New Toy 2

Posted by nickxyz on July 15, 2007

It’s alive! As of this afternoon, the new toy is indeed alive and kicking….

Surprisingly enough, the install of all components and drivers was fairly easy and straightforward. At this point, I am not going to install any RAID configs or SLI, as I only have one huge HD and one simple monitor anyway… the setup doesn’t have to be overkill, just because I can….

Currently, two major resource consuming applications are installing and I am anxious to see how they run. On the old machine (granted on a Celeron processor), the apps worked, but were sooooo slow at times it wasn’t even funny any more. One of the newer games even refused to install at all! Tells you what I am running 🙂

My chosen graphics card is the Nvidia eGeForce 8600; while it is a little on the high end side costwise, it is certainly worth every single last cent. I already ran a highly graphics intense game just now and the rendering of the environment, characters is aweseome!

This just as a quick update….

    I’ve been watching you all day (actually, not all day, sporadically, really, as I’ve been out working in the yard, and watching the idiot box, and napping…), and I haven’t a clue as to what you are talking about, here.

    That’s why I married you.
