thanks for welcome and the info
i know either way it will be a bit of money for it, but both me and my significant other are avid players of EverQuest 2 and always looking for ways to help the game run a bit smoother. We arnt rich so even a couple hundred dollars on upgrades puts us in a tight pinch for the month. But both of us having modorately priced gameing rigs it seemed like a good idea to have a dedicated HD just for the game and without the fairly high price tag of going raid HDs or bleeding edge GPU.
I myself am constantly trying to learn new ways to tweak machines to get the most out of them without much money to go on. I am not hugely interested in overlocking as if i were to make a mistake and cause any perminent damage to the hardware it would take me months to round up the funds to replace the damaged unit. I am sure there are plenty of others like me too.
oh and if so inclined i would also greatly apprciate any thoughts on what else i could do help overall performance. Already try to keep up to date with the latest drivers for my gear at least to my knowledge which i admit i could have made a mistake or two since im admittedly no expert.
Heres my system specs:
Mobo: Asus P5K/EPU
CPU: Intel quad core Q6600 2.40 GHZ (Kentsfield)
GPU: 2x ATI Radion HD 2600XT (512 DDR3 each)running crossfire with dual bridges
RAM: 4 Gigs DDR2 800 PC2 6400
HD: Western Digital 640 Gig 7200RPM
Case: Antec 900 (love it!)
PSU: OCZ 700W (of course crossfire ready)
My girlfriend has a similar build so hopefully any suggestions would be beneficial to both of us. If having a full list of her specs as well would be useful let me know and ill get them ASAP
Thanks so much for all the help
