«One Computer Built»

One computer to go. It's not top-of-the-line, but they were hand-me-down parts, so I can't complain. They are better than what I was using.

Now on my "main" computer (I name it Lemmywinks1) I'm running an AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 dual core processor (2.6 GHz), 4 GB of memory, and a GeForce 8600 GTS graphics card. With 4 GB of memory, I finally can justify using a 64-bit operating system.

The next computer will be built from the parts I just took out of this one. It all works in a sort-of chain of command. My dad buys new parts. I get his old parts to go into Lemmywinks. Then Lemmywink's old parts go into my other computer (named BlueMarf). Then those parts replace the even older parts on the shelf.

The Game. Because I just saw the words "The Genre" and that caused me to lose The Game... again.

1:Yes, I know the correct spelling is Lemmiwinks. But I like spelling it with a "Y".

  1. I have five computers in the house all except one I built from bits. I kept cannibalising so that when I bought a better bit of kit the bit being replaced was handed down the line. I used to love building them. Then a while back it started to be cheaper just to buy one. I used to go to computer fairs fairly often to buy bits n pieces and software. It's a geek thing I guess!


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
