Got ~1k or so to spend.

Only buying Motherboard/CPU/RAM/hard drives.

I have 2x GTX 460's that I'll be keeping, a Corsair TX850, and a Cosmos 1000 case. (Along with the other peripherals) I have a 7200rpm 2TB "storage" drive I'll be using, but I want to get an OS drive or two (for RAID 0).

So for $1,000... CPU+Motherboard+RAM+HDD for a system that will run pointer scans fast as hell? Basically, what's the bad-assest CPU for Cheat Engine? I'll definitely be running 16GB or 32GB of RAM.

Can also consider an SSD if that would make a big difference.

Any thoughts?

disk is only used if you dont have enough ram. since 4/8gb ram is enough for
most games that wont make a difference.

scanning relys on cpu speed, but even more on ram speed, since cpu cache is relatively small.

I can scan any game (ex. bf3 or d3) for unknown, then changed, in less than a second with my pc. (and its relatively old, Q6600 4gb ram)

So where do you have scan-speed problems right now? (in what programs)

edit: If you are really having problems with scanning speed right now I think your problem is that some parts of the target program or CEs buffer are stored in the swap file (how much ram do you have right now?)

IMHO, Buy a decent computer with Windows xp installed.
I bought a high end computer. And installed Windows 7 32 bit. And my computing life screwed up.

A fast harddisk is recommended for scan options that return a lot of results. (like pointerscan)

Also, if your cpu supports intel-vt you can use that to bypass integrity checks, debug protected games, etc...

I don't have any mighty harddisk. Still I don't have any difficulty using pointer scan. Nor does it takes too much amount of time.

But CE in general consumes lot of memory. Can You do something about it?

Yes, buy more ram and get the 64-bit version. I have no intentions of making it use less memory, quite opposite, I plan on making use of more and more in memory databases and lookup tables for speed improvements (If the pointerscan didn't gobble up so much memory, it'd be a lot slower)

i5 750, 8GB DDR3 1600. Using 64-bit version.

Scanning/rescanning is very fast, yeah. I'm more talking about pointer scanning speed.
