Nice system! Do you still have both your arms, or did you have to trade one in for those dual 6800 Ultra cards?!?! best of luck.

Wow! That is just badass, acid. That must have set you back at LEAST 3 grand. Well worth it though. That machine needs a much bigger display than that 21" Samsung. At least a 50" plasma if not a 720P front projector! I am jealous.

That is indeed a supercomputer. How about a picture? Benchmarks?

I would have recommended going with a 1920x1200 monitor, the hp is only 1.5k. 1600x1200 just seems too crowded after I got one!

I just built a bleeding edge rig based on the x800xt and I recommend the following eye candy games:

Half-Life 2 (and the gorgeous Counter-Strike Source)
Far Cry
Unreal Tournament 2004 (and the wonderful Red Orchestra mod)

and Doom 3 if you feel like looking at a black screen because the friggin game is so dark!

and PS do you know about Omega Drivers? I got 20 more fps in HL2 when are started using them.

3dMark05 is a free benchmark. Counterstrike: Source comes with one as well.

With a rig like that, I don't think it matters what drivers he uses ;)

Cool. I too a have Paradigm system (Studio series).

Man when 1080p tvs/projectors actually accept 1080p signals, you rig would able to handle that resolution with ease - imagine Half Life 2 in 1080p :cool:.
