My New Computer is Fast

I didn’t get much time to play games this weekend, but spent time setting up my new computer. After a 7 year lifecycle on my old AMD machine ( that’s a pretty long time between upgrades) the old dual CPU motherboard died. Rather than rebuild that machine I chose to move parts over to a new case/motherboard/CPUs/RAM/Video. After about 14hours setup time (had some issues with the BIOS settings and my SATA drive), I’m rockin’!

My new machine’s specs:
Sunbeam Transformer Case (Full Tower)
AMD 64 x2 6400 Windsor clocked at 3.2GHz
Kingston RAM – 2GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard with HD Audio and NVIDIA NForce
XFX GeForce 8600 GT 512MB Video Card
2 Samsung and 1 WD harddrives totaling 570GB
19″ Widescreen BenQ G900w monitor

I can’t even begin to describe the performance increase. It’s clocked 3x faster than my old machine and dual core, so capable of running multiple apps at a time. I must say that I am pleased. 🙂 I’ll have some benchmarks and photos for you soon.

Should be done with configuration within a couple of days and back to playing Call of Duty 4!
