I added an EVGA GT 710 2GB graphics card and a BenQ GW2270 21.5" 1080p LED Monitor. In the mail is the AMD Athlon X4 845 Quad-core (4 Core) 3.50 GHz Processor. Just taking the graphics load from the CPU has boosted speed considerably. Can't wait to add this new CPU. Later, I will upgrade to 16 GB RAM and bigger HD's. I have the two internal HD's in a Windows RAID stripe 5.

Minesweeper will be faster than ever !!! I may even try Tetris.

There has been zero hardware failures so far (going on 2 years).

Yes, 40 whole diskettes in one box and you don't have to swap them. Can you imagine?

If you like sci-fi movies, try Lucy with Scarlet Johannson if you haven't already.

They aren't going to stop until the MacChip is implanted in everyone's head with a direct link to Langley, VA. And people will walk into walls a lot. Oh wait, they're already doing that.

Wow. Before my first computer in '85; a Mac Plus. 1 megabyte RAM, 1 floppy drive, 9" B&W builtin monitor: $1600. I added a 40 megabyte (!!!) HD for around $400 (!!!). I wish I didn't sell it.

You, on the other hand, have some nice photos. Did you take those with a DSLR or an iPhony?

Oh, and if it ever comes back to life, I will put Ubuntu on it.

Will do. Might just be a "radiator" to get my feet wet lol. Sorry, I couldn't help it. :D

What I really want to do is the real deal with hoses and reservoirs and stuff. Researching is half the fun.

Yep, there it is. You got it. $2500 new in 2011. Still... fixing myself a possibility though. I have to take it the "genius bar" for an eval. Thinking of selling as is if I can't fix. Thanks.

How do you like the Asus? I used to use them exclusively but thought I'd try something different. I'm real happy with my Gigabyte. Next PSU might could be Corsair.

I originally bought a $20 "Apevia Venus Series" 450w for this but I chickened out when I read someones review that it went down in flames literally. Maybe true; maybe not who knows but not taking that chance. So what do you think I used to build and test most of this PC while I waited for the new EVGA? Yep, Mr $20 and it worked just fine. It probably would be OK if I just left it in there. But anyway... I have it for backup and testing.

Yes, they could. When I opened them in Lightroom, I was aghast. Better pics next time I promise. Thanks.
