Two for Tuesday
Well, actually Friday. Yes, only 3 days until I join the dual-core revolution. I ordered my new set on Sunday night from NewEgg:
- Athlon 64 X2 4000+
- 2GB pqi Turbo DDR2 667
- Gigabyte mobo with 690V chipset and 2000MHz HyperTransport
- MSI 8500GT OC 256MB GDDR3
It’s not my dream system, but with the two rebates it’s coming to about $210. I’m going to give Ubuntu a shot, and see just how great it is. I’m going to part out the old desktop and build a system for a friend (who’s got a PIII) and I dug my old socket A XP 2000+ out of the closet to build a home server. It’ll be a fun weekend.
Any of you get some new hardware you’re excited about?
