New computer is all built and good to go. I love this thing.

AMD Phenom II x4 @ 3.4 Ghz
XFX HD 5850
COOLER MASTER CM690 II (I freaking love this case to pieces)
Corsair 650 Watt PSU
GIGABYTE 890GX motherboard

Boots up in 15 seconds (from hitting button to being usable).

I haven't been able to try to game on it yet, as I'm currently reformatting an old hard drive, but I know for sure it will play Crysis.

I'm still excited.

Nice. Good on you, I would be excited too.

There's nothing like firing up that brand new PC and watching it boot to a nice clean desktop.

It's almost like entering a virgin - only you can format it back to virgin anytime you want.

i am envious tho i never had an amd processor ever (does it feel dirty?) What is ssd (solid state, like a flash drive?)that doesn't seem like near enough space, tho it will never fail on you, right?

disco: very graphic. =)

Good for you!

SSD is solid state disk. It's the new way of storing your boot partition for fast boot.
Nice for you, Luke!

So I haven't been able to play Crysis, as it's being really shitty. I can't play in DX10 mode, only compatibility mode, and it's all around pissing me off.

Oh well. Time to reinstall Steam.

Let me guess, you got win 7 right?

Get freaking vista if so.
Commented 11 years ago2010-07-10 04:14:53 UTC Comment #40042
You're joking right? Vista rather than 7...

Hope you get Crysis sorted out- nice system.

Crollo, you fail.

But that's some killer system right there. Enjoy it. :)

Disco Stu's joke just made my day.

But 30 GB of space really isn't enough. I assume that is only your boot drive with the OS on it. You probably have another SATA HDD for storage.

Yah, of course. I probably should have mentioned my re-used 250 GB Seagate Barracuda.

I am looking at this CM case for my build.

It's got slightly better reviews compared to yours, but your case looks great too.
Commented 11 years ago2010-07-11 00:30:51 UTC Comment #40036
I was looking at that too. I got mine because I heard a lot of great things even compared to that one.

Honestly, I would suggest mine. It's so nice.

I'll consider yours when it's time for me to make that decision. THanks.
