I feel like I am in love :)

I almost feel like I am in love. I just upgraded me PC worth around 60 grands and I am almost in love with the performance. Almost everything runs perfect, much better than I could have dreamt or asked for. Things go silky smooth. I can multitask without pretty much any hassles.

And this is the kind of performance increase I get when I already have a hi fi rig in most people opinions.

Processor : Core i7 860
Like 10% or something slower than the fastest CPU in the world and a whole lot faster than my previous CPU which was upgraded just about 6 months back for around 15 grands. Previously I had a quad core Intel Q9550 2.83GHz.

Motherboard : MSI P55 GD65
HardOCP VFM enthusiast motherboard. Need I asy more? My previous motherboard was crap.

RAM : (to be upgraded to this) G Skill Ripjaw series DDR3 1600 CAS 8
One of the fastest RAMs out there. 2 X 2GB. Even previously I had 4 GB RAM.

HDD : 1TB Seagate 7200.12 32mb cache
Oodles of fast space. Much faster than my previous Western Digital Green 640GB.

2 new DVD RWs, the old one was slow and worn out. One 22x Samsung and the other HP 24x.

And the greatest of all, the card which Americans today crave for and which few Indians have. Sapphire HD 5850 1GB which is one of the fastest graphic cards money can buy if you leave out dual GPU configurations and the best thing is that it is DX 11 compatible. :D

The CPU cooler Thermalright Ultra 120 is to be put on soon as well. And I just came to know that my PSU was GP AL650AA and not AL650A, now that is something. :)

NFS Shift runs way better than the way even NFS Undercover used to run on my previous rig. It is nearly flawless. Farcry 2 and Call of Juarez : Bound in Blood are even better, especially the later. FEAR 2 and UT 3 run awesome and even Dirt 2 runs great.

Except Crysis, I play all games at 1920x1080 full HD everything maxed out with or without AA depending on the game and AF set 16x. PERIOD!!!

Had it not been for Crysis, I would probably have gone absolutely crazy over it. :( :D

Had I not fallen in love with my angel, I would have fallen in love with this performance for sure, LOL. Just kidding!

I still miss my angel a hell of a lot and will wait for her after death...

I don't keep a track of lappies. Check


In love with the performance of my PC, it is absolutely amazing. Obviously, this isn't true love in reality, but as close to love as I can because I already know an angel who I genuinely love.
