I haven’t posted much this week. Mostly because I’ve been fairly busy with work, and because for a portion of time my computer was down for some small upgrades.
So, I’ll guess I share what I’m rocking now. I’m using a Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0 Motherboard now, with 8 gigs of Corsair memory, still using my GTX 260 graphics card, but I’m now rocking a 120gb OCZ Agility 3 SSD Drive. I also purchased a 240GB version of the drive as well that was a refurb, to be used as my games / essential programs drive. That device however, has to be RMA’d because it was apparently DOA. I installed a couple of my games on the smaller drive that’s meant to be for only the OS because I wanted to see how fast they were going to run. HOLY SMOKES. Boot up time for my system now is like 8 seconds. Its dang ridiculous. Windows 8 is SOOOOO fast now. I was playing STO doing some PvP with max graphics, and I was getting 70 FPS. Again, I didn’t upgrade my video card. Its still my old GTX 260. Very nice. My system now, has a windows score of 7.3 now… WOOOT! lol. Went from 5.9 to 7.3. And that’s because of my memory apparently. I grabbed some very stable Corsair memory, so its not very aggressively fast.
I finally got my phone upgraded. I’m now the very proud, and happy owner of a very large “Phablet”. Yes, I picked up the Galaxy Note II. Its a very nice phone. Its quite big, but I’m getting used to it. It’s very fast, has a nice camera, and the screen is amazing. I would recommend it to anybody who’s thinking about it. however, you really gotta want to have such a large screen. I do a lot of txting, and facebooking, and twittering, so the screen is nice, but maybe other people would be more happy with the GSIII. At some point this week, I think i’m going to try out Cyanogenmod on it. I’m pretty satisfied with the UI on this phone, so we shall see.
Works been kind of a drag this week. Last couple weeks been kinda yucky, and last week was no exception. Gonna have to really focus to get outta this slump. Sucks.
Anyways, I think that about sums it up. TTFN!
