InExpensive AMD x64 computer

Well I just put together an InExpensive AMD x64

AMD x64 1660 single core cpu & Gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2P motherboard

It was on Sale at Fry's Electronics for $79.99.

Used a spare tower case, DVD combo drive, 1tb Samsung SATA HD.

It goes to show that if you try you just might succeed. Ain't win 7 great!!!!!

I know some of those hot AZ Deserts, was born in Phoenix (the year is no longer important). But, the problem is I can't go home again, some idiot put a Baseball Park on top of the house I was born in (yes I was born at home; something that happen a great deal back in. . .).

That's great!, at least over in your head of the woods you can find great computer bargains, not too many around here, unfortunately. I'm still sitting on a pentium3 w/ 192MB ram,

Not bad for not having a video card installed other then the MB. I put together one here recently (the guy wanted to use his old nvidia 256 Mb card—don't remember the series), and the best it would do was 2.1—just enough to get Aero—even with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 2.5GHz processor.

Thanks Lee,

This is my 6th win7 test computer install

My one x86 has a NVidia GeForce FX 5500 & only gets 2.3 on the WEI

So I was relatively impressed by just tossing this together today.

I will let it run a few days before I start changing things. Burn-In time till RTM
