    been always toying with the idea of getting a PC box for raw processing.

    The K8n-SLI is not a AM2 platform, it doesn't support DDR2 memory.
    Most of us wouldn't touch a non-enterprise, Maxtor drive. The Seagate/ Western Digital/ Hitachi SATA drives are a much safer bet.

    oops...sorry. wasn't aware that k8n-SLI doesn't support DDR2 memory. my mistake

    i wouldn't think that maxtor is really "less enterprise" than something like seagate. I've got pretty bad experiences with Seagates - especially at an "enterprise" level. I agree Hitachi's a good - especially those that are dual-ported, dual bearing in the enterprise space.

    I am convinced now that the brand of RAM does make the difference. I used to be skeptical.

    The chipset used on the rams do matter slightly.. Especially when you start overclocking them.. You'll be able to see the difference in benchmarks.. Some ram chips perform better than others although they are at the same clockspeed and latency settings.. Probably some optimizations in the throughputs.

    wow, looking at the pro configuration that you guys have really make me envy. Me not a technical guy so know nuts about configuring the sys myself.

    BTW, I just bought a Dell system at suntec, any comments, enough for my PS work?

    Dell Dimension 9150 Pentium 830 w/Dual Core Desktop
    - 3.0Ghz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800MHz FSB Intel(R) 945P chipset
    - 2GB (4x512) NECC Dual Channel DDR2
    - 160GB SATA 3.0GB
    - Dual Drives 16X DVD ROM + DVD+/- RW with Dual layer
    - 256MB PCIe x16 ATI Raedon, VGA n DVI
    - 19" Flat panel (Analog)

    Above bought at $1988

    Is it worth? Anyone encounter problem working on a dell.

    Got 1:25 on my system.

    AMD Opteron 146 + Abit KN8
    2 x 512MB Kingston CL2.5 dual channel

    Not too bad... Not too bad.. considering that my CPU + mobo combo costs only $500+.

    My previous studio uses Dell Optiplex for their PC-based DI stations. No problem, what-so-ever!

    I used to have a Dell Optiplex GX300 at home for Photoshop work, and I have absolutely no problem with it. My only problem came from Windows 2000 Professional.

    Currently, I am using a self-assembled Pentium 4 CPU unit running on Windows XP Professional and a Mac Powerbook G4.

    hi, what is the timing you got with this setup?

    There is always room for improvement but since it's DELL, you have to becareful what you change. Some parts are under warranty and make sure you know that. This system is more than enough unless you are looking for the top of the range. For 1988, it's a steal plus you are able to get support by them. Make sure you purchase the extended warranty as it's quite useful......

    however that test would not be conducted by me. I am not able to even justify the cost of such. so far keeping both cores utilized is already a problem.. having quad core is only going prove how long they can idle.

    anyway only the tyan supports 8 CPU AMD opterons.

    I believe sun systems has already 16 way opterons.
    Aiyo, I think that's a little unreachable for consumer like us. You already mentioned it's Sun Systems.....not a consumer model. If there is a Quad Single core Opteron how much would that be and who is using it at the moment? Is it selling at SLS yet?
