You can lecture me about Nvidia vs ATI and why I should have gone with the ATI 5800 series which has Eyefinity technology, but I already had that debate when purchasing this box. I went with the Nvidia card because I won’t really want to play one instance stretched across screens and the Nvidia card came with the Dell XPS series. I didn’t want to go with the Alienware uber-watercooled machine from Dell, which does have the ATI 5800 series as a video option.
Looking back I’ve come a long way since the machine that I cut my computing teeth on…
- 486 DX2 @ 50MHz in Turbomode
- 16 MB RAM
- 540 MB HD partitioned into two with DOS 5.0 and Unix
