So I got my new hardware in today... and soon will have a spare computer to leave idling...

Oh I also got a new mechanical keyboard to replace my NMB Win 95 Keyboard produced prior to the Big PS2 to little PS2 switch circa 1994-95... (yes I use an almost 20 year old keyboard)

I bought a Ducky Channel DK9008G2-PRO Mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches... I like browns...

Anyways............................................

Here's my modest new specs... when i get done... tomorrowish sometime... :- D
Ready for BF4 on medium baby... lol...

__________________________Everyday/Gaming Rig____________________________

AMD A-10 6800 (4.1ghz base, 4.4ghz turbo) Richland model 4 core APU (cooled by my Corsair H100)

ASRock FM2A85X Extreme 6 Motherboard

16GB (8GB x 2) Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1866mhz ram with 9-10-9-27 timing

Saphire Radeon HD7770 GHZ edition factory OC'ed video card...

X4 Crucial M4 128GB solid state drives in RAID 0 (already had 2)

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500gb HD (my data drive from god knows how long ago)

Cooler Master ATCS 840 case (like i'd replace this thing in the next 10 years had my last case for 12)

Going to put Windows 8 64bit on this... as it is the only modern non-upgrade OS I have... It's basically 7 anyways... with a touchscreen gui built in more tightly... Maybe get me a touchscreen someday when they drop in price...

_________________________________Server/idle Rig_________________________
(this is what my spare parts will become...)

AMD Phenom II Triple Core 720 BE 2.8 GHZ with a corsair H50 cooler

16GB Corsair XMS DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24 timings

ASRock 870 Extreme3 870 mobo

I may use one of the 60GB onyx drives as a boot drive...

X2 1TB WD Caviard Green HD's in a mirrored array

and whatever PCI-e video card i can find in the pile... I think my HD2770 is in a box somewhere... or I may splurge and buy a 10-20$ card with HDMI out...

All wedged in a Rosewill Blackbone case (34$ on sale a year ago)

Windows 7 64bit probably
_____________________________The other pieces leftover______________

(yes I have enough crap lying around to build a third functional machine that I have no use for whatsoever... probably give it to my brother in-law our aunt)

Sempron 140 SARGAS single core 2.7ghz CPU

ZOTAC GF6100-E-E AM3 (up to 65 watt TDP) NVIDIA nForce 430 MCP Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

2GB (1GB x 2) of Corsair DDR2 800 SDram

X2 OCZ Onyx 64GB SSD's in RAID 0

in an APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Case

Cooled by whatever the hell came with the chip...

Probably some flavor of Ubuntu to see if it tricks amazon into lettign me watch HD content in prime :- ) that is if this thing can handle streaming HD lol... Doubtful...

I don't think it will be that much more intensive Traker... if anything it may run better than 3 as it will be a mature engine...
