So...

As you can tell i haven't posted much this week. That's because several reasons. Reason one is i have been finishing finals for school this week. I will graduate next Friday with an AAS in computer network support technology. Which it feels good to finally get my degree. I am currently hunting for an entry level tech position to begin learning the ropes. Because classroom training will never = actual work experience.

The other reason is I have been working on getting parts together to build a new computer. I finally ordered them yesterday and according to my wife they arrived this afternoon. Which means tonight i get to build my first computer. Its going to be a mesh of an old pc with new guts. The only parts I'm re using are my dvd/cd drive, an old raptor 1.5gbps sataI 80 gig HDD, and a 400w PSU With case. Originally this hammy down system had Pentium 4 processor 2.8 ghz, 2gb ddr ram, and a x700 ati agp graphics card.

I'm basically replacing all of those parts with an AM3 biostar board with 1x pcie 2.0 x 16 slot 59$, an anthalon II x2 240 2.8 ghz AM3 socket processor 49$, 2x2 gb ddr3 1333 ram 100$ , and a biostar 4670 512mb gpu 60$ . This gives me a highly upgradable machine that should play wow so much better than my laptop which has a 1.66 core duo processor and integrated video. Ill be installing windows 7 64 bit and hopefully wow tonight. IF i get wow up and running you guys will definitely get updates on my FPS and general gleeful thoughts of finally being able to see wow max graphics.

  1. While actively playing Runescape, I usually buy swtor credits from reliable web-sites. The principal intent of getting gold from this website is, the website is trusted and provides cheap swtor credits even although in the swtor credits market.
