OK, for the last 6 months I have been using a PIII 933MHz machine, as I sold all my stuff before I moved to get some money together and to consolidate. Well, lately it's getting to the point where it's slowing down my productivity, so I'm upgrading.

As of last night, the new PC has been ordered. Here are the details on my new heavently computer :)

  • Intel Pentium D Processor 930 with Dual Core Technology, 3.0GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache
  • 2GB DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz
  • 250GB Serial ATA Hard Drive - 7200RPM with Databurst Cache
  • 16x DVD-ROM Drive
  • 16X CD/DVD Burner (DVD+/-RW) with Double Layer Write Capability
  • 256MB PCI Express x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) ATI Radeon X600 SE HyperMemory
  • Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio
  • Integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet
  • Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition Service Pack 2
  • 3- Year Next Business Day Warranty

That's one awsome machine compared to your last PC! You'll love the performance difference - you won't know what has hit you! Hope all go well with the new PC and tell us how your liking it when you get it next week.

It's a nice top notch system - looks like it will handle Windows Vista as well which is a bonus, cause as soon as that comes out you will definitely want it!

Yeah I used to have several custom-built rigs, but it will be nice to be able to do more than 2 things at once again :p

I had Vista in mind when customizing it, w00t ;)

Sorry guys, I forgot to mention it is a Dell Dimension 9150. I could have built, but, at least IMO, I got a good deal on it. That, paired with a 3 year warranty, it makes sense to me.

It is shipping later today, should be here Friday

*dances* :D

It was a valid question the intel so called dc cpu's are in fact not true dc cpu , dont need look far to find that information , and any name brand like hp or dell is fine for a company who does not care about throwing them away after 3-4 years , other than that imho they are duds.

Get out of town (literally) :)

Sue them why don't ya !!!

DJ - enjoy the newb PC, burn in some folding@home on it, bust out the good games (if you play em)
