Yeah I feel ashamed, I'll now have to cry myself to sleep tonight.

/not enough RAM to allow for a party system

People can set up a system configuration that will give them the answer they want, but across the board of systems, user game options, hard drives, DVD/bluray speeds/ GPUs and CPUs options. Doubling, tripling or quadrupling memory channels will reducing loading times, reduce network card HDD processing latency and help games to handle worst case frame-rate scenarios better than systems using single channel or double channel. It will also improve CPU physX/havok handling in many games.
And aren't they the same people that told consumers to disable their pagefile system and use 16GB of ram according to EG_user:Atari?
This is how I picture Vizzini.|
JUST SHUT UP TALKING SHITE.|
Edit; @ Vizzini obviously

He's qualified on the subject though - he's said several times in many face-off comments threads that he's a games programmer by trade.|
Managed to say that in between breaths whilst he's dismissing everything DF have pointed out...
..."EG are biased, third partys are bribed by MS, Witcher 2 actually has shit graphics look at the alpha omega vortex glamourisation on that tree in the background, Gears 3 graphics are actually shit, a £4000 workstation is the best bet for gaming, ps3 was made by god himself" etc etc
He is to gaming what Jimmy Saville was to children.
He totally called it

I may just give up and use my PS3.
Thanks for the kind words, pictures and video people |
Maybe the reason that certain Windows PC configurations don't exploit the use of multichannel RAM now for games,is too much memory per module, as the games are i386 apps fenced within 4GB limits on 64bit Windows 7. That will mean the app will fit perfectly within the size of just one channel's module in most PCs, unless the motherboard device drivers force a multichannel mapping which other than Lenovo, HP or Dell OEM customised professional Oses(for workstations) probably isn't likely.
Only the other day I was fixing(&tweaking) a friend of friend's overclocked/watercooled tri channel system(Asus P6t Deluxe) as a favour, and was shocked at how badly the version of Windows was configured on this prebuilt Cyberpower PC.
It seemed very unresponsive using generic device drivers for important motherboard features, and the SAS RAID driver wasn't even installed. All OS windows were configured to run in the same blocking process.
The two fast samsung SATA3 7200RPM drives were configured like it was running Windows 3.0. The primary drive in use with multiple mount points (drive partitions/letters) reducing C: drive throughput. The performance monitor reporting quite high levels of memory errors (dirty pages in OS services), and even the pagefile was residing on the primary drive, when a perfectly good drive existed on a separate SATA channel to increase performance.
I'm surprised in any way by tomshardware findings, maybe windows 7 home is really that bad that they can't force the system to exploit the extra memory bandwidth of dual or trichannel memory, but Wine on Linux certainly does, and I suspect this will be an improvement with Windows 8 handling memory striping more aggressively, as they will be making a big push with Windows 8 to get away from 32bit address space games allowing bigger memory use.

He totally called it
It's like he is oblivious to what any of the posts are saying yet he acknowledges them prior to posting yet another round of utterly boring nonsense.|
Can't wait for Windows 8's more aggressive approach to memory striping though.

Actually, it was bricked went it arrived, for more than one reason.
Looked like someone not smart enough to know what they didn't know () had altered bios settings outside of tolerance and had, had a try at fixing it themselves first, without success.
It had a nasty cheap wifi card probably shorting the PCI bus, as it hadn't been seated fully(and not screwed in). Other important screws were missing in the case, and the reservoir wasn't even secured. Worse yet mobo cables in the system were barely making connections, in spite of a excellent cable management system. Naturally when I get involved in sorting out someone's computer I sort and enhance everything that can be, short of an OS reinstall. Just like I would professionally, or for my own personally needs.
I have received or await delivery of the following:|
Lian Li PC-C60
ASUS P8Z77-M Pro
8 GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz Low Profile
Samsung 830 (256GB)
Be quiet! SilentWings2 140mm
AcoustiPack ML 3-layer 7mm
AcoustiPack ML 3-layer 12mm
Asus BC 12B1ST
I'm going to order the GPU tonight or tomorrow but I think I'm going to go for the
Asus Direct CU GTX 670 instead of the 660Ti
I just need to order a 360 Pad for Windows and a new kb/mouse.
Any suggestions for gaming kb/mouse that is living room friendly?

It's got laptop like keys, but I prefer them to the full standard high profile keys and they work fine for gaming with my old withering fingers as well as helping the keyboard to remain neat and tidy when not in use.
