Building the Dream System
Posted on: 10/06/2000 08:35 AM

The Tech Zone has a 10 page write up on what they consider their dream machine. I know there are some fr34ky peeps out there who would like more but the stuff they pick is a little more realistic (pfftt hell with that where is my Quad Xeons!). Well go give it a "look see" here.
So why SMP for gaming? Well in all honesty SMP really doesn't help you out all that much, unless you're playing Quake III (and there are even conflicting reports on how much that really helps as well). However, it's safe to say that if you're dropping this kind of cash on an ultimate gaming rig, you want it to be able to do a hell of a lot more than just games. Hell, being able to games flawlessly while playing mp3s, burning a CD, and compressing a massive .zip file is something that every hardcore gamer could appreciate.
