !

no, I'm in developer relations.

well, it's one of the spare engineering samples. It was probably just laying around anyway, so it's better put it to use.

If there are anymore engineering samples lying around, feel free to send one to me
