Tanthalas Posted January 23, 2007 Share Posted January 23, 2007 Just built my new "Beast 2" machine. (The successor to a machine that got nicknamed "Beast" about 7 years ago, 'cos it was rather shiny for the time.)Coolermaster Stacker 830 case - black, of courseHP-modified Tyan Thunder K8WE motherboard, with onboard U320 SCSI and dual 16x PCI-E slotsTwo dual-core AMD Opteron 270s @ 2Ghz/core4GB DDR RAM2 Fujitsu U-320 15000rpm 140GB SCSI hard drives2 nVidia 7900GTX graphics cards in SLI and overclocked (going to upgrade to 8800GTXs later this year when I get Vista)SLI output split across 3 19" TFT monitors with a Matrox Triplehead2Go adaptorCard reader, DVD drive, writer, etc, etc.Logitech G15 gaming keyboard(Logitech G5 mouse to come and replace my Raptor M2)Lots and lots of 12cm Thunderblade fans - 9 or so (red ones - gives a very sexy diffused red glow through the Stacker's black grills). Loud as hell.Bought some cathodes to go in it, but even with that big a case, they just won't fit! If the I-RAM 2 ever makes it to market, I'm going to get one or two of those and use it as a system drive.It's a rather nice system, and it outputs games superbly. Nothing quite like F.E.A.R. at 3840x1024. Fantastic for my development work, too. Apologies for scaling/compression on the attachments. Straight up screenshots came out at 2.2MB each.
