Re: Dillemma!

Don't get the Halo 3.. it's only 1 game, the 8800 GT will make ALL your games look awesome.

true, but i would be getting Halo3, Gears of War and Forza2. im still a PC guy but these games are pretty fun and not on PC yet nor will they be anytime soon, all we PC guys will be getting is BioShock (which i already have), and Crysis. Youd think with the similarities between the 360 and a PC that doing 360 to PC ports would be pretty easy, guess not.

im gonna try to con my parents into going in half, since my mom loves guitar hero and liked it better on 360 with the 360 controller than on the ps2 with the ps2 controller (button spacing is closer).

Re: Dilemma!

go for the 360+, they will eventually come out with halo3 on pc and will no doubt make it 360 compatible, but who knows how long that will take.lol.

Re: Dilemma!

OK so i think im going to stick with PC stuff.

What are the best flowing and quietest non-ricer (ie no LEDs) casefans out there? i need:

1) 120mm (for front intake)
4) 80mm fans (2 for side panel, 2 for rear exhaust)
1) CPU Fan (thinking the Zalman CNPS 9700 NT 110mm 2 Ball Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler, however it has a green LED which if its that bright, i will just paint over it or the clear window in the case)



and of course
BFG Tech GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP

do they come with the case? how much? do they light up?

i need two quiet 80mm exhaust fans that will run full time to help expel the air from the zalman cpu fan, 1 quiet 120mm intake fan to bring in cool air to run full time, two super cfm 80mm for the side bay (one blowing on the video card, one blows onto the processor area), and 1 120mm intake fan for when i need additional cool air that will be mounted somewhere. this is what i got planned:

ZALMAN MFC1 Plus-B Black 6 Channel Multi Fan Controller - fan control that doenst have blinky bright *** LED's like my current controller, the LED's are basic and can be covered with electrical tape.

ENERMAX UC-12EB 120mm Case Fan - super quiet and still moves a bit of air, good for a full-time intake fan.

ENERMAX UC-8EB 80mm Case Fan - again, super quiet and moves air. 2 of these on full time on the rear exhaust ports.

VANTEC TD8038H 80mm Case Fan - side bay fans that move 90cfm of air, these would only be turned on when i run games or such.

SUNON KD1212PTB1-6A 120mm Case Fan a second intake fan for additional intake airflow, likely mounted under the pc blowing air up into the processor area (my pc sits on a metal shelf so it would get a good amount of air from underneath)

ZALMAN CNPS 9700 NT 110mm 2 Ball Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler - CPU Cooler.


however the total for all this brought me to a little over 500$ after shipping and whatnot. so there again its like "well theres a premium 360 with Halo3, GH2+Controller, Additional wireless controllers, etc. im gonna call a few buddies and see if they have non-led case fans laying around their office, maybe ill just pick up the video card and cpu fan for now.

Re: Dilemma!

lol I dunno how quiet it is though, and you get all the fans except the side fan. That you can get separate. I'd go with something else then.

Personally, I don't care much for noise or quietness. I'm used to a lot of background noise humming and all.

im weird though, i have to listen to ambient music (usually from di.fm) to get to sleep, its on pretty quiet but i can still hear my current fans, i used to not be able to sleep, as soon as i hit the pillow my mind would wander a million directions, but somehow the background music/beats helps and i usually pass the **** out once i find "the spot" where im comfy. i usually have a t-shirt to cover up the side of the case and i just have my exhaust fan from the power supply running (its controlled automatically) and even that pos has a ****ing LED which lights up half the room.

however during gaming i would rather have airflow than silence which is why i chose those high flowing 80 and 120mm fans.
