With the announcement earlier this week of the new Rocket Racing League a new community web site for the Rocket Racing League has been put together with Telligent's Community Server.
Check out the Rocket Racing Forums over at http://www.rocketracingforums.com/
There is definitely more to come with the site, they are definitely in the infancy stage just like the new racing series!
So all you other developers out there, what would you do if you had a $2k budget and wanted to get the best development/gaming machine you could?
It'll be used for some gaming, CS:Source and Battlefield 2, but mostly for development. Some video processing, image editing (took ~30k photos last year).
I'm currently on a Compaq 2.0ghz with 1gb of Ram and ~350gb of hard disk space (which is 90% full)
Build my own? Buy a system? Buy something from Alienware? Go 64 bit?
nVidia will be my graphics choice, I've got a buddy there, so I stick with those I trust.
I used to be a hardware guy, not so much anymore, don't know the details of what is good anymore.
I figure I need lots of memory, and a fast CPU, but what else do you recommend?
