These specs are old as I am now running dual cores 275s, and the scores are faster now than when this was originally posted. Still, SLi seems pretty popular as all the submissions indicate.

Congrats! Nice system.

Congrats ! that Doom3 score is astonishing !

I would have expected the opposite, but moving to dual cores actually brought the score up another 11 fps, who would have thunk it since the 275s are 2.2 ghz and my former 252's were 2.6ghz?

Definitly faster although.

Current love interests:
Doom 3 & ROE, Far Cry 64, and Riddick 64

eye candy maxed at 1600x1200 - I'm going back and "re-discovering" some of my older games. :cool:

Congratulations! :nana:

Wow, your rig is, as it always was, mind blowing. :eek:

So did nVidia give you anything as a prize? (I don't know what they could give you that would improve your rig though...)

That rig is just insane! Congratulations on the amount of work put into that. :)

05-30-05, 07:15 PM
Holy ****.... I hope I have that kind of money to burn when im out of college :D Id sooo build an all out system like that :D

Older games? Check out the not-too-old, good-looking and fairly hi-poly Unreal2... I don't know if SLI works with it, but I'm sure it probably looks pretty sweet @ the higher rez's and IQ settings...

Did ya win anything for the rig of the month? If not bah!

Nice system though...

got a 3dmark03 or 05 score? btw in the summary on the site it says "additional 16MB of ram" should be "16GB"?

05-31-05, 04:00 AM
Congrats :)

Jay caps it off with an additional 16 (yes, sixteen) MB of ECC memory plugged into his motherboard.

whehehehehehe :D

Just curious... but how much did you spend on all the parts that are in that case? Its sweet... but WOW... im guessing you have to be close to $10,000.

Just one question about a thing that bothers me. Since a single 6800 Ultra can score around 42fps in the default Doom 3 timedemo, at 1600x1200/4xAA/8xAF, shouldn't 2 cards score a max of 80-84fps? That 141fps looks weird. Was the score derived from the default timedemo?

1. No, Nvidia did not provide any 'prizes'.

2. I can't comment on how much I spent - it would only invite more questions

3. Jakup - Yip, saw your submission, real cool. We need to know if there really is a scoring critaria other than "look at the purty lights". :)

4. My default score with 1 Quadro was 69fps, so really don't see what's strange with my Doom score SLI. I was actually disappointed. Please remember that I also run all my benchies through a ram drive and the tyan board is a dual 16x SLI lane system
I have provided screenshoots many times in the nvnews forums on this as well as the HL2 scores.

5. Yes, its 16 GB of ram, they typo-ed

6. Running dual core 275s now, the machine has a whole new personality..... :cool:

I only have one word for you man


Damn nice rig though.....

05-31-05, 03:59 PM
Holy mother of insane rig of the months. Hot Damn! :eek: :eek: :eek:

I'm looking forward to see more systems with a pair of dual core processors.

These would silence those people who say that it will take a few years for the PC to match the power of next gen consoles. :D

Words can't describe how "insane" your rig is, Venturi.

/me fainted.

06-01-05, 11:35 AM
damn you Venturi...

you are making all of our PC's tuck their tails between their legs :)

06-01-05, 12:41 PM
I love Venturi's attitude. The hell with world hunger and the kids picking up trash for food around my complex. I bet you can talk to alians with that thing. :p

is the boot time near instant on a system like that?

06-01-05, 03:51 PM
Wow Venturi nice machine. I noticed you live right by me. I am in the Hampton Roads area also. Care to come over and make me a machine like that? I'll supply the beer ;)

I live close to him also along with OWA. If he comes to my house I'll give him supper along with beer. :D You can come over too Betterdan and bring some more beer. Maybe OWA can bring some wine.

I wanna come over :(
