Default The Times they are a changing.

Haven't been around in while so I thought I'd pop in and introduce you to my latest upgrade. Last time, I came in here gushing about my new 8800GT mated with a Pentium D 915. Well that baby is gone now, consigned to the spare parts pile. I put in a Q6600 and I can say now that bottlenecks no longer exist and overall performance is astounding. Next step is, 4gb of PC800 and Vista Premium 64(eventually going to 8gb of PC800).

Gotta love RAM prices these days.
i5 3350P @ 3.1ghz
8192mb DDR3 Corsair Vengeance
Gigabyte GTX 660 2gb
Windows 8 Standard
Gigabyte GA-B75M-HD3
Realtek Onboard
NZXT Phantom 410 Gaming Case
Corsair 500w
