Video Card

The practically throw-away videocard (GF 7200GS 256/64bit PCI-E) which came with our new PC unit was useless in current high-end games so I went back to the local store and replaced it (plus additional cash) with GF 9500GT 512MB/128bit PCI-E.

I re-installed NFS:Undercover and Crysis and my system now chews these games to pieces! Now, I can't wait to finish these games and move to Fallout 3 and GRID.

Unplanned Upgrade

Our 3-year old AMD-based home computer just died yesterday. But as we're so dependent on internet, the decision to buy a new unit was made in less than 10 seconds.

Our new unit is based on Intel Core2Duo 2.6GHz with 2GB DDR2 RAM and 256MB PCI-e Videocard. Post-processing NEFs now is so much faster!

Now, I'll start selling our unused computer parts (that are still OK but can't be used in our new system anymore) in a local forum...
