Excellence in PC performance

by on

I have updated my rig yet again, this time to the Intel Core i7 950 level. This CPU is so awesome, everyone should have one. Here are my latest additions to my rig. Can't wait to play GTA IV & Just Cause 2 among many other quad games!

My new rig 2010

by on

I ordered a new PC which I will build myself. I am using some parts I already had like my hard drive and PSU. This PC is about the best you can possibly do as far as price to performance ratio is concerned in the 2nd quarter of 2010. Hope to own in JA with this rig and a perfect silky smooth constant 60 FPS. I am hoping I can unlock the cores on this dual core to make a quad but if not, then this is still an excellent dual core.

I hope to get a few more years from this older rig with the HD 3850 AGP. I'm looking to play almost all Direct X 9.0c games and below at max settings with at least 30+ FPS. I also like emulation on my PC but I won't go into that too much because of Gamespot rules. This computer was given to me and I think I've done a good job extending it's capabilities far beyond what was originally intended, especially with the mobo swap I did. :D
