So have I noticed any differences? Yes. My son and I play flight simulator. We have Microsoft's FSX and also X-plane 9. With both games, we can crank up the complexity and the video card eats it like a goat will eat grass.
So what's next on the list? I need the following:
- More RAM
- Two 1TB hard drives to replace the 250GB and 500GB drives in the system
- Windows 7
Last night I was thinking to myself, why am I spending so much money on an upgrade? I was at Wal-Mart the other day and I saw a pretty decent eMachines computer for just under $400....... It had a multi-core CPU, 6GB of RAM and a 750GB hard drive..... Hmmm.... Why am I doing this? I guess I like building stuff. I don't know. A frustrated Lego builder? I haven't purchased an assembled computer in probably a dozen years. All the other computers that I have, I have pieced together myself. Yup. I'm a geek. Pure and simple.
