New PC

Picked up the new PC yesterday, and then spent the next 24 hours trying to work out what was wrong with it. (It wouldn’t boot unless the displayport connection was removed and replaced each time. Found forum complaints about both the motherboard manufacturer and the specific 27” DELL screens I use having related issues. Resolved by just sticking with dual DVI connections, but took a while to work all of that out.)   The base specs of the new system:

Intel i7 3770
16GB RAM
GTX670
OCZ Vertex 3 SSD (240GB & 60GB) + 2TB HDD
Corsair Obsidian 550D Case and 1050W PS

It boots before my old system gets past the BIOS displays, is extremely quiet, and is having no issues with multiple EVE clients. Likely to take a week or so to set up all the applications and get the EVE client back to how I want it, so not likely to be doing much in game until that is all done.

  1. /me is jealous. Congrats on the new rig. I’m in need of a new one myself, but the wife doesn’t seem to agree with me. She’d rather waste my money on useless things like food for the kids and a roof over our heads or some junk like that.
    My system is old and has been falling apart piece by piece for years now. The latest casualty was my graphics card a couple months back. Momma always said to marry a rich woman.
