New PC!

Filed under: Personal

Yep, that's right, I finally retrieved my wallet from under the fridge, prised it open, and splashed out on a brand new PC.

The old one wasn't a bad spec to be fair, it just had this bizarre ability of not turning on if you looked at it funny.  Or simply not tipping your hat and saying "Good day" when walking past it would cause it to beep randomly like one of those 1980's mobile phones.  Maybe its due to the fact that it's spent the last two years in sub-zero conditions inside our conservatory?

Anyhoo, the new one is a DELL Vostro and comes with a 2.33GHz C2D 1333FSB Processor and 2GB RAM.  When I received it, I tried running World of Warcraft and whoa there nelly! Jerkovision.  So, I had to purchase a new 430W PSU and a sweet Sapphire Radeon HD3850 Graphics card.

With the upgrades, I get a steady 75FPS in WoW - just got to wait until April now to get my hands on a copy of Call of Duty 4.  Then I can really push the card to it's limits.
