You have quite the nerve to mention Mac on a gaming forum ;)

Used to be. :) but now they have boot camp. AKA dual boot mac and windows.
Use mac for all purposes other than gaming. Use windows for gaming. Mac laptops have a decent GPU

Also check out the ASUS G Series notebooks - have seen the G2 up close and personal and it's a monster. Also there's the new G70S

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (these wolfdales Pwn Quad cores with their better penryn cores and SSE4 instruction capabiltities. Also, they are fabbed on 45nm tech, down from 65nm, so they consume less power, generate less heat and thus overclock better).
Stock settings: 3.0GHz 1333Mhz FSB (333Mhz*9x multiplier) @ stock Vcore voltage.
Normal OC: 3.6Ghz 1600 MHz FSB (400Mhz*9x multiplier) @ stock Vcore voltage.
Highest recorded stable OC: 4.0Ghz 1796Mhz FSB (449Mhz*9x multiplier) with slight voltage increase.

Mobo: ASUS P5N-D (nvidia 750i SLI MCP/430i MCP):
• 2x (PCIe x16 supports x16 x16 SLI)
•2x (PCI)
•2x (PCIe x1) But one is disabled if a dual slot VGA is inserted into the lower PCIe x16 slot
Supports 4 Ram modules in dual channel mode (DDR2 533/667/800 or 1066 by OCing).
Intel LGA775 200/266/333 Mhz FSB (800/1066/1333 after quad pumping)

VGA: eVGA 9600GT superclocked
nVidia 9600GT with a 75Mhz core overclock and 100Mhz memory overclock.
Expecting to drop another one in for SLI/physX or a newer card like a 9800GTX+ or HD4870.

Ram: 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair XMS2-DHX 800Mhz DDR2 at 4-4-4-12/2.1V (although I reduced it to 5-5-5-15 @ 1.8V)
Exact part number is CM2X2048-6400C4DHX.

Optical drive: ASUS DRW-2014L1T DVD‡R/R Drive
I got it cause it has lightscribe and its SATA.

HDD: Western Digital Caviar SE16 640GB
16MB cache and 320GB platters (2nd highst aerial density of any HDD when I got it) meant that it was only second to the Raptors, but the raptors were 150GB/75GB and ran hot thanks to their 10000 rpm spindle speeds. Personally I prefer getting speed through a lower 7200rpm+higher aerial density.

Power supply: Corsair HX520w.
Nice big 12cm bottom mounted fan keeps ma CPU cool and the multiple switching 12v rails help too... Nice reliable PSU and has dual PCIe 6+2pin connectors and enough SATA/MOLEX plugs for me to fill all my mobos storage ports. Also, it auto detects voltage between 90v and 264v so i dont have to bother with the switch. Also, our house has some slight voltage variation, so the active PTFE form correction is a lifesaver.

Input devices: Getting by with some cheap regulation mouse+KB... Was eyeing the logitech G15 but the older better version is out of stock... As for the mouse, Im eyeing a logitech MX518/G5/G7 for reliablity or a silverstone Raven for a kill3r 3200dpi engine (which is useless till i get a better monitor).

Case: Random case from unity plaza but the PSU is in pieces on my floor. Had to make room for the HX520...

Not mooded in any was except for the presence of fans... First mod will be a 250mm side fan, but that'll require shipping from usa :(... I have an aftermarket CPU cooler but I couldnt get the thermal interface material shipped so i cant use it... And since the processor is OCing fine with the stock cooler, i cant be bothered.

Sorry for the excessive details, but i study this stuff closely...

HP Presario V3700 Notebook PC
Duo Core 2Ghz Each
2 GB RAM
384 MB VGA (Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family)
160 GB Storage (80 + 80)

A Notebook is like a laptop right? I was reading the security manual yesterday and it states -> Please do not place the laptop on your lap.

Why the heck is it called a Laptop then?

you will NOT get canacer!! LOL


cos the intake vents for most laptops are under the laptop. and u'll endup cutting airflow -> overheat -> slow prof -> possible damage to hardware

You're advised not to keep a laptop on your lap because laptops can get pretty hot, and keeping a hot laptop on your crotch is a big no no. :)

I used to have a great system… but now it’s somewhat outdated. The stupid thing about buying a cool system is that it gets “expired” in 2 years. :\ :( (If ur buying it for games, which most of us are) :yes:

Anyway,

Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz
Striker Extreme MB   ;)
8500 GT Silent (512)
2GB RAM… and I got another 1GB sitting on my desk. (3GB doesn’t sound right)
1TB+ HDDs  ???

Oh… and a Vento 7700  8) to put it all in.
