Thread: Building a computer? Need advice/suggestions? Come here!

  1. #2311

    Re: Building a computer? Need advice/suggestions? Come here!

    I do appreciate you trying to look for alternatives, but the main purpose is to built a powerful machine that woken become old and dated in a short time. I'd rather spend a bit more and make it worth while.

    I was originally going for 680 but in scaling back. In a short answer, yes I would like ability to SLI in future.

    Any issues with compatability with the parts? Going to order later today probably

    Ordered - Had to also buy a 2TB HDD and Windows 7 copy which didnt help the cost =\

    Why would you want to watch your character get shot by a corrupt US General when you can watch him get eviscerated by an eight-foot alien in purple body armour?

    I've been toying around with the idea of getting a server for upcoming projects, to stop the hassle of having to personally give out files and builds of projects.

    I'd like to know, does anyone have any experience working with a server/SVN? What kind of computer components should I be getting/creating for this kind of job, and what kind of settings should the computer have once I get it?

    With AMD dragging their ass on the 7990, the AIB partners seemed to have taken it into their own hands.

    No doubt these and the 7990 itself will be cheaper than the ridiculous prices nvidia is pushing on the 690.

    inorite? $1100 for third-place performance. Then again, from what I'm seeing the AMD offering blows the Nvidia offering away on DX10/11 performance where DX10/11 is actually properly used.

    Actually, the 7970 really shines once you OC it. The first versions weren't faster because the process wasn't refined yet and there were no custom coolers. They honestly should have waited a few more months so that they could have a faster card and look better versus the competition. Had it been out at the time, I would have opted for two GTX 680s for the sake of image quality, but I'm not at all dissatisfied with what I have.

    First off, there are better alternatives to SVN. Git and Mercurial being two common ones.

    What type of content are you planning on versioning? If you're only dealing with text then either will work fine. If you're planning on versioning binary data (for example, Halo Maps and/or PSDs/.max files) you'll want to stick with Mercurial since there are plugins which help keep disk usage in check. Versioning binary data is generally a bitch no matter what though.

    In terms of hardware, you're really not going to need too much. Your ISP is going to be your main bottleneck, and after that I/O. So go for 7200RPM drives or if you're feeling rich, some SSDs.

    In terms of software, it depends on what exactly you want to do. Version Control is a good idea and for the most part you can run SVN, Mercurial or Git out of Apache or Nginx. You'll probably want to stick with some variant of Linux (Ubuntu Server or Fedora being a good starting point) but if you want to spend the money you could get a copy of Win7 Pro/Ultimate or Windows Server. If you have an .edu email address you should be able to get a free copy of Windows Server here.

    Another thing you might want to look into is Continuous Integration. I've mainly seen this done in the context of building source code but there's no reason why you couldn't throw together a couple of scripts which compile map content and then package it up into a zip file or something.

    Will that 570 even fit it in a micro atx case?

    As long as his box isn't one of those SFF cases, he should be fine.

    I'd hold out and save up for a GTX670. They're better at pretty much everything except GPGPU stuff.
