w00t!! finally got it….

after months(actually a year) of pestering dad i finally got my PC ugraded…..

got a new GFX Card- XFX nVidia 8600 GT XXX edition(DD3 Memory yeah!!!)

new processor- AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Dual Core Processor(2.7GHz)

and a Gig of RAM – Transcend 667 Mhz(actually got this like last month)

Hardware install took around 15 Minutes……started PC…..went into BIOS….Bios had detected the Card as well as the new processor….. 🙂 proceeded to boot….logged in……vista detected new hardware and installed drivers Automatically  and showed the ready to use dialog…something fishy i thought since i hadnt even inserted the forceware disk….however i went into display properties to check my adapter and what do i see? <no info available>…..ok i was right then i thought….i proceeded to insert the disk and install the forceware….did a quick restart…..went to the the display properties checked adapter and Voila! nVidia 8600 GT!….fired up CPUz and GPUz and here is the result……


 now finally my PC is the way i want it to be…..

RAM- 3 GB Transcend DDR2 667Mhz

Dude, do you know that 9600GT is just Rs. 9000? I called up Rashi Peripherals yesterday as I would be buying one soon…
And dude, I didn’t know that you too were a member of the AMD Brotherhood… Nice! 😀

And then just make sure you install Windows XP x64 on it. It is seriously the fastest OS you have for gaming… Vista, even when running on 64-bit is slower, while the 32-bit is abysmally rheumatic.

@prashanth- yeah i thought of the 9600GT too….but then i could not have bought the processor…coz i only got 10K from dad and I needed a processor upgrade bad!
and yeah i <3 AMD!!!
i got XP on Dual Boot….

@Vivek-cmon dude!who gives a sh*t about punctuation… 😀
and that’s Snoop Dogg in the wallpaper..
and yeah i AM using IE, i got mozilla too but i am just too used to IE to change….

dude,u should have bought a 9600gt or even an 8800gs.the 9600gt standard edition is much faster than a 8600gt xxx version. If possible talk to rashi for an exchange.

btw just to make u jealous, this is my rig-
intel c2d e4500
msi p35neo2-fr
2gb corsair ddr2800 4-4-4-12
msi factory oced 8800gt 512mb
320gb samsung hdd
600w ocz power supply

now burn!
