This post is just under a month late, but anyone who visits here a lot will realize that that is about par for the course! In mid December, I finally decided it was time to do a full on rebuild of my x86 PCs, constituting my Windows games oriented box, and my Linux ‘donkey’ machine.
Basically, the very old Linux box was dying, and my (almost) 3 year old PC was struggling with some of the newer games, including my beloved City of Villains, so it was time to upgrade, and move components around. To keep posts on this site to a reasonable length, I wrote the full saga on my BrightBlack site, so have a look here.
In a nutshell, the new Windows XP box has: Athlon 64 3700+, ELSA GeForce 6800GS, DFI LANparty UT nF4 Ultra mobo, 2GB Hynix RAM and my old Audigy 2 sound card.
