…says my new computer. I’m very excited about it. I’ve never even had my very own desktop before, and now, thanks to help, I got to build one myself. I got a pink case:
…which I think is awesome. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 processor, a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 motherboard, 4x1GB Corsair DDR2 800 memory, a GeForce 8500 GT 512MB graphics card, a Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB hard drive (as well as a Transcend 160GB external hard drive), an Antec TruePower 550W power supply, and a Lite-On 22x DVD burner. All but the burner, hard drives, and case (obviously) are hand-me-downs from Erik. However, to me this is still a kick-ass setup – much better than the laptop I’ve been using for the last four years.
Building it was a lot of fun; he supervised, and helped with a few things. But I really did much of it myself, and I have the cut to prove it:
The computer runs 64 bit Vista, which I am enjoying. I finally have a graphics card that can handle gaming! It’s also nice to have more than the 80G of storage space that my laptop was limited to. All in all, I am very pleased with my new computer. Thanks hun! 🙂
