ATI 5850 Saphire
1TB HDD
Running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

This is my first real computer, I've had it for a few weeks... I'm pretty happy with it!
its cool lol thats what I use , how is the 5850? I have 5770 and was hopping I could crossfire it until the new ATI cards come out in 2011 (or I see decent prices on the 5970's)

I really like it! I thought about buying another one, haha... I'm not sure how much more powerful they are to the 5770 though.

Well 2x5770 is just a bit more powerfull than a single 5850. 2x5850 is almost as powerfull as the 5970..

I have heard that 2x5770s are great. Performance levels of a 5870.

I usually have a side panel on (no window because it is a nightmare inside) but I have new memory I need to install so It's just sitting to the side for now.

Its really sweet, I hope Vapor cooling takes off soon then you could push it like crazy and still have next to no heat

With the VapoChill LS I was able to add another 480MHz to my 2.4C overclock (1GHz overclock total), and was able to overclock a 3.0E Prescott (which are known for running very hot) by 1GHz. A 1GHz overclock on any chip is a great accomplishment, and to achieve that on two very different chips says a lot about the cooling that is being used. Even with the extremely hot Prescott chip at 1.55V and 4GHz, the CPU still only rises to -11C at full load on the processor. Considering most people report temperatures of 70C+ on this processor with air cooling I'd say that -11C is no small accomplishment.

this from 04 im sure they have upgraded since then.

Why, thank you.

It's actually my first computer. I'm not sure why I didn't get rid of it when I built the computer after that but when I realized that older DOS games didn't work so well in 2000. I'm really glad I did.

Yeah. I can almost understand the really old stuff from the DOS days but Max Payne, Moto Racer, Age of Mythologies, Heroes of Might and Magic. Seriously, any Windows based games should be backwards compatible.
