New Rig Being Built - for DimmDrive gaming and editing

3 posts in this topic

Hey Guys, 

 

I wanted to share with you my new gaming rig that I'm building.  I'm a bit disappointed at the speed of the RAM that I got, but I'm excited to test it out.

What do you think? What would you change for the best DimmDrive?  

I'm planning on using this for Adobe Creative cloud - mainly Element 3d, and for interactive video game streaming - mainly DayZ standalone.  

 

I'm very much thinking of getting Tim's CPUCore, but I'm unsure if it will help me..... I'd sure love to set my recording program to it's own dedicated core.
