1999 was the year when I bought my first computer. With Intel 533 MHz processor and 512 Mb RAM, its my best friend. But thats the last time I purchased a branded computer. Since then I started to build my own PC from the components that I choose. It’s an awesome experiance when you build your tool of computing. I am sure many of you build your very own PC.
I personally believe, if you build your own PC then you will feel a bond with it. My current build has completed it’s 4th annyversary already. The following is the list;
- ASUS Crosshair V Mother Board
- AMD FX-8150 8-Core Processor 3.61GHz
- 16 Gig 1600MHz RAM
- 512 GB SSD, 1TB WD HDD with 7200 RPM and 128 GB WD HDD with 10,000 RPM
- AMD Radeon HD 6900 GPU
- CM Strom truper Casing
- Dell U2515H Monitor wiht IPS
Apart from my desktop, I also have a laptop and it is Alienware M15x. I bought it in 2010 before my desktop. I love gamming, so that was the plan. But unfortunatly my gamming enthusiasm does not last longer with M15x. I was playing Crysis and with even low settings my M15x did not impressed me. So finally I built my own desktop.
Resently I changed the laptop’s hard drive to 512 Gb SSD. Since then it’s really faster and I am using it as my development machine when ever my desktop occupied by my son.
