New computer

I've been meaning to get myself a new computer for quite a few months now, my laptop is slowly becoming more and more terrible at running games, and since I'm no going to Japan this summer (which I do each year and where I spent a lot of money), I've decided to use the money and buy a new computer.
It was fairly difficult to try doing at first, I'm more of a software person, start dealing with hardware and I have no idea what is what. But with a help of a friend I managed to find a really good processor (hexcore which was cheaper than a quadcore from the same company), get a fairly future proof motherboard, and other components.

I need to wait for the 15th before the graphics card is sent though because that's not in stock yet, but hopefully by the weekend, I shall have a new gaming computer and be able to play games in a setting that's not where everything is turned off and all the bars are at the bottom.

Though it does mean I have to go though the long process of reinstalling everything..

  1. Well good luck with the new computer! I'm still running a Mac G5 from the mid-90's some days, the graphics are okay but its too old to run the new games. But usually I run on my fiancee's laptop.
