Vista

I hadn't mentioned this before, but for the past few months, my dad and I have been building a new computer from scratch. At first, we just bought a Cooler Master Centurion case with a power supply. Then we bought a Samsung DVD-RW with Lightscribe technology, and an all-in-one internal card reader. After that, we got an Intel socket 775 motherboard, a 3.2GHz Pentium D processor, and 1 GB of DDRII memory. Then last week I bought a 300GB hard drive and a e-GeForce 7600 GS video card. The last piece came together yesterday when we bought Windows Vista Home Premium. My brother and I had some money so we decided to finally get a wireless router while we were at the store, which would come in very handy for both of our PSP's. As soon as I got home, I put the computer together in about 30 minutes, then installed Vista. The computer was up and running at about 8:00 PM, and I let my dad install some of his programs. Today when i woke up, I decided to download a demo of Halo for the PC, which started downloading when I left for school and was finished by the time I got back. This was a crucial moment because I have never even dared to think about PC gaming because I knew our old computer could never handle it (it has a 1.2 GHz processor, 512MB or sdram, and 40 GB of HDD space, plus integrated video on the motherboard which sucks). Much to my surprise, Halo works flawlessly!:D:D Then I remembered that on the gamespace for Half Life 2 has a link which shows you how your computer will run certain games. I used the tool and found out my PC can run Half Life 2, FEAR, Doom 3, and other games I had always hoped I could play.:D This is the beginning of a new gaming era for me. I probably wont be on GS sometime because I'm going to be downloading and playing a lot of demos and games. Thanks for reading and have a good day.:)
