very nice, but why 400GB? you can easily do with 250, or if you really plan on wild stuff, go with a 300GB harddrive. This will save you money, which you can use on a 7900 card. Also 2 gig of RAM isn't really needed, but whatever floats your boat.

great system either way.

The game is playing smooth. Especially with the 2006 mod. Nice.

I launch the game using DXTControl. Direct X Tweaker. I have been using this mainly to force triple buffering:

Try it... I would like to hear from others that have:

Smooth Gaming with Triple Buffering

How to enable Triple Buffering for D3D games?

Here comes the solution - DirectX Tweaker. You can use this tool to force triple buffering via DirectX API. It has nice a GUI and it's simple to setup. Just download the tool and unzipped it. Before you start the application, you'll need .net framework installed prior.
