Why I recommend not using a gaming pc for normal work stuff? Or why I recommend Raid 0?
Yes, I was curious what disadvantages you saw in that.
Well if your going for maximum performance, overclocking your cpu and video system everything you install will take resources amd in the end slow your system. I use my laptop for Office 2010 etc I load nothing but benchmarking software and my games on my gaming system

OK, undestand. Thanks for the explanation. Since I do not do any gaming, I was just wondering.

I honestly don't think that a few extra applications loaded to a gaming PC really slows it down to the point where it would be noticeable or decrease performance. As long as you weren't running the applications while you played games or had them starting up automatically at boot. However, a tri-SLI setup with a RAID 0 configuration for the average person who might use a computer for basic office tasks would certainly be overkill.

I agree with this.

I use my PC for everything. From Internet, TV, Movies, Video Encoding .. simply everything. (Im at my PC all day everyday )

I also have great deal of different types of software installed and enormous amounts of video,pictures, music.

TBH, I nohestly can't tell any performance difference when gaming, with everything installed as opposed to when it was a fairly fresh install with nothing more than drivers and a couple games.


I think however, many performance issues with gaming and lots installed software comes down to possibly your start up list, and what all is running during your gaming session.
I only have a few things: ATI CCC, Acronis, X-Fi Card, NIS,Zune, Sidebar. (And while some may seem un-needed they are my Must haves )

Beyond that everything else will only start when I manually tell it to.. like Nero, Messengers etc.

Thanks. Just found the site a few days ago. I have a long history with computers in general and PC's specifically. Have written a ton of software over the years, including a good chunk of the Windows 95 multimedia core -- I must have compiled quartz.dll 10,000 times.

Got started as a kid building a wire-wrap breadboard based on a Motorola MC-6800 CPU that I got as an evaluation kit from Moto for free. Went on to build an ALtair 680 S-100 machine, then later various CPM based S100 boxes. After doing ten years in the Navy as an electronics tech (space imaging / satellite ground stations) went to work in a hard disk media research house, doing thin metal film media research, writing process control software. ( I truely hate class 100 clean rooms. Really.)

Went on and got into network administration for several years, Novell Netware stuff, working for a small defense contractor in San Diego. The first network was a whopping six workstations, which grew over a 6 year period to 750 nodes over three cities. Burned out.

Got transferred over to the multimedia systems divistion as a systems integration engineer. Built one of the first digital video compression engines, as well as setting up and running a experimental Intel developed supercomputer based video compression facility.

The same division also did DV compression algorithem development and research under contract to Intel and Microsoft. Windows 3.1 was king, and Windows 95 was in development. Signed many many NDA's and started working with MS developers on their new MM technology (that was *hard* to do, then....)

Went on to a consulting practice for a couple of years, then got a software development job to write database code for a flight test project, ended up at Edwards AFB for about 7 years, sorta went through a career transition to being a pilot and away from the computer science world.

Now I just play with machines, really not in the systems engineering world any more, more in the engineering flight test professional world.

Keeps the bills paid, and they let me fly some cool military airplanes. I own a 4 seat Mooney personal plane, and fly a full glass cockpit Cirrus on a regular basis for business travel. Airlines suck!

This is my benchmarks for my SSDs and my newest HD a 500 Gig WD black drive I do like WD for backup they have not disapointed me yet. I have had this SSDs drive for about 60 days now as my windows 7 system and I'm happy with it's preformance. I'm sure in 20 days they will be half priced. I allways buy high and wish I would have waited for the price to drop. I've done this with about three CPUs and motherboards now.
