Finally building my new setup

June 20, 2007 at 1:51 am 5 comments

For a while I´ve had a thought in my head, I definitely need a new computer. My laptop is broke and I´m using my test rig as my personal computer, and that´s definitely not the idea. Now here is the deal, my studio is just a door from my room, what I´m planning is building a really small setup for my room, this will be my daily driver. My testing rig, will be left at the studio where I plan to do all the benching and reviews.

I will be building a small computer coupled with a pair of LCD screens. I have already all the parts ready, but I won´t use the Biostar motherboard I´ve been using in the past, I´ll use a microATX motherboard and install it in a small form factor case. ECS will supply me with a G33 based motherboard, that is their newest IGP motherboard they have. I don´t plan using the integrated graphics, so I´ll install a new videocard, that shouldn´t be much of a deal. On the case, I chose the Thermaltake LanBox Lite, as soon as the motherboard arrives (it should arrive this week) I´ll go buy it.


The only thing I still don´t know is what monitors I will buy. I know I want a pair of 19 inch screens, but still not sure if going widescreen or 4:3, I think 4:3 is the way to go on dual screen, what would you choose?

    Your blog is every time better… Greetings!

    go for the widescreen, I don’t know many people that are still on 4:3 setups

  • […] 2007 The motherboard I will be using in my new setup has arrived. What´s not so cool is that the case I was looking for, is out of stock, the only one available has a window, and I don´t want to buy the one with the […]
