Default Bought New PC for my sister :)

Well sinds my sister is still running a casset AMD processor wich is running @ 900Mhz and has well (crap for the rest)

I decieded to buy a new PC for her, couse i love her.
Shes on holliday right now on some sort of camping, and before she left she asked me to look onto her system couse it was acting wrong or something (Again)... so i thought it is a nice pressent for her when she comes back.

This is what i bought for her (and a bit for myself )

Now she is not a gamer @ all.. but i thought (just for the heck of it) it aint gone be the system anymore that has issue's! I can blame her over and over agian for not being able to keep the system clean from stuff.... anyway's..

3,5" diskdrive black

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ BOXED *SanDiego-Core* (Socket 939) (for my dad, she can have my dad's processor wich is an 3200+amd 64 wich i gave to my dad ^^)

Logitech Value Keyboard OEM zwart

Antec LifeStyle Sonata II 450Watt

Asus Nvidia EN6600GT/HTD 256MB DDR3 SDRAM (PCI-E)

DFI Lanparty UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert (bought this for myself, she can have my MSI)

Plextor DVD +-R/+-RW PX-750A white/black


Other then that.. i have some ram lying arround (Dad get's my corsair 1 gig ramset with those led lights) My sister has to settle for 512 mb twinmos ram. I also have a 120 Gig HDD lying around wich im gone give her. ohhh i forgot she also get's my old ? Creative 1024 Soundblaster live.

as for myself.... why did i bought the DFI Lanparty UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert ? well couse i wanne go SLI and i like the UV stuff ^^ lol
Extra width PCI-E slots for clerence etc..

I wish I had a brother like you... hehe

I'm the only computer literate person in my family (including cousins, etc)... so I'm left to buy all those expensive gadgets for myself.

Oh well...can't really complain...

Not to ruin your thread or anything , but why did you buy her something that she has no knowledge of
& as i understand she's not even interested in a new PC .. if i were you i'd buy her something more "girly" that she has knowledge & interest in.

anyway hope she likes it & all goes well

Nah i could give her money just instead like i allready do etc... but she alway's complains about her pc not being able to etc... So i bought her a new one just so she can get of my back (and yes becouse i love her)

She's behind her computer allot... and i know she's drooling onto mine.
Why Not something girly ? like birthday's etc... ? Nah i was more into something she uses everyday (yes including parfume)

i could have just give her the money wich is 700+- € but there's alway's another day... you sound like it's just for one time. It's a Brand new PC right now wich i bet she will love compared to the system she has right now / compared to the system we all have... I just don't want her to be running behind of things.
She has a freeking 900 Mhz processor (AMD casset) and im thinking in her way becouse im alway's upgrading and giving things to my dad instead... So im buying a new system for her so she knows i know without speaking or talking about it.

I'm sure she will like it. Not into gaming or computers doesn't mean things can go as twice 3th 4 th as fast then her previous setup (and im talking old old ****) She can ahndle things just fine... (keep in mind... running such old system who's fault is it when things go wrong?) (Again im talking about this

it's not like i wanted to do this or planned on doing.. it's just becouse my sister left yesterday, leaving me a note on my desk if i could look onto her system to reformat etc.... (so she is using the pc everyday! for importent stuff like online banking etc..) A stable system is importent @ those tasks.

I don't want her to be left behind, couse my dad and excpessially me are updating stuff.... So i wanted to buy her something nice.

It's not something i planned on doing.... I can buy her girly stuff anytime for less Money if you know what i mean.

What's the point ey you brought me onto a new idea Why not buy a new pc + parfume all wrapped up...
p.s. that was my plan all allong.... PC wrapped up with paper and something nice, just to show i love her...

btw that processor showed in this thread was a processor i used to use ^^ ahhh yes AMD alway's!

She will like what it can do over her old machine. Specifically the Plextor DVD, SB, and 120GB HDD. Hope she has some good speakers or headphones.

Just a reminder, This thread isn't about me showing of ^^ Don't forget that.

You sound like I wouldn't know how to thread women in real life. You sound like a Geek yourself, and that aint a compliment from my side specially on Nvnew. Guy's like you do grow on threes.
You guy's have no respect for woman @ all ^^
