New Computer

W00T! It's awesome!

So, we got his CPU yesterday just before he had to work. He got off work around midnight, but spent his breaks getting stuff started, and looking at the manuals. After he got off work, I helped him with his computer a bit before taking apart my temporary desktop. I pulled the wires off and undid the screws for the Hard Drive and Video Card. Not him, me. :)

We put my Hard Drive (500GB) and Video Card (nVidia GTX 450) in his old case. Here's what's new and awesome:

- The front USB ports actually work (my old case, the front usb ports had a habit of stopping every 15ish minutes)
-It has water cooling for the CPU (quieter than my old computer, only fan you can hear now is the video card)
-It has a 6-core processor (so I can see your camera while streaming mine, and I don't have to exit dropbox or firefox to do so)
-It has 8 GB of RAM (honestly I don't use much over 2, but it's nice to have the extra so I don't have to upgrade so soon)

What stays the same, but is still awesome (aside from the already listed HD and GC)?

-Two monitors (1600x900 and 1280x1024)
-Washable Keyboard
-Fairly old gaming mouse (so I don't have to worry about ruining it with pussy juice, but still have the scrolling buttons by the wheel and the back/forward thumb buttons)

Gentlemen, I give you my "new" computer! What should I call it? Suggestions in the comments!

Edited to add the pics. Please note: left click on the picture and click "view image" if all you see is an icon. Also, I put them in the public camming google drive folder, so you can see them there.

  1. I like the computer. 8gb of RAM is great. I have mine at 16gb just so I can open a lot of Internet stuff and not crash. I would have gotten a 24 inch screen so that you can see more from further away. As for the rest I don't know whats inside to say it will last many more shows down the road.
