My New PC!

by Matt on December 11, 2008

It was a sad day in the Brauchler Family about two weeks ago.  Ok, It was just sad for me. My first computer I built took a dive.  The motherboard went for a ride and never came home.  Wow, no clue what that was supposed to mean.

Anyways, I was quite certain that my hard drives were ok.  I was glad that I had a Raid 1 setup just in case.  I did not loose any data which is always awesome.  I had recently been scanning all our documents with a Fujitsu ScanSnap S510.  I was worried that I may have lost some data.  I had intended on getting setup with an online backup solution in case my house burnt down.  Never did get it setup.  I will be doing it soon. Anywho

My new computer is AWESOME!  It has:

  • Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz
  • ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • G.SKILL 8GB DDR2800 (PC2 6400) RAM
  • ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler
  • EVGA GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card
  • CORSAIR 750W SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
  • 2 500GB Western Digital SATA Drives in a RAID 1 Config(soon again)
  • And My Same old ugly case

It is so Fast and awesome!  I have Vista Ultimate x64 installed and running beautifully.  I am now in the process of moving over my files from my other drive.

I have read many reviews on the Q6600 and it was nothing but good news.  I am one of those people now.  I love it!
