hitchface's PC Profile

Vitals

My PC's Name:The Aviator
Date Built/Last Mod:November of 2006/August 2008
Building PCs for:3 to 4 years
Future Plans:I made this system with the ability to upgrade in mind. SLI ready, 8 gigs of RAM supported, AM3 ready, and plenty of room to work with. Now I realize that SLI isn't worth my time, and that C2D would have been a better option. However, I am still AM3 ready, which is comforting.

Mobo upgrade and more RAM, for sure.
Purpose of My PC:Games and work...meaning lots of first person shooters and marketing.
Internet Connection:Fast.
Furniture:On the desk, where it belongs.
Where I Shop:Memory Express
NCIX
Tiger Direct
