Well then, here I am, out here somewhere... no where... its not important.

But I'm a huge fan of making my system go faster. Especially since she's so dated.... But I love her anyway, and she's done me proud.

My name is Gakusei. Not sure what alls I can contribute here, but I'm sure I'll be learning more than anything.

Welcome! I'm glad to see that you've found the edit system button in the user control panel .

An E8400 + 8800GT was a killer rig for the price back in 08, you have nothing to be ashamed about. Don't worry if you can't contribute yet; absorb all the information and you'll have plenty of advice to give .

Aye, I had the fastest PC of anyone I knew. She cost me $2000 back in the day (March of 08), but that included peripherals too. Only thing I've upgraded was the RAM (from 3 GB to 8 GB). Almost all tasks suit me just fine, but video editing can bog her down at times.

Late next year, I'm planning a Ivy Bridge 6-Core build with as much RAM as the processor and motherboard could possibly handle (I'm hoping for at least 24 GB, 32 is my goal).

Good times. The weirdest thing that bit people in the arse is that kids were swapping Q6600's to E8400's left and right. In the end, the folks who stuck with the quads got more life because the games wanted cores, not megahertz.

Good luck with the IB build! Don't hesitate to post if you have questions.

Yeah, I didn't understand that either. I stuck with a dual-core to keep costs down, and since I had a 2.0 GHz last gen dual core in my laptop that was plenty fast, I figured Wolfdale would be heaven. It still hasn't let me down, though her age is showing. I did some rough math in my head, and Ivy Bridge will be nearly 2 Ghz faster than my processor, clock for clock. Plus add in the extra 4 cores and the extra 6 threads, oh yeah.
