I pulled the trigger on my UGM

Just an update to the PC Hardware speed freaks and gamers out there. I just placed the order for all the parts for my Ultimate Gaming Machine, or as coined by the Screen Savers, UGM (pronounced uh-gum.) Basically I wanted to take my existing computer and turn it into a home server, so I decided to go hog wild in ordering the new machine. For those of you out there that love the latest and greatest, or are gamers, here’s the list::

  • Coolermaster Wave Master Case
  • Antec 480W True Blue Power Supply
  • Chaintech 9JCS Motherboard (SATA RAID, Gigabit adapter, 7.1 sound)
  • Pentium 4 3.2 MHz Processor with Hyperthreading and an 800 MHz front side bus
  • Corsair TWINX1024-4000PRO 1GB DDR500 XMS4000 ProSeries Memory
  • An ATI Radeon 9800 XT videocard
  • Two Western Digital 74 GB Raptor SATA 10,000 RPM hard drives (in Raid0)
  • One Ultra ATA 200 GB Maxtor Hard Drive
  • Plextor 708A DVD Burner
  • Lite-on CDRW drive

I believe that this should allow me to compete with Declan and his new machine and John in pretty much any twitch game out there! See you on the UTK2K4 servers!
