Hi all. A few months ago I posted on this forum asking for help with stuff, and later asking for help about building my first PC. I haven't been on for ages, but thank you for the great response I received to my questions :) I have built my rig, for those of you who are interested I used:
ASUS P5B-Deluxe WiFi Ap Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
BFG Nvidia Geforce 8800GTS 640MB
2GB OCZ PC6400 Platinum Revision 2 800MHz RAM
600W Enermax Noisetaker ATX 2.0
Western Digital SE16 250GB SATA-II HDD
Antec Solo Case
A Dual Layer DVD+/-RW Drive (I've forgotten which brand :P)
I'm running this on a Hanns.G HW191DP 19" Widescreen (ace budget monitor: for £150 you get 1440 by 900, an extremely bright display, a decent picture and DVI input. I use a Logitech G15 Gaming keyboard and a Razer Copperhead 2000DPI mouse.
It's a great rig, thanks for all your help!
Now I have some more questions :P
Firstly, what's anitroscopic filtering (it might be spelt "antroscopic")? How does it differ from bilinear/trilinear filtering? For that matter, what are bilinear and trilinear filtering?
Secondly, should I have colour filtering enabled?
Thirdly, some questions about water cooling. How difficult is it to fit? How much can I expect to pay for a decent kit? How well does it work? How large is the risk that it will rupture and screw up my rig?
Fourthly, a bunch of stuff about overclocking. How do I overclock? What sort of temperature can I risk taking my kit up to before I'm shortening its life? Is it worth overclocking?
Thanks again :D
