So about a month or two ago I picked up a new PC, an ASUS to be exact. I heard they were somewhat decent and so far it hasn't disappointed in the least. The thing is a beast too with a i7 3.40Ghz, 16GB of RAM two 1.5TB hard drives and a 1GB Nvidia Gtx 560 Ti. It cost a pretty penny at roughly $1,500 not including one modification I had made to it.
I had a 850W Thermaltake Black Widow power supply put in, in place of the laughable 500W that the rig initially came with. I consider it a solid investment.
Apparently I was just in time in replacing the old computer too, I took it out and tried to hook it up to the monitor and get it to operate so I could delete everything on it in preparation for selling it to a used second hand shop(Hey money any way you can get it, right?).
But as soon as I got it hooked up the thing died faster than a avid Mcdonalds lover having a heart attack, so much for that plan I suppose.
The rig did have a minor problem, I had it shipped to store and it most likely was damaged in that process(the faceplate is cracked and a piece of the side is missing. Nothing terrible, but unsightly especially when you pay $1,500 for a new rig.) Anyway the store told me they didn't have anymore of that model in stock to take a faceplate from. And that they had contacted the manufacturer and they didn't have one either.
So they settled for knocking $225 or so off the price of the PC, which I have to say is pretty good for just a busted faceplate.
Anyway, in short...now I'm wandering around the net telling my friends "Hey GAIS look at mah new rig!!" swinging it around like a certain body part I could mention. Only none of them want to hear it, and they're all tired of it. So instead I'm telling you folks that actually read the tripe I write(That's right...all three of you.)
Off to enjoy the thing somemore, heh.
