PC Upgrade 2011

Christmas was simple this year, did not have a big family gathering. Simple is not bad though and my PC got some love. I built my current PC back in May (2011) with the base stats of Intel i5 3.2 GHz w/ 8GB DDR3 and my old 64GB SSD & GeForce GTS 250. The Holidays brought about some new additions:

Now my system is max’d at 16GB of RAM with two Solid-State Drives thus my operating system is once again booting at lightning speeds and I can keep my main games on the new SSD (such as WoW).
It’s good to be wireless once again with my headset as well!
I’m excited to use my new pen tablet and try out some web comic making eventually.
