Kindle Actually 77 Year Old Concept


My PC Specs

When it comes to material items, things I can’t live without can be counted on one hand. My music collection, cell phone, board games and my computer, which I so lovingly refer to as “my baby.” I consider myself lucky to have no other children so I can avoid playing favorites  😉

Since you guys know most everything else about me, it is only fitting for me to explain the details of said baby, and yes I did custom make my rig like a mad scientist with a soldering tool.


Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz


Asus P6T DH Deluxe V2


Mushkin 6144MB DDR3 RAM

Hard Drive:

(plus I use a 2.5 TB NAS to store big files, I love my Drobo!)

  • OCZ Vertex 60 GB SSD
  • Kingston 128 GB SSD
  • Western Digital Raptor 128 GB

Video Card:

ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series (1 GB DDR5 RAM)


22″ Samsung Synmaster 223ew


Logitech G930 Headset


Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000


Razer DeathAdder Black Edition Ergonomic

Operating System:

Dual Boot: Ubuntu Linux 11.04 / Windows 7™ Premium 64-Bit

Computer Case:

Thermaltake Armor+MX Black Steel ATX Case

I will likely be expanding on this list depending what other specifications you guys are interested in knowing.. (talk nerdy to me!)

Also, I’m always looking to upgrade so if you have any tips on where to get good components or what to get so my baby will keep plugging away when I use super massive video editing programs as well as handling first-person shooters on “Very High graphics.” Isn’t that all we ever want? ≧◔◡◔≦

George, my very own keyboard cat!

    I notice you place SSD’s in your boxen. As time permits: it really comes down to I don’t redo my install that I have tweaked to gills.

    There are 2.5″ adapters that hold one to two SD cards. Mind you those SD cards have adapters for MicroSD. Warranties on Kingston SD/CF cards are lifetime; whereas for their SSDs they are only 3-5 years depending. With an SDXC class set if the case is easy to open you could swap out any installs. With GAG dual, triple or more are plenty easy. My biggest reason for wanting to make this change is all space, electrical and mainly HEAT build up so I don’t have to cool as much. That “perfect” setup photo emailed recently on that Antec box runs at 15-20C most of the time. The old platter drives run fast; and much cooler than SSDs. SSD’s definitely have the speed.

    I’m pretty much at heart an AMD person. More bang for the buck; but this is a sweet board for a quick looke around:
    S5520SCR Intel dual Proc board.

    I don’t buy 98% of the time any boxen off the shelf. I always like to put my own together.
