A long wait

I’ve been waiting for my new graphics card to arrive since before Christmas!!! I even sold my ex-graphic card a few weeks ago in anticipation of a timely delivery. Boy did I pwn myself well; I haven’t touched a game since January 12th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Athlon FX-55

I was cruising around on ebay during the weekend and saw an offer that I could not resist. It was too good to be true: The user had a perfect rating, and an item whose very name would cause most hardware fanatics to drool.

Thermaltake Armor Jr.

My birthday present from me to me, a Thermaltake Amor Jr. case Yes, I’m nerdy. But hey, I have the best looking PC on the block and you know it :D Sadly, supposedly quiet fans didn’t meet my expectations, as usual so I had to splurge on a fan (and I have some from before).

Building xiO 2.5

As some may know, I am a hardware enthusiast. Some might also know that my pc is historically named xiO. I saw an offer on Ebay for an Athlon64 FX-55, one of AMD’s VERY high-end CPUs, around December 14th and this set in motion a system upgrade.
