Planning Field Marshall Melchett

VGA. Do not want

General Melchett is my current PC ride of choice.

Self-build, and crafted and greatly loved: it is a beautiful workstation. Quiet, too.

There have been four significant changes from the initial build: Q9300 processor, 8Gb of DDR2 RAM, NVidia 8800GT video card and most recently a Western Digital Velociraptor 300Gb 10,000 RPM boot/C: drive.

The next leaps are some months away: probably even as late as this time next year:

  • Intel Nehalem
  • DDR3 RAM. 8Gb or more? With some new motherboards, its a 2 banks of 3.
  • Appropriate Motherboard for DDR3 and Nehalem
  • 20,000 RPM Drive?
  • Approprate Video card for the time

The next few months it will be interesting to see the developments in these technology bits.
