 My Brand New Rig Is Up & Running
I finally switched to my new rig.

OLD RIG
Mac Pro 1,1
2 Dual Core Xeon Cpu's @ 3GHz
4 GB 600 MHz RAM
ATI 1900 XT Radeon 512Mb PCIe
OSX 10.6

NEW RIG
Mac Pro 1,3
2 Quad Core Xeon Cpu's @ 3GHz
20 GB 800 MHz RAM
nVidia Quadro FX 5600 1.5Gb PCIe
OSX 10.11

Plus instead of the old 20MB/sec WiFi at the Nursing Home
I have a direct modem connect at 150MB/sec.

This things screams on any fps I play now.
Even at max settings.

I'm get a solid 120 fps on any UrT map even when the server is full.
That includes UPTOWN believe it or not.
(I haven't bothered to try any higher because I think my monitor will freak out)

The only exception is when I'm getting lag via the internet or the server.

Now all I need is a bionic left arm to replace the gimpy one I have.
Then I could lose this joystick crap forever.
(I can dream can't I :lol: )

I have the rig stocked whit 4 HD's.
One is for Windows XP.
I used to have a Linux HD on the old rig but I'm hearing Linux won't
boot on this model so I haven't tried yet.
Anyone know which Linux version I should try if I do give it a go ?

Also I'm in the market for a SSD any ideas for a good one ?

Thanks in advance.
(BTW, I will still suck at UrT so don't get your hopes up :roll: )

I'm jealous.

My PC crapped out - mainly the memory and I am trying to decide if I should upgrade my memory (DDR2 - ugh) or upgrade my PC (over 10 years old).

And I'm broke as shit - so I guess I am unable to play for awhile.

F@@K!

I had no idea what these FPS games looked like at maxed out settings. :o

Just for fun I've been checking out some of my old games with everything full on. :twisted:

RTCW 125 FPS everywhere and can even make out what medals the krauts are wearing.
Q3 and UrT the same thing. :D

Q4, Doom 3 and COD 4 solid 60 FPS (can't seem to get them any higher, must be capped or something). :roll:

Shadows, bump maps, vertical sync, anti-aliasing anything I want. :clap:

The card is 4 TIMES as big as the last one.
You should had seen me struggling to get it in.
Sounds like a jet engine when it starts to warm up.

The SSD is due to arrive tomorrow so it'll be time for a fresh OSX install. ;)
Which couldn't hurt, who knows what's lurking on this drive with all the downloading and installations I've done. :shock:

So I shouldn't need to update / buy a newer rig for a while now. :thumbup:
