It will indeed require more computing power, especially if you use its graphics.

Boring, Rainy Day

I feel crazy for heading to the airport for no reason on a boring, rainy day (I have this week off), but it was worth it, even if I only got to capture one landing. Usually I'm afraid of getting my camera wet, but today I was so bored that I meticulously cut out a plastic bag to custom fit my camera...

Also, you have to keep in mind that you have to have at least two physical processor cores to run a 64-bit OS.

To get above that, requires VISTA.

Thats only XP x86. XP x64 can do the same.

Ultra? I'd say it's just right for your system. However, if you add any more peripherals, you might want to start looking at higher wattages. For now, the 600W should be no problem for your computer.

What happens is that 32-bit operating systems only have enough memory addresses for 4GB of memory, simply because during the design of 32-bit OS'es, they never envisioned with people having more than 4GB of memory. However, as we all well know, nowadays, we have graphics cards' memory, and other per...

I somewhat disagree with TFish; you can never have too much power in a PSU. I'd go with nothing less than the TX750. Since your cost is already in the $4K range, I don't think it'd hurt to just go with the 1000W version. As an added bonus, you get bragging rights.

I think your GTX 295 is an excellent choice. I'm not sure about Enermax PSU's, as I've always felt like they were on the 'cheap' side. Lastly, I'd wait for Windows 7 as it's coming out in a couple months than plop down $180 for Vista Ultimate now.

Everything else looks excellent.

You can't see the difference from 25-50 frames per second. As your eyes and gray matter won't accept anything more than 25 FPS. I've always disagreed with that and still do. Like I've mentioned before, I personally see a significant difference between 60FPS and 25. Maybe not above 60, but definitel...

Yeah, I haven't done the jetwash in a really long time. Now that I look back, it doesn't seem very realistic; I agree with RD that it looks blotchy. I guess you could try using motion blur depending on which way the jetwash is traveling to make it more 'streamlined' instead of blotchy. More like: ht...
