My Spiffy New Computer

Figured it was time to retire the old Athlon 64 model and so I just now built myself a brand spankin' new system.

It was well worth the effort. This bad boy rocks, especially when multitasking or doing CPU-intensive things like converting video.

Did I say cpu-intensive? So far, NOTHING is cpu-intensive for this machine. I'm serious. Ive tried, really tried, to bog it down.

It just sits there looking at me saying "That all you got?"

Probably overkill, as I'm not a gamer and I don't overclock, but the price difference between the system I built and a far lesser one was so small that it made no sense to go uber-cheap.


Self Built
Case - Thermaltake Armor+MX VH8000BWS
OS - XP Pro & Linux (Various)
CPU - Intel Core2 Quad Q9400
MEMORY - 4GB Patriot Extreme Performance

SOUND CARD - Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1
MONITOR - 22" Dell SP2208WFP

Gotta go now.
