Many Bothans died to bring you this information! Computer Specs inside!
First off, I was a bit under the weather recently, so I sort of slipped off the 5 comments a day. I feel a bit better now and hoping that the pain completely goes away. I had wanted to post Thursday night and last night as well, but I didn't feel like posting MORE old captions that people have already seen.
I felt like I wanted to create a new caption that I made with the new computer, and people had made suggestions that I show the awesome capabilities (well, when I come up with the rest of the money for an SSD, SLI Video card setup, etc ...) of this new CPU, so that was a good start on what I figured would be really easy.
Well, you know how hard it is to find hot women on NEWISH PC computer technology? There are lots of slutty women posing in front of beige computers with 17 inch old school CRT monitors, and there are some posing with Apple products (BOOO!) but not a whole hell of a lot of gaming PC's. I'm not sure why, since nude geek girls seems to be on the rise. Finally I found the picture I used in the caption, which in addition to the odd choice of headgear, had almost the same style case as the one I used (they are both Cooler Master HAF - High Air Flow - cases.) and I also have a large screen Dell monitor. This was probably as close as I could get to my actual system and display.
From there, I forgot that I have many fonts that aren't native to the system, so I would have to find my font folio CD .. but then I remembered I had saved the old font directory so I just used that to install all my missing fonts. Glad to know that I was smart enough to think about that a week or two ago when preparing to migrate things from the old computer.
It was a given to use Calvin, as he is one of the biggest commenters here AND I think he might've been the first to suggest the whole, "show off Dee's new computer" idea. Plus there is that whole "Caitlyn's Mask" thing .. that contraption seems to be part helmet and part mask.
After having dealt with the Haven Servers recently, I made a crack about the hamsters going on strike or something like that, so that reared its ugly head in the caption too.
In all, its just a fun little meta caption that broke the ice on the new computer (or broke its cherry) so that I can start captioning again on a regular basis.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: I have no trouble with geek speak here on the blog. Have you updated your computer recently? Do you want a new computer? We can talk about MY computer, or give each other our specs. What things do you want to add to your computer when its time to upgrade?
My specs right now:
i5 3570K ivy bridge overclocked to 3.8 per core on air (I will push more as I get time)
Hyper 212 EVO processor cooling fan .. frigging incredible!
Corsair CX600 power supply, should be able to handle the SLI when I upgrade
16 gig of DDR3 RAM set at 22.214.171.124
GT 550ti with factory overclock (I haven't had time to mess around yet)
HAF 912 case with extra fans set up in push-pull config
Western Digital Caviar Black 640 gig boot drive
Western Digital 500 gig D drive (pulled from old system with all storage dumped onto it)
1 TB Seagate Free Agent external HD (for backup)
ASUS DVD burner
24" Dell widescreen monitor (main)
19" Gateway 4:3 viewing set up as secondary monitor
Altec Lansing stereo speakers with floor unit subwoofer
What is wanted:
SSD 128 gig Boot Drive .. probably intel or OCZ
1 TB internal sata 6 Western Digital Caviar Black storage HD
another GT 550ti to set up in SLI
LG Blu Ray burner
more USB 3.0 inputs
Maybe at some point, an upgrade to a i7 3770k ivy bridge.
