after months(actually a year) of pestering dad i finally got my PC ugraded…..

got a new GFX Card- XFX nVidia 8600 GT XXX edition(DD3 Memory yeah!!!)

new processor- AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Dual Core Processor(2.7GHz)

and a Gig of RAM – Transcend 667 Mhz(actually got this like last month)

Hardware install took around 15 Minutes……started PC…..went into BIOS….Bios had detected the Card as well as the new processor….. :) proceeded to boot….logged in……vista detected new hardware and installed drivers Automatically  and showed the ready to use dialog…something fishy i thought since i hadnt even inserted the forceware disk….however i went into display properties to check my adapter and what do i see? <no info available>…..ok i was right then i thought….i proceeded to insert the disk and install the forceware….did a quick restart…..went to the the display properties checked adapter and Voila! nVidia 8600 GT!….fired up CPUz and GPUz and here is the result……

result

  1. Dude, do you know that 9600GT is just Rs. 9000? I called up Rashi Peripherals yesterday as I would be buying one soon…
    And dude, I didn’t know that you too were a member of the AMD Brotherhood… Nice! :D

  2. And then just make sure you install Windows XP x64 on it. It is seriously the fastest OS you have for *gaming*… Vista, even when running on 64-bit is slower, while the 32-bit is abysmally rheumatic.

    @prashanth- yeah i thought of the 9600GT too….but then i could not have bought the processor…coz i only got 10K from dad and I needed a processor upgrade bad!
    and yeah i <3 AMD!!!
    i got XP on Dual Boot….

    @Vivek-cmon dude!who gives a sh*t about punctuation… :D
    and that’s Snoop Dogg in the wallpaper..
    and yeah i AM using IE, i got mozilla too but i am just too used to IE to change….

  4. dude,u should have bought a 9600gt or even an 8800gs.the 9600gt standard edition is much faster than a 8600gt xxx version. If possible talk to rashi for an exchange.

    btw just to make u jealous, this is my rig-
    intel c2d e4500
    msi p35neo2-fr
    2gb corsair ddr2800 4-4-4-12
    msi factory oced 8800gt 512mb
    320gb samsung hdd
    600w ocz power supply

    now burn!
