Upgrade on the way

Upgrade on the way

Postby MacK » Sun Oct 04, 2009 12:15 am

Well, since Pixie has my desktop, and my wife really needs a desktop upgrade, I have finally broken down to get her an upgrade that I can play on in the evenings. Here is what I got:

ASUS 4650 1G 128-bit low-profile HDMI
Intel i5 750
Mushkin DDR3-1600 4GB
MSI P55-GD65 Intel P55 Core i5/i7 Socket 1156 PC3-17000 (DDR3-2133)

The grand total came to $436. I know it's not the most incredible machine, but it will be a great upgrade from her 1GHZ Athlon and a GeForce 2.

Nice, the i5's are an incredible value right now. I might actually be able to buy an ATI again in my next upgrade, which is exciting because their products were inferior for the price for the last generation or so.

Nice. The i5's are a great deal like Obvious said. What OS are yopu planning on running Win 7 64 I assume?

Probably Win 7 x64. I think that will be my best bet for performance.
