Last weekend i finally managed to build my new computer. It’s really nice. My goal was to build one that will be able to run StarCraft 2 without problems, and even after years it won’t get all that slow. I think i managed.

  • AMD Phenom II X4: quadcore beauty, for teh power
  • 4GB Corsair DDR3 memory
  • Gigabyte 880G motherboard: micro ATX, because that’s what i planned, even if it turned out different
  • Saphire Radeon HD5670: not the strongest, but just what i need
  • Western Digital CaviarBlue 1TB HDD: don’t really need that much space, but it was sooo cheap…
  • LG Flatron 21.5″: for widescreen entertainment—it’s huge and bright
  • plus a Logicool wireless mouse+keyboard, Sanwa woodbox speakers, Zalman CPU cooler, GMC case

I installed Windows 7 and Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, just as it was on the laptop. With Wendy‘s help i already migrated all my documents, music and video, just some programming stuff and the server root is left. And yeah, StarCraft 2 runs without much problem.

I don’t have any high quality pic, just what i made with my phone.
