I shit you not!Â I bought a new motherboard todayÂ (to put in the new case along with the new DVD reader/burner I bought a couple weeks ago).Â And 8 gig of double DDR RAM.Â Basically, with the exception of my hard drives, this is an entirely new machine.
I installed Vista 32 bit Ultimate in 17 minutes from “disk to Desktop” – meaning from the time I booted off the install CD until I was sitting at my desktop.Â My previous Vista installs each took an hour – easy.
System details will wait for another post tomorrow (well, hell, as fast as this thing is, it may be later tonight!) – after I get all my system drivers installed (video mostly) so I can show you the Performance Index.
But this Dual Core Pentium is SCARY fast with 8 gig of RAM!
I can’t wait until I get it configured!
And my son?Â He walks in as I start the install and stands staring at it – not believing how fast it is.Â Once it rebooted to the desktop he muttered, “and you don’t even play video games… what a waste” as he walked out of my office.Â Hah!Â Sucks to be him.
This is without doubt the fastest freaking machine I have ever owned.Â Or used.
I may just have to play a video game or two on it – just to make my son even more jealous!
