The Demise of Windows XP

Hello and welcome back. I need to get this message out there to all the People like us who really tried to hang on the Windows XP. Sorry but the burial is on April 15th like that isn't a bad enough day to begin with.
Here is the skinny. After all this years XP will no longer receive or has security patches written for it. What does that mean. STOP using XP even if that machine is never going to go back on the internet. You can get infected with Viruses, Malware and other malicious hack simply by inserting a infected CD or USB stick or connect to another machine.

ITS NO LONGER SAFE. STOP USING IT.

I am not trilled to write this but its time to move to Win 7 or even 8 but we are not big fan of 8 just yet. Still has some kinks that need to be worked out.
Hope this helps.

Video Cards

Hello again. I just ordered the Video Cards that will power the new office computer‘s 4 22” flat panels. I chose XFX Radeon products for a couple of reasons. Mainly great product and warranty. The cost is not bad either. I would not recommend these cards for a hardcore gamer there you need to spend a good amount more money, but for office use and the occasional Video or game it will do great.

This other card cost a bit more and is a bit more gaming friendlier.

Now we only have to decide on a CD player DVD/BlueRay with Lightscribe. I also will use one of the older CD/DVD drives just for the sake  of loading softwarde. The the computer case supports multiple 5.25" drives.

MotherBoard & CPU

Hello Everyone.


I finally settled on the motherboard and CPU. Both items met the criteria we originally had set for this custom build computer. Also the Motherboard is capable of handling a CPU upgrade for the latest offering AMD is coming up with.

Amazon at this point had the best pricing and also some of the comments are worth reading too. I will blog again once the hardware is here and we are ready to build this monster.

Last minute add on. Just ordered the Hard Drive this morning. You may wonder why I did not ordered the 64 Cache! Too expensive for now. I can always replace them later when the prices have come down some.

Will update in a couple of weeks with Video Cards and DVD/BlueRay player.

Cooler Master V8

The Cooler Master V8 finally arrived. Wow. It’s a monster. It could keep an car engine cool. But given its size and specs I feel very comfortable that I will not have to worry about our CPU overheating. It does take a bit to install it, and because of the weight, I would recommend not to move the computer around too much and if you do, move it gently. But once the machine is placed, you should not have the need for excessive movements.

Next, Memory. I am in the hunt for a good price on G.Skill Ripjaw X DDR3 1600 memory. I will write in the next blog about why G.Skill!

Keep your eyes open for some for future blogs regarding all the hoopla that is building up for the next Windows OS” Windows 8”.

Hope you are all ready for Fall. It is coming fast. Take care.

Computer Build continued!

Hello Everyone! I have finally made a decision on the Motherboard.(it could change again)


GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AMD 900 Series Motherboard

Needless to say the most interesting observation is that we are going to use AMD as our CPU and not Intel. I will mention the CPU a bit later. One of the factors that came in to play is that this board supports Dual Bios, over clocking and also has 4 PCI Express x16. There are many more great reasons for us to have settled on this board. Just Google the Board name above and you will find all the specs you might be interested in.

Here is a link to Amazon with more details and reviews: http://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GA-990FXA-UD3-990FX-SATA-Motherboard/dp/B0055QYKQO

AMD Phenom II 1090T Black Edition Six Core CPU

As for the CPU this AMD chip is giving us 6 cores and AM3 Socket at a speed of 3.2GHz. more than enough for a very powerful desktop computer that will be able to support 4 monitors with 2 Video Card. Over all the CPU is giving more Bang for the buck compared to a Intel Chip in the same class. Like with the Motherboard I suggest you Google the Internet for the specs and reviews. We are excited to build this machine and test it in a strenuous everyday condition.

Here is another Link that is very useful: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/core-i7-875k-core-i5-655k-unlocked-multiplier,2641-6.html


I chose to include the Amazon links because the reviews are very interesting.

Next Blog will discuss our choice of CPU Cooler and Video Card we are leaning too.

Thanks for your interest and please don’t hesitate to comment or e-mail us with questions
