My oldest brother, who use to be a super-geek and taught me all about building computers, gave me a Newegg gift card as a graduation gift. He's now married with one baby and is a Lawyer....who would have thought!!! He says he bets this will be the last computer I will ever build. He says I won't have the time to keep up with computer technology....because I will be working full time for a year. Then it will be back to school again. Hmm....maybe he's right, but I doubt it...we'll see !!!
But here's the specs of my new computer, I didn't want to post them until I got my video-card....It came today !
DFI LP LT X48-T2R
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz
Thermaltake ArmorPlus(Armor+) VH6000BWS Black
OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
PC Power & Cooling 800watt modular PSU
Heatsink: Noctua NH-C12P
Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS 300GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache
Plextor DVD Burner
And of course the video-card HD4870
The build went very smooth.....well the heatsink was a really tight fit. I overclocked it to 3.6MHz....I think it will go to at least 3.8MHz withhout a problem.
