Re: My new PC build (in-progress)

The motherboard and case arrived about an hour ago. I was laying on the couch, trying to get rid of a headache, when my wife said "There's a Purolator truck in the driveway...", and I flew off the couch. She wasn't very happy, because she's been trying to get me to do something productive ...

Re: My new PC build (in-progress)

Well, I ended up buying a used A6-5400k from someone local today. I was looking online last night, replied to the ad and got it for $20. Much better than the $65, with taxes and shipping that it would have cost me new. I also found my 4GB stick of DDR3 yesterday, so now I just need the case and moth...

Re: My new PC build (in-progress)

I've been holding off on ordering the CPU for the last few days, trying to find the best deal, and decide exactly what I was going to get, and once I finally decided to get the A6-5400k this morning, I discovered that the sale at Newegg ended yesterday :lol:, so I'm probably going to hold off and mi...

Re: My new PC build (in-progress)

I'll be going with Win 10, as it's what I currently have on my PC. I'll obviously be doing a clean install with the new build though. I'm assuming that I won't be able to use the same license on the new PC, so do you know the best way to activate Win 10 on my new install?

My new PC build (in-progress)

My computer is in major need of being replaced. It's an old second (third?) hand Dell desktop tower that I managed to upgrade a bit, but it still sucks. It has a Pentium D 915 (2.8GHz) processor, and I think there's 6GB of DDR2 RAM in it, but it isn't using more than 3.5GB. Anyways, I got a few Best...

Sorry about the spam lately...

Hey guys, sorry about the friggin' spammers lately. I've been away for work for the last month (just flew home last night), and haven't had much of a chance to log into OE. I'll see what I can do later this week, once I settle back in at home. I've deleted the stupid threads for now and will see wha...

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

How long do you figure it will take after the free upgrade to Win 10 is over before someone cracks that? :lol:

Re: It's like Christmas morning!

So, in the end I managed to put together a desktop for myself (Pentium D 915 2.8GHz, which will probably be upgraded a bit eventually, with Windows 10), one for my daughter (Pentium 4 2.8GHz, with Windows 7, as I couldn't find some drivers for 10), and a media server to sit in the workshop downstair...
