Bought myself an upgrade for my desktop last week as the old one has been locking up for no particular reason. Got an Asus Crosshair motherboard, not to be confused with the ATI Crossfire technology as this board runs the nVidia nForce 590 chipset with SLi capability. I’ve got an Athlon X2 Dual Core 4200+ processor to go in it and a pair of nVidia fanless 7900GS video cards. What I didn’t realise was that I had DDR memory in my old rig and need DDR2 in the new one so I’ve had to purchase some new memory which I didn’t want to do 🙁

I’ve got it all in my old PC case which has Acousti quiet, dust-proof fans thoughout (2 in and 2 exhausts) with a PSU that contains an intelligently controlled thermal circuit that controls the fan speed. The CPU cooler is a Zalman Super Aero Flower with an adjustable FanMate controller which along with the Samsung SpinPoint disks should all add up to very little on the noise front 🙂

Memory should be here tomorrow… Watch this space 🙂
