Default At last they have arrived....

My computer bits, I ordered at the beginning of December 2005 have finally arrived.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ (Socket 939) - Retail
Gigabyte K8N Pro SLi nForce4 SLi (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard
OCZ 4GB (4 x 1GB) PC3200 Dual Channel Platinum Series CAS2
BFG GeForce 7800 GTX OC 256MB (2 x in SLI mode) GDDR3 VIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)

Wow, now this is fast.......

Just going to do a benchmark, without overclocking it.

we go to work. Atleast that's how I get money.
And I'm guessing that other ppl work too, or use their dads money.

I think it's because I'm a Networks engineer and an RF engineer for all of the Yorkshire area.

It may sound like good money, but they make you work for it, very long hours inc weekend.

No social life as well, but I'm going to retire at 50
