Well after finally saving up enough money I ordered my new PC from OPC (Overdrive PC) on Friday. Since I am working 6-7 days a week I decided to get something from a builder with a good reputation and under some sort of warranty since I do not have the free time to set up my own system. I was intrigued by the fact they overclock their systems and warranty them as such and HardOCP gave them their yearly award for best build quality. Here is what I have ordered:

I already have my new Dell 2407 monitor and will pick up a G15 keyboard and G5 mouse in a week or so. I got done installing a bunch of texture mods for Oblivion on my current AGP system with a 7800GS and watched it run in single digits at 1920x1200 on my 2407. It will be interesting to see the difference with my new machine.

Now I get to drive myself nuts waiting for it to arrive in about a month...

Well it was about $5500 but yeah, that's is a lot more than DIY. I basically paid for the difference with the overtime I worked in November. With my limited free time I prefer to let them deal with any issues if it breaks down as opposed to me doing it and having to pay more on top of it.

I am bringing my AGP system to its knees right now with the Oblivion mods I am installing for it - I want to see how it all looks now ahead of time. I also got unopened copies of Gothic 3, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, and FEAR:Extraction Point ready to go.

Well I currently have a 7800GS running on an Opteron-based FX-53 system that I bought in the fall of 2004. I think I get about 3000 or so running 3DMark06 at the moment. I guess Christmas is going to come abouta month later for me.
