My new PC!

Yes finally! After many months of decision making and mind changing and waiting, I have finally completed my new setup, here it is:

Gigabyte K8N SLI Motherboard

AMD Athlon 3800x2 dual core processor

XFX 7900GT 520/1500

1GB Legend Hynix PC3200 Dual Channel RAM

Ultra X-finity 600W PSU

200GB Western Digital 8MB cache Harddrive

Samsung 730BF Monitor

Logitech X-530 5.1 Surround Speakers

Gawd I love this thing. It installed Windows XP Pro in 20 minutes and I have had no trouble putting it all together which has been great. I had to wait 6 weeks for my 7900GT because of difficulty getting stock in but it was worth damn buck I paid for it. It plays Call of Duty 2 Maxxed out 1280x1024 at 45fps and above all the time - even when running through a smoke cloud! It plays Far Cry even more maxxed out and that game looks gorrrrrgeous! I spent a bit over $2000 AUD on it but it was worth every cent. I built it myself so no doubt I saved my self hundreds by doing that. I can't tell you how well it plays Oblivion IV because I'm not into RPG stuff at all. But it plays every new FPS and Racing game out there so well I was shaking the first time I used it. Not to mention the capabilities of the dual core processor. That thing is fast! I can play my favourite game, burn a DVD and have 10 other programs open and it refuses to slow down!

Anyway thanks for reading, I am off now to play F.E.A.R. :P
