Wednesday Brings a New PC

It'll be like Christmas in April!

What's weird is that the PSU (and only the PSU) shipped from Tennessee so it'll be here tomorro, while the rest of the order is coming in 3 boxes from California and is on-time to be delivered Wednesday (they're in Kentucky at the moment).

I can't wait to boot up Hellgate again with DX10 running (yes, I'm giving Vista a shot), and then come May... it's Conan time! Aye, here's hoping all the parts are in working order and this $830 was well spent.

In other Bildo-licious news... there's not much to talk about. I'm knee deep in TTH work and homework, though I only have 4 more weeks of classes before I'm done with this degree and with schooling for a good long while. And you know what that means... time to look for a day job as a Web Designer and Developer! Go me!

Not that I'm not happy with my current gig, but my heart belongs to this blend of art and tech we call Web Design, and I can't wait to make a living doing it. So wish me luck in that aspect. I'm nearly done with my first privately contracted design job, so that's good news too. Anything to continue to build the portfolio.

Hmm... not much else to report I'm afraid. Like I said, until Conan up and launches I've got nothing for you folks except these random updates and the occasional editorial rant. But I thank you all the same for continuing to stop by.

Cheers!

$830? Ouch. Reminds me of when I lived in Utah. I am glad I'm in the land of electronics now (Bay Area). My bro bought me my comp for 580$ its a quad core 2.4 ghz 3 gigs of memory HP blah blah blah at Frys. Anyways I could never get such a good deal online when I lived in Midwest so I know you had no choice, however if you ever are near a Frys electronics check them out. They have stores in a lots of places like Texas and stuff not just Cali. Store locater is here: http://shop2.outpost.com/ac/storelocator/index.jsp;

p.s. I bought my new monitor from newEgg and I have nothing against them as a company, they just don't always have the lowest price is all :P Great shipping service that they are :)

580 for a comp... man does it not come with feed for the hamsters?

A decent GPU will run you half that amount...

sadly they did leave out hamster feed, but we already have two chibi dwarf Robovorsky hamsters in the house so we used them. They needed to let off some energy anyways.

incidentally the GEFORCE 8700 GPU with 500 mb of memory costs 170 but had a 40 dollar rebate at Frys so it only costs 140 bucks in the end. Pretty good price I think.

obviously I can't do math, I meant 130 dollars
