I know this may sound a little bit too specific, but I'm going to buy my new rig this weekend and this is the only thing that is keeping me from finishing the specs.
Right know I'm going to get a:
- Core i7 930 Box 2.8Ghz
- 3x2GB 1333Mhz Corsair
- Asus P6TD Deluxe SLI (Intel X58)
For storage and video card combo, I have two options:
- Option 1:
- 460GTX 1GB
- Intel X25-M G2 80GB + 1TB HDD (7200 RPM)
- Option 2:
- 470GTX 1GB
- 1.5TB HDD (7200 RPM)
I'll be using this computer for gaming (L4D2, Starcraft II, Warcraft III, COD4:MW2, etc) and casual programming (VS2010 WPF/Silverlight/Asp.net, Eclipe, some Android IDE maybe). I will plug it to my 24' 1920x1200 monitor.
Which one do you guys think is going to give me a better performance? They will cost pretty much the same, maybe the HDD setup will be a little cheapier.
