New comp...

Well, after my stolen notebook incident, really needed a comp to work with. So i asked parents if there is a budget for another comp. Not a notebook but jz a desktop. Dad said yes, so what else mom could say. Hahaz Went scouting around. Before that, jz search the web to see whats new on the hardware market. wow. Really lots lots lots of things to chose from. BUT, not cheap. All i needed was jz a normal PC. Nothing super powerful of fancy.(Thought of having one actually). But next time i earn my own money only get. So, places to buy the hardware. Dear was a great help. She help me chose the parts as well. Ho liow le. Nothing good but these are the specs.


-AMD Athlon64X2 Dual-Core processor
-Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4
-Power Colour ATI Radeon X1550 256MBGddr2 - 64bit
-(x2)1GB Kingston 667Mhz
-160GB Western Digital 7200rpm
-Trendsonic casing (Included 450W - non true power)
-(x1)Cooler Master system cooler fan
-(x1)Cooler fan extracted from old power supply


Till now, not much problem. Only thing is over heating. CPU is fine. But the builted-in heatsink is the major problem. DAMN hot ah. Hehex. Getting that fixed. So far, tried Crysis and NFS Pro Street. All low specs on the game.

Thanks Dear for helping me out.
