(I know I keep saying "today" in this entry, but it was really yesterday, it was pretty late and my battery was about to go on my laptop, so I just put it into Hibernate )
Yes! I got FOUR of the 11 components today! I got the CPU, PSU, Heatsink and Motherboard!
And so far, that’s cost me £434.75! JUST FOR FOUR COMPONENTS! And the Motherboard cost nearly as much as the other components put together!! Shows you how damned good it’ll be. My brother got one the other day, and he says it’s bloody brilliant! The thing is, I’m not upgrading, I’m building, so I have no previous motherboard to compare it to, so I can’t be amazed at a performance boost.
Wait a sec, I can be! I’ll just compare it to my "Super Computer!" That’s cool.
With that motherboard, though, I get Company of Heroes free, along with ASUS update drivers and stuff, and I also get Kapersky AntiVirus, which is really cool, cuz I left out my anti-virus. I also get 3DMark06 Professional, so that’ll help with seeing how good my PC is. I’m aiming for about 10,000 3DMarks, which’ll make it about FOUR TIMES better than my old computer.
I’m gonna get the other seven components on Wednesday. I just hope that none of them go out of stock…
Hang on… lemme check stock levels…
NZXT Apollo… 5 or more stock.
OCZ 4GB RAM… 5 or more stock.
GeForce 8800GT… 5 or more stock.
20" ASUS Widescreen monitor… 5 or more stock.
500GB Samsung HDD… 5 or more stock.
Samsung DVD/RW… 5 or more stock.

Oh NICE! I think I’ll be just fine!
Okay, I’ll be back on Wednesday to tell you whether this is all going according to plan! Bye now!
