Gamers Blog 2 The New Quad Core Is Coming Soon

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, itttttssssss TIME! 4 cores of 2.3GHZ clock speed, with 4GB of DDR2 1000mhz and coupled with a lean, mean 4670, the "4 Cores of Awesomeness" is coming!

Don't mind my last post on that AMD rig, here is what I am getting:

ASRock P45XE ATX Motherboard with Intel P45 chipset
Intel Core2 Quad Q8200 processor 2.33GHZ Yorkfield socket 775 4MB 1333mhz FSB
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro LGA775 2500RPM
OCZ Freeze Extreme Thermal Compound
OCZ Platinum XTC 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2-1000 dual channel memory kit
Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 512MB GDDR3

Not the world's best rig by any means, but much better than my single core p4 that I had. Main reasons for upgrading includes:
-Some games like Crysis, UT3, Grid, and Left 4 Dead had to be run at low settings to run >30fps
-Playback of 720p high definition files would sometimes not be possible
-Folding@Home can benefit more by me joining it with my Radeon 4670
-4 cores for BOINC = 4x more results = faster cancer conquering
-Video conversion needs to be faster

Overall, I thought that it was time for me to upgrade, although the average user will still have no issue running a p4 with 2GB of ram, I needed more power, not just for myself, but for humanity (Folding, and Boinc)

Well that ends this blog, can't speak much more about the upgrade until the parts actually arrive, stay tuned for my complete blog on the "4 Cores of Awesomeness"
