Almost time for the birth of a new computer

For the last few months, I’ve been slowly working up parts to building a computer, which is a first for me.  I’ve been nabbing sales where I see them, and saving a good amount of money to make a great computer.

So, in the upcoming weeks, I will finally have all the parts.  At that point, I shall finally enter the realm of the unknown, for I have upgraded components but never have I build a complete computer.

At this point, here are the basic stats of my new computer.

i7-930 processor.

6 GB of RAM

1 GB ATI 5850 graphics card

1 2 TB and 1 1.5 TB hard drive.

23″ widescreen monitor

And of course, other necessary parts that aren’t so exciting to report on.  Well, wish me luck.

Boring day.

Well, I can’t really comment about today. There was absolutely nothing that happened. Even my video game news sources didn’t provide much of excitement today, which is to be expected mid-week. Things just don’t happen in the middle of the week.

I suppose I could comment on the three year old that shot itself a few days ago, but does that really matter? The father left a loaded, ready gun out in reach of a three year old. No matter what Wii peripheral the girl may have used, that never should have happened. And hence, I have the same opinion as to nearly everyone else who has read the story. Yep, nothing much of excitement there.

I spotted Fire Emblem for the Wii at a decent price, for I had held off too long when it was available. So, now I’m paying 45 + 6 dollars shipping to get it. Could I possibly get it cheaper from Gamestop? Sure. Do I want it used? No.

Well, there you have it… Boring day, huh?

At least I can leave you with this knoweldge: Monster Hunter is addicting.
