    My head is still reeling guys...... Right now it's hard to conceptualize how much of an upgrade this really is. I'm going over the mobo manual right now. :w00t: I've never sat down at a multi core system, let alone owned one. (Dual PIII's don't count, right?) I'll also need to be looking at a 64bit OS....... something else I've never seen in action. It's all new to me




    "Manna from Heaven" seems to describe it quite well..... :lol:

    "Videos..." was the best guess? I'm not sure I understood #414 properly but that's the only post by Ty I could find on the link Veridian gave.

    Congrats Tyrson.

    I don't care that I didn't win; I got the answer right :)

    Truly awesome - and yes, dual PIII's do count for me anyways. Managing the cores is a non issue now though. 790 chipset mainboard and DDR3 to go with that 3Ghz processor - congratulations!

    Put so well by Jimmy Buffet, you gotta be thinkin' "Ain't Life Grand?"!

    With the new name they need a motto or a new motto (if there is one other than "formerly DriverHeaven.net")

    And nice .net to .com upgrade too :)

    But, You guys at HH (!?!??) should make your motto or header or whatever you callit:

    HardwareHeaven - HHardcore

    HHardcoreHHardware or something. HHeavenlyHHardcoreHHardware :) Hardcore is the best word evarz, and HH is the new DH, just as green is the new black and 8 is the new 3. Thus thou shall use my idea to show your gratitude to my gerbil-infested brain.

    Gerilz are teh new Hampsters also, just for future reference. Guinea Pigs are taking over though! We must stop them.

    <3 :rolleyes:rambling again

    Congrats Tyrsonswood!
    That was a hard to believe guess! Fortune teller Tyrsonswood :D

    With your previous 5770 on an old P4 you surely deserved this great upgrade ;)
    Now you can still go to steam's site and start buying great deals for your new system! :cool:
    I wish you many great gaming hours! :taste:
