    my question...does that monster come with the drives RAID'ed or what....i could actually go out, get 8 400gb drives, and put them on my two RAID0 chains for *two* 1.6 tb drives in windows that function four times as fast as they normally would as a single 400gb drive. So a 4x250 chain really isnt all that special. only problem is 8 400gb drives would cost...approx. $1600.

    they're RAIDED, aern't they SATA too? 400GB hardisks, they dont have those yet, do they? noo.
    you'd need at least a PCI-X 133mhz card that would support Dual channel RAID 0 configurations to even touch that kinda data transfer, that alone is somewhere between $300-$500 you'd also need a huge server case, to use 8 Hard disks, so thats another $200, and thats a lot of heat too for 7200RPM (more likely 5400RPM drives though) so.. $20 for fans. total value; more than $2200

    i think ive seen em...i know i saw 300's at CompUSA about a week ago. I was surfing, maybe it was something else...300's are hellla expensive, they wont do any of that rebate crap to bring down the price...heres the link to the 300, if you want to see that.
    <a href=" =305077&pfp=BROWSE">300gb 5400rpm hdd...sweet</a>
    I think for Project G im going to put one or two of those in the central core. we've got a really extensive array of drives already...totalling 700-something gigs out of spare parts. We're hoping to have a total of a terrabyte or two in drives later on. I think I've seen those RAID cards go fro a bit less...let me check....yeah, <a href=" =290126&pfp=BROWSE">here</a> it is. Just get two of those (what I have) and the eight drives.yeah...a hdd coller would probably be smart in that case eh? I should probably do some cutting in my case then, and add some fans. Even at 5400 rpm, thats gonna be a bit of heat. Also, it depends on how they're RAID'ed how it distributes could be RAID0+1, which would bring it to 500gb realised space. In that config, the other two drives would be used for mirroring.

    Show me his addy, i shall sick <i><b>The Project</b></i> on him, and ye shall be avenged for that unmerciful ass-whuppin.

    naww, you'd want a PCI-X RAID card for a setup like that, PCI-X delivers up to 536mbp/s compared to 133mbp/s of regular PCI 33. PCI-X 133mhz Raid arrays would be MUCH faster than if it were on a PCI 32bit RAID card. Maxtor is the only one i know of that makes 300Gb drives, and it runs at 5400RPM and has 2mb cache, which kinda defeates the point, lots of storage, but not fast enough access. thats another thing thats gettin a little outa spec, who needs even 60GB of storage (ok granted, MP3 file users need loads of storage, but who has thousands of MP3 files?)

    wa wa? (ive degraded to a baby noob since the beattin)
    here's the pics of his scores.
    ALU: ~ 55800
    FPU: ~ 35000
    least to say I lied that he beat me by a mear %16, heh it wuz more like 30% at least heh...

    My newest computer consists of the following:

    Pentium 4 2.0 Ghz Processor on Asus 400Mhz FSB Motherboard
    Sound Blaster Live (supports Dolby Digital 4.1)
    512 Megs RAM(Had 768, but my 256 stick went bad )
    Maxor 40 Gig Hard drive(7200 RPM, 2MB Cache) Running Windows XP Pro
    Junk 6 Gig hard drive(5400 RPM) Running Mandrake 9.2
    Nvidia TNT 2 32 Meg Video Card(Yuck! But I'll be getting a Ge-force 4 Ti 4600 after I recover from the hollidays)
    Asound 10/100 NIC

    I work as a tech for an ISP based out of South Eastern Louisiana, so I'm connected through the internet through them. I'm using Adsl(rated 1.5 down by 256 up), but since I'm pretty far from the phone C.O. I'm connecting around 850 down, and 225 up.

    Not exactly a top of the line PC by any definition, but I built it from extra parts and such. Preforms very well, especially considering I have not yet spent 300 dollars building it. Once I put a better video card in it, I think I'll be satisified.

    Hehe...I'm getting a 4x4x12x DVD+/-RW to replace my 40x CD drive...and a TV card.

    Anywho...I found the papers on Project G, Sephiroth; here's the scores, plus comparisons to your boy's Xeons:

    Core: Dual 1800 AMD Athlon MP
    Scaling: 17.8...64.08 P4 equivilent Ghz.
    ALU: 845370...15.15 times his score
    FPU: 441035...12.601 times his score
    RAM: 9.12 gb effective...have no clue on those Xeons

    Needless to say...Project G owns all of your comps, bottom line. I'd like to see you guys even touch those scores. However...we're still using a Riva 128 card for graphics...thats gonna change, especially since we just got AutoCAD. I think we'll invest in a GeForce FX 5950 256mb card just to beat even more ass at this.
