I bought parts for a new computer last weekend from newegg.com. Most of the parts arrived on Tuesday, and the RAM finally arrived on Thursday. I have it all assembled and most of the software that I need installed. My last new computer was in 2004, so it was definitively time for a new one. My old computer couldn’t run new games like BioShock and Crysis, and I was running short on RAM for things like the Netflix Prize.
So, once again, for historical notes, here are the specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3.0GHz
4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
GeForce 8800GT Extreme 512MB
1TB (2 x 500GB) 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drives
Windows Vista Home Premium
