Oops, Blue and I do tend to go all over the place, don't we?
Anyway, I was over all the Steam forum, a few member, myself included, got into it with this dude who acts like AMD owed him money or had slighted him in some way. He did go on and on about FX/Phenom II's being crap CPUs. I had offended him by saying how I liked the FX4100 when I had it, and that it was a fast CPU (especially when I'd OC'ed it to 4.2ghz). Called me an AMD lover (along with a few others who defended AMD CPU's)....why do some hate AMD so? I don't get it.....He didn't respond directly to my posts, I guess it was because I'd mentioned that I owned two Intel Extreme CPU's, and that the FX8120 build was so that I could try out the FX, and for something different. I mean, I can't be buying Intel CPU's all the way, can I? Where's the fun in that? That's one of the reasons why I've staunchly refused to buy an iPhone, it's so mundane, everyone, or just about, has one.....I want to be different. That's why I'm using a Galaxy ACE + Galaxy Tab7.7 for my communication and surfing on the go. iPhone 5? Nope, I'll be getting either a Galaxy NOTE or S III around Sept when my phone contract expires.
Well with me I have but one system and working on another, that I may or may not keep. Anyhow it's all ready built or I would put an AMD chip in it.
It's a HP Pavilion p6724y and pretty damn fast too, it sports a E5700 Intel Pentium Dual Core cpu, a gig hdd space, 4 gig ram ddr3 it has Intel integrated GFX (gma x4500) for now.
It's a HP Pavilion as I said. Look here at Amazon :: http://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-p6724 ... B006KN7NGK (Best Link)
Here's a PIC of it::
Close up of case.
The real deal-images by me&photobucket. This PC is about 600 bucks at BestBuy
I'm using the monitor
Love it!! 22.5" HP2311x, I'll use my Acer on it. 21" Nice Freaking Monitor as well.

Anyway I'm not sure how much I can upgrade it, or if I will, it's for testing and what not, like if I loose my Connection on
Big Blue do to re-building and so on. It's Snappy and Quiet as Hell, I swear you can't tell if it's on or not
Solid well built for a Proprietary Machine.
Won't take a AMD cpu so that's out. I really would put on in if I could!!
So NO I don't have anything against AMD used them for years with all my Abit Builds and some before and after.
My DFI Lan Party was a AMD Dual Core for example. KN9 or KN8 a bunch of them. In fact I'm new to the Intel World. So far I like what I see though
Ity's mostly KIDS that are Fan-boys, or in-mature adults. Some just play, which is ok if you know the person well, if you don't and you (anyone) SLAM an others Machine
solely because it has different Hardware than our own. That's F#@KED UP!! In my BOOK!!Blue
No new updates on my RX-1, it'll be here Tuesday or Wednesday, address I corrected, It's ALL GOOD!!
when you see PIC's of my HP on the web, and see like the Keyboard and Mouse in real life it's not the same. The Keyboard
and Mouse are total junk, keyboard was (is) busted when I got it, just crap, cheap as you can buy K&M. The rest is A-Okay!!
Oh and yea I have a lot of Steam games not as much as Chris and Yourself (GD) about half what you have.
Chris if you want to play a Wonderful PC game that takes place in your home state, Arizona, why then PICK UP Alan Wake American Nightmare
I know you'll have fun with it, lots of check points, great gtx, AWESOME story, it's like being in an Episode of the old TWILIGHT ZOZE!!
and it's Easy, has tons of stuff on HUD to point you in correct direction (you can turn it off too, for hardcore, lets get Lost gamers).
Think TWILIGHT ZONE+ARIZONA+PC GAME and you got it!!
BTW I straightened out the UPS...
==================================================Attention my last images of new case are now in Open Discussion (that's what GD is referring too in below post) Thank-You
