My New Computer

So, I built a computer in August and it’s pretty fast and wasn’t too expensive either. Runs all the newest games in high resolutions and stuff.

Athlon 64 X2 5000+ @ 2.9Ghz (from 2.6 stock)

2x1GB Mushkin DDR2-800

512MB Radeon HD 2900 Pro @ 742/1000mhz (XT speeds, from 600/800 stock, only OC for demanding games though)

Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3H 690G Socket AM2 motherboard (w/ integrated Radeon x1250)

250GB Seagate 7200.10 SATA 3g (233GiB)

Windows Vista Home Premium x64

So far it’s great, moving up from an Athlon XP 2200+ w/ 512MB and 128MB R9200SE was amazing. Crysis runs, lol, and UT3 runs fast @60fps on 1440×900, around 50 and dips on 1680×1050 native.
