My fully loaded PC in 2007 – Intel Core 2 with Asus motherboard
This week I got my system team at Work to assemble a super fast PC for me. The machine scored a very impressive Windows Experience Index of 5.5. According to the Microsoft website, the maximum score now for a Vista PC is 5.9 and this machine scores for most of the items 5.9 and only for RAM 5.5. I am pretty pleased!
The Monster PC is loaded with:
- Intel Core 2 Quad Core Q6600 @2.40 GHz Processor
- ASUS P5w64WS Professional Mother Board
- 8GB RAM – Transcend 2GB DDR2 RAM x 4
- NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2 1GB PCI Express Card
- Western Digital 150GB 10000 RPM SATA Hard disk for OS
- Seagate 320GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard disk x 2 in Hardware Mirror/RAID 1 Config for Data
- ASUS 18x SATA DVD Combo
- Sony 18x SATA DVD Combo
- Sony Internal Memory card reader
I got myself pampered by adding to this machine, two wide 22″ LCD monitors (ViewSonic Vx2235w). Each display does a resolution of 1680 x 1050 and I am loving the wide extended desktop with the dual monitors.
Dear Venkat – Did you procure all these components in Chennai? If so, would you mind sharing the shop name/address where you got them? I am interested in building a similar configuration. Also, how much did you have to shell out for this configuration?
Great assembly of the best in the market :-) I was wondering about the cost it took…
You should try this new tweak that appeared today on the website http://www.windows-now.com/blogs.
BTW can you just let me know the difference it makes to a 8 GB workstation.
With 8GB I am planning to run multiple Virtual PCs for Dev & Experimentation.
Another way to look at the Windows Vista index is closer to the benchmark means higher up the organizational value chain one is!
