I blame Brent

In a moment of weakness last night, I finally ordered my new computer parts. Keep in mind that this is sort of a "budget" system as I will be reusing old parts such as cd drives and the case, well I guess that is all I am using, oh well. Here is what I are getting

Glad I don't live nearby...I keep saying I need to replace my desktop and retire it to be my linux file/web server...but have been able to fight the urge...then again, no one over here bugs me about upgrading either. lol

Exactly what I am talking about. Luckily, I don't have any serious bowlers nearby either...been dying to get some new equipment...but no one is pushing me there either.

Now, if only these damn car guys would move away...and forums would get shut down...I might be able to save some money.

I've got an SLI board and one video card. Gives you the option of adding one later, if you can't afford two now.

yeah mine too. i got Star Trek: Legacy from a buddy and loaded it, ran beautifully, then i loaded some enhancement mods (texture packs and whatnot) and man, it was almost like i was playing a slideshow at some spots. seeing how cheap nate built his for, i think its time to upgrade.

Ya, I've go to upgrade my system too. It's about 3 years old now and with Vista installed, it's showing it's age. That single 3gig processor with 2gigs if ram does the job, but the system's a little laggy for my tastes.

It runs Ultimate farely well. It's a night and day difference between my dual core laptop and this single core desktop. It kicks the laptops ***. Vista scored my dual core 1.8 Turion @ 4.6 and my desktop is 4.3.
