I finally ordered a new fucking computer.

W00t.


Gigabyte motherboard nforce2
Athalon XP, 3200+, 400mgz fsb,
raid 0 sata
1 gig DDR corsair ram (2 pieces)
ATI saphire radeon 9800 pro, 128mg ram

Not the fastest thing ever built, but not fucking bad.

When do you get it?

Hedron

Dunno. Depends on how fast they build it, I guess. I think they said 10 days on the site, and maybe 3 to ship. Couple of weeks?

Hedron, where did you buy it from?

Nice, yer gonna love the difference in Continent load times. That is very close to my current rig.

Abit NF7-S Rev2 board
Athlon XP 2600+ Mobile (overclocked to 2.5GHz and 400fsb)
Raid 0 SATA
1GB Kingston Hyper-X DDR 3200 @ 2-2-2-6
ATI Radeon 9600 Pro

While my 9600 Pro is a little dated...its also still a viable vid card. It's standard clock speeds are 400/300, and I have it overclocked to 550/350...so it is holding its own pretty damned well.

Yea Hed, where did you buy the thing?

I agree with you on one thing.

You have the power and might of a mouse.

Long live Lemmywinks.

BTW, Hed....I'm gonna be in town the nights of 5/3 and 5/4 if you want to go drinking or whoring. I don't have any work commitments this year, but 5/3 is best for me. I'll e-mail you my cell #.

Hed has already shoved his mouse up me once! My mouse is being incredibly gay still, and when i called Dell they had me reboot like 69398726982368726 times and it happened to come back, so when it goes out again im gonna bitch at them and tell them to give me a new fucking computer ! :p

Before i do that tho i'll reformat. How often do you guys reformat? Haven't reformated since i got the computer a couple months ago.

Maybe once a year unless it starts acting funny.

(and I don't use that machine for anything but gaming anyway)

Stop reformatting. Use Ghost.

Norton Ghost™ 2003 protects your data from computer disasters. The intuitive Windows® interface makes it easy to create regular backups of your hard drive. You don't even need to make a boot disk. File restoration is simple from the comprehensive disk image. For small businesses, 5- and 10-user packs are also available.

It's also a really really shitty movie.

Basically:

Setup your PC just the way you like it. Take a "image" of it. Anything goes wrong, don't like the way it's running, etc. Re-image the PC with the image you took. Your PC will be just the way you like it again.
