22.7 Things To Do - #4 Build My Dream Computer


If you look at Nerissa Pacio's original list (via Van Wilder's Xanga) #9 is to blow her annual bonus on Jimmy Choos. I think it's crazy to spend that much money on shoes, but then again I think it's perfectly fine to spend that much on a computer. Who's the crazy one now.

After about 5 months of researching, 1 month of ordering, and one long weekend of building and tweaking, my rig is finally complete. #4 on the list was to build my dream computer. This PC will play a major role in some other things on my list. But this isn't just any computing beast. It's as quiet as it is powerful. Like my farts. Har. I could build 25 of these things, lay them all on the ground 5x5 to use as a mattress, and stil have a good nights rest while running Crysis in the background. To learn more about quiet computing, check out SPCR.

For anyone that's interested, here are the specs:

Q9450
GA-P35-DSL
WD 6400AAKS
CORSAIR XMS2 DHX 4GB
ANTEC Solo
Corsair 520-HX
MSI 8800GTS
Scythe Ninja Mini
Scythe Ultra Kaze
Vista Ultimate x64

Credit to the Do bros for teaching me everything I know about this stuff. I remember spending long summer days at their place as a kid building computers, then taking them apart, only to build them again. Oh the memories.

So there you have it. 7.3 things done, 22.7 things to go. Until next time...

I don't get the math: 17.3 + 22.7 = 40 things total.
