New Gaming RigPosted: 2009-12-16
I’ve been playing Eve for the past year on a spare laptop and a old desktop rig that has a AGP 8x video card (blerg). The desktop PSU went up in a puff of smoke (literally) so I decided to get a new desktop machine.
Here’s what I got:
- Intel Core i7-920 processor (8MB L3 Cache 2.66GHz)
- 4GB DDR3 SDRAM
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 260
- Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit
I’m now able to run 2x Eve clients at 1280×960 in High Detail with Shadows Enabled both holding 60 FPS with the CPU sitting at 19% utilized, amazing. I’ve been doing a lot of station spinning lately! You’ll see a lot of pretty screenshots in my posts from now on.
