Christmas is coming, and so is the end of the year. I need to spend some money on my business so i don’t get taxed to hell like I did last year. So, I upgraded my office computer.
I’m currently working on a 2yr old HP dv8000 amd turion laptop. it’s had its hay day. The video card on it keeps over heating. I guess it wasn’t meant to be on for nearly 2 years straight. The only time it was off was when i moved, and when we lost power for longer than the battery would last (i don’t even think there was more than one time that happened)
I hit up new egg for a new tower. Back to the tower. Why? Well, I never used my laptop as a laptop at all in the first place. And it’s still good, so i can take it with me on business trips or whatever…. just can’t do anything that requires a lot of video memory like watching movies without it crashing. So, new desktop it is.
Parts coming include vista ultimate, Q6600 quad core processor, 2gb ram, 8600gt video card, dfi T2R (or is it TR2.. i forget) board and a bunch of other random goodies.
With it, I ordered a monitor. I’m still waiting on my parts to build the tower, but the monitor showed up today. Go big, or go home! The Samsung 30″ now sits on my desk. It’s unbelievably huge.
My measly 17″ widescreen laptop on my desk, with my MAudio BX5 powered studio monitors.
With the new 30″ behind it, waiting patiently…
Can’t wait to try this bad boy out!!
