Some of you, my dear 3 readers, may know that I've always been a Mac OS X user and I love it!
But every love story has to come to an end.
Recently I had to buy a new computer and for many reasons I opted for an assembled PC, oddly enough it wasn't for an economic factor.
The two main reasons are that I need a nVidia graphic card and Apple doesn't sell any mac with it and that I feel in love with tiling window managers.
The hardware is nothing fancy (affiliate links):
- Intel core firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz
- Asus motherboard
- Corsair 600T special edition, this was the least ugly case I could find. Actually, I like it!
- Corsair memory, 2x4GB
- Msi GeForce GTX 670, this was the only available 670 at the moment
- Corsair power supply
- WD caviar black 1T
The case in huge! I was used to a tiny MacBook Pro 13" and now I have this big thing under my desk!
But overall it's a really good case, it has 2 big fans so it always run cool, even while playing for many hours, and it doesn't make a lot of noise. Also the 5 USB are on the front panel, so they are really convenient.
I'm not an hardware-guy so I don't have much to say, next: which OS and DE I'm using and why I chose it.
