Welcome to the Limit

Finally, after all these years, I got a new PC! I'd like to thank the US Government and it's President George W. Bush for funding the project. I'd also like to thank Paul Engemann, Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte for producing the fine music I accompanied this video below. Enjoy the making of my new PC!




For those who can understand, here are my PC specs:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ (3.2 GHz Dual Core)
eVGA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB
2.0 GB DDR2-800 RAM (Kingston brand)
Sound Blaster X-Fi (Xtreme Fidelity) Xtreme Audio
Seagate Barracuda 500GB SATA2 Hard Drive
Lite On 20X DVD-RW drive
CoolerMaster Centurion+ 534 case with CoolerMaster 500W power supply

Hope you enjoy the new PC.

Tell me how the eVGA 8800 holds up. I've been looking into buying one for a bit now (upgrading for an xfx 7600gt) but have been torn between trying an eVGA or sticking with XFX.

I've never had a problem with my XFX, which is why I want to stick with them. But, some of the eVGA cards give more bang for the buck... Unfortunately, I've also heard of them overheating a lot (slunks is suffering from this problem, currently.

So yeah, you should tell me how it holds up temp-wise under load. Thanks.
