    Hardware Debate | what makes a good Games development Rig

    As many people know there has been the war on computeres between Windows or Mac, how ever to the more indepth users of computers there are many more battles taking place, Intel vs AMD, Nvidia vs ATi, Water vs fan cooling ext.

    The following are some of my opinions on

    CPU Debate:

    Pro's: Hyperthreading, low temp, CPU Degrade reate
    Cons: Price, anoying chipsets to work with

    Pro's: Easy Chipset to work with, Price, Overclocking Capacity
    Con's: Running Temp, CPU Degrade rate

    Graphic Card Debate

    Pro's: PhysX, Driver support, Performance
    Con's: Drivers, overclocking, Price (insome cases)

    Pro's: Drivers, Overclocking, Performance
    Cons's: Temp, PhysX, Price (insome cases)

    Cooling Debate

    Fan cooling:
    Pro's: Price, Efficiency, cooling temp
    Con's: Sound, Wire management priority, overclocking capacity, efficiency

    Liquid cooling
    Pro's: Sound, Overclocking capacity, efficiency, consistant temp
    Con's: Price, Liquid issues (broken pipe ext), Cooling temp.
