overclock an x6800 a decent bit, overclock a very good gpu, and raid two raptors together
Isn't the gpu, the x6800?
It seems like you haven't been keeping up to date with the computer parts. It's okay though, I haven't been keeping up with the technological advances lately either but I just know this much:
X6800 is a processor.
Intel core 2 Extreme X6800.
I was thinking about gforce cards.
"He shoots - he gets the ball stuffed down his throat"
Lol, I was thinking it was a gfx card too. (no, I absolutely do not try to keep up to date with that stuff)
So a reason not to overclock an Intel core 2 Extreme X6800 and a "very good gpu"?, well it seems to me they're probably already about 10 times faster than the average computer user will require..
I tend to have a lot of faith in what these kinda components can do without needing to be overclocked so I'd just let 'em run as they are and take away a few annoying fans.
Mightn't get you that extra 10 marks in 3d mark 2006 or pc mark or w/e, but I'm sure you'd live.
Raiding 2 raptors doesn't seem like a bad idea. I'd love to be able to do that.
Yeah. I thought it was a geforce as well. I just had to check and make sure what the hell that X was for.
Yeah, I'm assuming a "vergy good gpu" would be something like x1900xtx (1950's aren't faster are they? I heard the x1900xtx is a fkin monster though. ) or probably the geforce 7950 GX2. I want it. Two of them.
I've overclocked X6800s up to 3.2 and 3.4 without any issues. Just make sure you have good cooling on it, and good airflow in your case. I never really tried playing with the GPU a whole lot (one of the systems had a 7900GT, the other had a 7950GX2). Doing a RAID with two Raptors is a great idea. Very fast setup.
I currently have 1 raptor and love it but I was thinking of doing the same and doing a RAID. Think there would be that much improvment from just 1 to 2 in RAID?
