BUMPITY BUMP.

Well, I ordered a new PC just a few days ago from Mesh, it's a pretty mint PC I got and hopefully will beat the shit out of this PC. Specs are:

Intel® Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4GHz, 8MB Cache, 1066MHz)
Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1, 64-bit
ASUS P5N-MX Nvidia Geforce7050 Mainboard - Intel Core™ 2 Duo/Quad Core MATX
4096MB 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM - (2x 2GB)
500GB Serial ATA Hard Drive with 16MB Buffer
Samsung 22x Dual Layer DVD Writer Super Format +R/-R/RW/RAM
512MB nVIDIA GeForce 9500GT
20.1" Widescreen LCD TFT

Yeah, people are saying the GFX card is fail, but I don't care because I'm not really going to be playing games on my PC like all you guys, I got college coursework to get done, so until then, no PC games for me. :P But around Christmas I'll upgrade since I'll have some monies on me, but with the EMA thing being delayed due to the government making that rescue package, It'll be hard to get a good price.

But yeah, it has massively improved from my current PC I'm using. I probably can play GTA SA, VC and III now, but also some of my old time favourites too.

My budget was £600 or under, if I added a 9600GT It would've went up. And no, I don't believe their are any games that will be shit on their, just cause it's under a 9600GT means it's shit, I mean, Call Of Duty 4 will most likely work on it (Well I need to check the requirements for it).

Vista does suck at some point, I mean if you're a gamer, not every game is compatible, but I'm not going to be playing games on it, I'll be working more of a less, but I will probably play games on it when I have free time.

So at some point, Vista will be fine for me.

Oh and Lonewolf, thanks. :)

Well with that RAM i doubt that it will suck. Everything will be fine oh and i think you need to make a bigger partition for Vista to make it more stable.


Oh and Lonewolf, thanks. :)


Your Welcome :)

same aka [something]: You have never used Vista or you have, but have a shitty computer. I know that, because if you what I said was not true, you'd like Vista more or at least as much as Windows XP.
It isn't 'cool' to say what other people have said you know. Use it and draw your own conclusions.



And though the graphic card isn't great, if you aren't planing to run games, then it will be fine.

Well, 9500GT does seem to look like a decent card in price range. But watching a few video's and stuff, it seems decent when it comes to Call Of Duty 4 and other games, but really, I'm either going to be working on it more than playing it, but I will probably play some games when I'm free and stuff.

And yeah, Vista's actually awesome, in design view it's pretty sweet, and at some point it's pretty swell when it comes to opening some windows up, fade in affect is like ftw.

But yeah, some shit happened. I'm gonna be phoning MESH tomorrow about my order, they said something about receiving a second email about my delivery date, but hasn't even come?

well i mean if your not really playing games a lot, then even an integrated card would be fine.

Plus, a performance increase of up to 3x over the comparable 8 series graphics card

<- from nvidia.com

i assume they mean 3x over a 8500gt ?

the rest of your specs are great btw. despite my userbar vista is actually good when it works. just have had bad experiences with friends pc's that have vista.

Lol, well that aside, I wouldn't be able to do anything in the living room. My parents wouldn't be monitoring me constantly and I wouldn't ever be able to crank up the volume (And I didn't buy a 5.1 set and X-Fi for nothing...). Other then that, they disaprove of forums, MSN would be an absolute pain and I wouldn't be able put on some metal (as they hate it). And.. well... my dad would be watching TV of course.. which isn't all that nice for my experience.


Hang on, I'll make a quick picture. And yes, my desk is messy. I was suppossed to tidy my room today, but I was sort of busy..


Posted Image

Beh... shitty picture. It's sort of difficult to make, since I've placed my desk next to a wall. And yeah, there's a big tower of energy- and softdrink cans to my left.
And for some strange reason, the picture has a horrible yellow shade.. Might have left it on some special mode, or just crappy lighting (as I'm actually siting in the dark. Just switched a light on for this). Probably the first option.. Went to a tennis tournament just a few days ago and had to adjust quite some settings to get good pictures.


PS: To the hardware guys: I don't have fans in that rack yet. I want to buy quite a few soon though and do a light casemod. Black case, with a green LED casefan at the top and the HDD bay. Mod power on switch too. Not sure what to do with the PSU though.. I'll lose my warranty if I mess with that thing.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.
