Bragging rights

Post by Collector » Fri Oct 10, 2008 1:39 pm

As long as we are doing bragging rights, let me show off my new PC. It is based on this motherboard with this CPU and 4 GB DDR3 RAM (though I am waiting for the 2nd stick to be restocked) and this case. I cheaped out on the graphics card, but that will be my next upgrade. I recycled my drives from my old PC and have about 1.5 terabytes storage. The "Vista Experience" rating goes to 5.9 for each of the different categories of CPU, graphics, memory, etc. performance. This new machine pegs out at 5.9 in every category except graphics.

I pretty much don't like you, right now.

Very NICE indeed :P Congrats!

I too have a habit of recycling drives and use external drives too - all in all I have about 1 TB.
That will change soon, have my eye on this: http://www.mediaatlantic.com/product.php/201484/1384/
I can get it for $175.20.

Edit: Scratch that, I just purchased it :D

Collector, I envy you even more now than I already did.

I had already planned to don a black catsuit, fly my supersonic jet plane to Collector's house, park it quietly, sneak in, steal all the games I want, and sneak out again.

Now it seems I will have to add Collector's computer to my swag bag. I may need an accomplice with major muscle power.

I'm sorry. I am stuck on the above comment - and can't stop smiling.

You made my night, dear. :P

Ah well, you could be dreaming of worse things...

... such as finding your beautiful computer simply... gone.

Well... what sort of biceps do you have? This is important! We can't afford to drop this wonderful computer! <grin>

Possibly, possibly...

Collector, what do you think? Will that be enough muscle power to shanghai your computer?

Just want to point out I think that's the first woman with muscles that big that's actually attractive... but I bet when she talks she's got a deep voice... that's always very, very disturbing.
