Building a new PC

I'm building a new PC, my PC is really getting too outdated to play a lot of the newer games well. The PC I am using really was not built for the sole purpose of gaming, but the PC I'm building now, will be a pure gaming beast :twisted:. Here are the specs. Oh and yes I will overclock it :P.

  • Asus P5E X38 Motherboard
  • 2 gigs of A-Data Extreme DDR2 800 (x2 1 gig sticks)
  • 2x Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 3870s
  • Corsair 750 Watt PSU
  • Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
  • Western Digital Raptor X 150 gig hard drive (I plan on getting a second one eventually for RAID 0)
  • Thermaltake Armor Full Tower case in black
  • Soundblaster X-Fi Xtremegamer
  • Zalman CNPS9700 CPU Cooler
  • Lite-On CD/DVD burner w/ lightscribe

To Gamespot

Firing Jeff was completely unacceptable! I cannot believe he was fired for writing a honest review! He did his job, and did it well. He wrote a critical review and pointed out the many problems that the game has! It's outright disgusting that he was fired for this! Gamespot you have RUINED your credibility for many gamers! How do gamers know Gamespot's reviews can be trusted if they know that reviews are influenced by advertisers and money? It's going to be extremely hard to redeem yourself Gamespot, what has transpired is completely unacceptable! I hope Jeff gets paid more and treated better than he ever did at Gamespot at wherever he plans to work next.

Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon

Not too long ago I upgraded my Ubuntu installation from 7.04 to 7.10, so far I have been rather unimpressed with the update. Not much was added and it is buggy. I might actually revert back to 7.04. There have been a lot of users complaining about various problems with 7.10 besides me. So if you have Ubuntu on your computer and don't have 7.10 yet, I would advise you don't install it just keep 7.04 till 7.10 is made to be more stable.


I installed Ubuntu today. I wiped out my entire Windows installation after backing up the files I wanted. Of course this doesn't mean I'm done with PC gaming :). I will run some of my games with Cedega, and I will probably set up a dual boot config sometime.

Halo 3 Legendary Editon

So I got the Legendary Edition of Halo 3... I reserved it in December of 06 (I know :P). It was really worth the $130.. the helmet is sweet and the extra DVDs are awesome.

Guitar Hero 2

I finally got Guitar Hero 2.. Ever since it was released on 360 I kept saying I was going to buy it but I never got to it till now. It was expensive, but definetly worth the money, one of the most fun games I have played in a a while. It has some good music too.

Forza Motorsport 2

I rented Forza Motorsport 2 for the 360 yesterday, so far I am very impressed, and that's saying somthing, considering normally I don't like racing games, but this ones very cool... I love how you can customize every car so much it's awesome :).

PSP Chicago Open (paintball)

I was at the PSP in chicago for 2 days last week! It was my first time going to a PSP event and I have to say I loved it! I was disapointed that X Factor won though, I was hoping for the Ironmen to win after Dynasty got out of the tournament.
