Athlon FX-55

I was cruising around on ebay during the weekend and saw an offer that I could not resist. It was too good to be true: The user had a perfect rating, and an item whose very name would cause most hardware fanatics to drool. Lucky me purchased *drumroll* an Athlon64 FX-55 80% discounted from its usual retail value.

K I was trying to hold back and do a major upgrade on my PC in late 2007/early 2008 but with the gears set in motion, I think I’m going to pimp my case a few months early. I have my eyes set on an X1950 pro graphics card, the perfect compliment to such a beastly CPU.

Now, you might be asking why I need so much power in my case. To be honest, I have no idea. Ok ok ok. I always was curious to see how Doom 3/Quake 4 looked on max quality, and I wouldn’t mind seeing 3D mark 2006 as something more fluid than a slideshow (albeit a VERY beautiful slideshow)

Ahhh now I’m getting all shaky thinking about that raw gaming power. Need to sleep, but I’ll be having dreams of dancing models, lit with stunning shader effects. Goodnight folks
