    Hey there guys,

    I just bought a new computer a month ago and noticed this section for posting computer related stuff on the forum today.

    So, here's the new configuration -

    • Intel Core i7 920 processor @ 2.83 GHz (4 cores, hyperthreaded == 8 effective cores)
    • Intel DX58SO motherboard with onboard paraphernalia
    • XFX nVidia GT240 graphics card with 512 MB GDDR5 memory
    • 4GB Corsair DDR3 memory @ 1333 MHz
    • 1 TB Seagate Baraccudda

    Tell me what you blokes think...

    Cheers !!!

    My 4GB Corsair memory came in 2 x 2 GB chips... It costed me about Rs. 6400 i.e. About Rs. 3200 per chip... That's a little steep compared to some of the normal brands, but performance wise I have got a real boost because of Corsair...

    It costed me Rs. 65k without the speakers and monitor...

    I basically decided to preserve my old speakers (5 channel surround) and monitor (19 inch high definition LCD) and so I guess I'm getting a good deal otherwise...

    It's triple-channel. Either three or six modules, you can use 1 GB modules too. So it's either 3 GB, 6 GB, or 12 GB, or even 24 GB, on the LGA-1366 platform. You can use two or one module too.

    Have fitted 2 x 2 GB RAM... It works... I don't see any problems... cheers...

    And, Tarun is right, it is triple channel memory, but that doesn't mean that 4GB won't work...

    Just make sure your modules are on the blue-coloured slots on the board.

    That's a mindblowing configuration Monk !

    And Xebex, Alienware, is well, Alienware. Maybe someday I'll be able to afford one.

    xebex !! how much this config costs? we use HP work stations for stress analysis of avionics mounting trays. it takes about 7 hours for completing FEM based analysis. may be with this monster the time can be reduced drastically.
