Default Well its about that time...

I got around to building a new computer again. I sold my old one for $600 to a friend, and so with that money I decided Id build a new one. This is my first AMD computer since my 3200 sempron 6 years ago, I got the CPU for only $100 from a teacher at my school who bought the wrong one and the site he ordered it from wouldnt let him return OEM cpu's. Its normally around $200 so I decided Id just take it.
heres the specs

Phenom II 940 X4 "Black edition" Quad
GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P mobo
Sapphire HD4870
4GB OCZ Reaper Edition
Sony dvd
WD 500GB
Antec Sonata case
Antec Earthwatts 500W psu

not a bad computer, definitley a jump up from my e6600, and I made profit on the computer, it only cost me $523 to build, and i sold my old one for $600. cant go wrong.

I use two 19 inch widesceen LCDs, lol. I'd happily trade them both for one 22 inch screen.
