New Compy Toys

With the coming of the much anticipated World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade expansion coming out next week (yes, I've preordered at GameStop already), I need my computer in tip top computing shape. But sadly, the pride of my company, Windows Vista, desires to thwart me. As I've mentioned previously, the one thing Vista gobbles up more than anything is RAM. Warcraft shares in that lust, and thus, unless I want to reboot to XP, performance in Warcraft is varies from excellent to unbearably thrashy.

So, I sucked it up, closed my eyes, and typed in my credit card number.

When combined with my new video card and some liberal overclocking, my computer shall again be a powerhouse.

Not that I expect anyone to want it, but please email me if you are interested in my old processor or RAM.
  • AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket 939.
  • 1GB of OCZ Gold EL RAM. Technically DDR400, but with overvoltage, reaches DDR500 at crazy timings (2-2-2-8 if I recall).

I'll accept the best offer I get for either of these. I'm also selling my EVGA E-Geforce 6800 GT PCI-e, but I suspect there's something wrong with it (overheats too easy), so it's totally as-is.
