Thursday night, Josh's brother arrived to spend the weekend here. I didn't do too much, just chatted on MSN.
Friday night, the three of us played Smash Bros. Brawl for a while, and then I think I went to my room and was looking at computer hardware parts online. I've decided not to buy a prebuilt computer this time and instead build my own. This way I can get a computer the way i want it and give it potential to be very powerful. Also, I can slowly buy the parts one at a time if I need to. I'm looking at getting
-AMD Phenom 550 quad core 3.2 ghz processor
-MSI 790FX-GD70 motherboard (not sure yet)
-8GB~ DDR3 Ram
-ATI Radion 4890 graphics card with option for crossfire
Big question: Anyone know about building computers? Will this all work efficiently together? Recommend a better graphics card? Crossfire? PSU?
but all of this is quite subject to change as I mull this over the next month or two. I probably should get the bed first afterall, since this will be potentially expensive. I mean, I have to get a 23" HD monitor too, cus with all this power, there is no sense in playing Crysis on max settings on a smaller one.
Today, Saturday, I woke up before Josh and his brother (I think they were up well past 3AM) and I went to Barnes and Noble across the street to look at computer hardware magazines. I also bought a springform pan that I intend to make a cheesecake with. I had a Marble Mocah Mocciato at Starbucks (I asked for an orange mocha, but they didn't have orange...). I came back and Josh and his brother were up, so I asked if they wanted to see Inglorius Basterds, so we went right out since the movie was starting soon. I have to say it was the best movie I've seen this year. Honestly, there were so many points where I was on the edge of my seat with fear or dying of laughter. If a movie can do both of those and keep me engrossed, then it's a damn good movie.
