The machine fired up instantly as soon as I pressed the power button, I was pretty impressed by its fast response and the hour glass was a thing of the past.

I know what you want to ask and I'd try to read your mind.

1. No, word and spreadsheet won't go any faster significantly, but wait till you're playing games, the graphics has to be seen to be believed.

2. 3DMARK 2005 scores 13012 ( CPU 5% overclocking, Corsair latency set to 2-3-3-6)I believe it could be higher if I turned off AA and high quality setting.

I LOVE IT!

Will it help me with Solitaire?

that you're happy - and it's pretty obvious that you are. It might be an idea to spend a bit of time learning about how to optimise image file sizes however - 0.6Mb is a tad large for the web.

Is that a speck of dust - down there in that corner?

Size of that pic it doesn't surprise me to find the date it was taken was 12th Dec.Is that why you only got around to posting it today,you were waiting so long to upload it. :-))


Nice kit though,wonder if Santa will fetch me one?

I haven't thought about that, since imageshack allows upto 1 mb file, so I scaled it down to 0.6 mb and uploaded it to this site ,never thought of the space it'd taken up, I'm more than happy if you'd delete it, it's just a picture!

P.S. It's not a speck of dust in the corner, FE, it's just the reflection of the flash.

No, it just took a split of a second to upload it.

Yes, the picture was taken on the 12th, after I built and configured it, I was so happy and excited to explore and play around and tuning it, that's why it took me so long to post here.

P.S. I have something to look forward to after entertaining the whole family during X'mas. :-))
