New System Set Up And Running

The parts I ordered from, which is the best online store to shop at for computer and electronics, had arrived Thursday. Since then, I’ve been benchmarking and overclocking my system over the weekends. I have been able to overclock my processor substantially. A $200 deal gave me $600 speed without having to pay the $400 difference.

The beauty of this, not only am I going to be able to play the upcoming Half-Life 2 spectacularly, but all my current games run so much better. For example, a favorite game of mine, Rome: Total War, was a total stutterfest at high details, on the old system. Now on the new, faster system, I can play everything with the highest details and with no stutter at all, whatsoever. It brought a tear to my eye.

    It’s hard waiting to change and reading this ain’t helping. :-)….Just kidding.

    Sounds funky Matt, you were well overdue for an upgrade.
