Got my credit card yesterday, so the obvious first thing to do was buy a new pc pinch.gif

Specs are

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 CPU, 2.66Ghz, 4Mb Cache, 1333FSB, LGA775
GeForce 8800GTS Overclocked 320MB 320bit DDR3, Dual DVI, HDTV, PCI-E
Gigabyte GA-P35-S3L S775 P35 FSB1333 DDR2 PCIEx16 SATA2 GbLAN ATX VDBIOS
Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 2GB Twin2X PC-6400 DDR2 RAM
Antec P180 Performance One ATX Mid Tower Case Black

Worked out suprisingly cheap, damn prices are good since i bought my last one.

A little worried about the case, the inside is very different but damn it looks sexy...

I'll let you know how it goes when it arrives biggrin.gif

That sounds like an amazing pc.

I have the same case in silver, it is very nice and does have very good circulation. (It is a bit fun to put the power supply in with the extra bracket it comes with.)

It's also really easy to put in HDDs and CD drives. the entire try comes out for the HDD so you don't have to try and squeeze them in between the massive video card, north bridge and memory.

Congratulations!

Don't worry, there will be pics.

It's so frustrating waiting for it to come. I check the status of the order every 20 minutes. I can't help it.. haha. Anyone else find they do that?

Yaup, lol.

I ordered something the other day online and once I got the UPS tracking number, it was bookmarked and checked hourly, lol.

Nah, you can't really judge a pc by that number anymore its complex. Care to explain anymone with superior knowledge?

Well I've had my new PC for over a week now and it has been very fun. No more going to make lunch while it boots haha.

Building it was a little hard, my PSU didnt fit and I had to remove a fan. Also my DVD drive didnt fit with the brackets it came with, so I had to do a really dodgey install of it (you will see when I take pics). Apart from that it's a nice case.

Only bad part is I am running Vista. Would prefer XP but I wanted to make use of DX10. It has been playing up for the past 2 days with programs randomly crashing.. nothing too serious.

And yes, pics still to come. I will get around to it one day.
