My Computer

My Computer

  • Motherboard: Asus M2N4
    • Supports AMD socket AM2 (Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon 64 / Sempron
    • SLI Support (Takes advantage of the increased bandwidth of the PCI Express bus architecture and allows two video cards to efficiently work together to deliver nearly 2X performance!)
    • SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, RAID 5
  • Video Card: NVidia Quadro FX1400 PCI-E 128MB (SLI compatible)
  • CPU: AMD X2 4200+ (Retail version to get AMD’s approved fan and heatsink to get a longer warranty)
  • Case: Antec P180
  • Power Supply: ANTEC TP3-650 (650 Watts SLI compatible)
  • SATA Harddrive: Western Digital Raptor 74GB with 16MB buffer size (Very fast harddrive but a little noisy)
  • RAM: 2 GB RAM PC2-4200 DDR2 (Max 8GB)
  • Monitor: JW-199DPB 19″ Hanns-G LCD
  • Printer: All-In-One HP PSC1410 which is fully Linux compatible.

The motherboard doesn’t come with Firewire (IEEE 1394) interface but the case has a front firewire port which would be useful if I ever add a PCI firewire adapter

Possible upgrades:

  • More RAM
  • Second identical video card and use SLI (or a better card)
  • Another Raptor harddrive to use RAID capabilities
  • upgrade processor
