I upgraded my primary computer this weekend and am completely psyched.
My old specs:
AMD Phenom X4 9650 CPU
8GB DDR2 800
a video card (I'm not sure what it was, as I'm not a gamer...see all my posts in the Skyrim thread.
750GB Caviar Black primary hard drive
My new specs:
AMD A8-3870 Llano APU (unlocked)...yes, I'm one of the last living AMD fanboys
16GB DDR3 1333 (SIXTEEN, not a typo!)
no video card, I'm going with the GPU on the chip.
80GB Intel 320 Series SSD (primary hard drive, the 750GB Caviar Black is now my secondary drive)
I kept the DVD Burner and Blu-Ray Burner, one of each and the tv tuner card and I replaced a 1TB USB 2.0 external drive with a 3TB USB 3.0 external.
