Kind of like my “Trojan! Yay!” but with a different tone.
After a few months of a slow ass computer, constant reboots due to POS power supply, and various other things, I decided it was about time to upgrade. Wanted a new processor, but needed a new motherboard for it. With that came new ram, and also a new power supply.
I walked in to Ye Olde Computer Shoppe, thinking that I didn’t care how much it cost. I walked out thinking “New motherboard, Athlon64 3200+, new power supply, gig of ram, $650 (Canadian)”. Walked back in half an hour later thinking the same thing. But walked out with an $800 defecit in my wallet.
After “haggling”, and getting a 5% discount, I decided to take the power supply and processor a step further.
After leaving Ye Olde Computer Shoppe, I held an AMD Athlon64 3500+, an MSI K8N Neo2 mobo (only one [and the last one] the guy had that would support the chip and my AGP Geforce card), a gig of ram, and an OCZ Modstream 520W power supply (fancy shiny beast, had to remove a fan just so it would fit).
So, needless to say, I’m quite happy with my purchase. Ugly Doris was so damn loud before that you could barely hear the beep when she powers up, but now she’s so quiet it startles me.
Next stop, Ugly Doris gets a facelift. Gotta gets me a new tower…
