Single Status Update
Ook. Ook. I bought a new rig a few days ago. Been trying to get the internet to work properly on it, and what do you know? It decides to work all by itself one night. At first I was like, "OMG use 7 grand and build sexy pimp machine!"
Then I decided it was way more feasible to budget myself to 2000 of those canucks bucks. Anyhoo, I ended up with
A funky chinese seethrough Xion case with blue light
Amd Athlon 64 2.2ghz processor
Asus PCI express motherboard with built in sound card
Free Half Life 2 with purchase of processor and motherboard
1gb of Ram
Nvidia Geforce 6600GT 128mb video card
200gb HD for my newfound pirate emporium
Wireless network card - it's a real tempermental cunt, but it works now.
5.1 surround sound headphones - at $57.00 cdn these things are fucking nuts, you have to set the volume VERY low, or you will lose your hearing
DVD writer - see 200gb HD
1.44mb floppy drive - yes I'm a putz
17 inch LCD monitor - no ghosting! hazzar!
Black, Joe blow Logitech Keyboard
Some crazy ass gaming Logitech mouse - ultra high sensitivity, very fun with FPS
After cursed PST - 7% Provincial Sales Tax and GST 7% Goods and Services Tax, it came out to exactly $2005.86
Now it's not one those crazy ass dual core computers with the $800 GFX card, but it's a huge step up from the Ye Olde Shitbox PII.
