Yay I'm back.



Again.



Or something like that.



For those of you who've actually been wondering where I dropped off the face of the earth too, I'm stationed on the USS Carl Vinson now and I was on a Gulf Deployment and so forth and so on and even though I've been back since August I just now got back to checking in on TGU. Heh. What a slacker.


I hav e all kinds of goodies now though! MWhaha. My Laptop is running off Linux now (weee.... yeah, windows went craptacular after it got virused because my antivirus was 6 months out of date.... go figure........... figured it was a good time for a drive wipe and a new OS.... what better os than Linux? rahrah I love Linux....)




And I built me a new desktop. He he he.

2x Dual Core AMD Opteron Italy 465 1.8Ghz Chipsets
Tyan Thunder 2895 Motherboard
8 GB Corsair XMS Low Latency RAM
2 TB HDD Space in RAID 5
2x 7800 GTX nVidia XFX 256Mb Graphics Cards in SLi
Creative Soundblaster Pro Audigy 4
800W PC Power and Cooling PSU

Monitor: 62" Toshiba DLP Rear Projection TV

Hells yeah I love my monitor. But god is it heavy and hard to move around it weighs as much as I do with the TV stand!


Oh and yeah needless to say there hasn't yet been a game that can even begin to slow her down.... hehehe. I love computer overkill.

Nice rig you've got there. How does it perform in 3DMark06?

I did an initial run on it and got 4200 points, which I'm sure is far below what you'll be getting...

Hey look! It's Volkov! Long time no see! Of course, that's also my fault, I've been away for a while myself.

Definitely a sweet system. Makes mine look like a pda.

Isn't is sort of sad that the New Memebers forum is part of the Dead Forum Archive?
