1) 2006 – the original
- Intel c2d E6600 @ +-3.2GHz
- 2*1GB DDR2 ram
- nvidia 7900gt
- 2*raid0 320gb
2) 2010 – v2
- +2*1GB ram = 4GB ram
- +1TB storage = 1640GB
- ATI Radeon 4800
somewhere in between my power supply exploded and got replaced, but we’re not counting that one!
3) 2012 – v3
- +256GB SSD
And it’s all still running fine.
Currently equipped with windows 8.
This post because I read on a random forum (tweakers.net) about “old computers” and “being worth the trouble of upgrading”.
I’m fond of the idea that my 6 years old pc still runs every piece of software as it should!
So yes, I’m convinced it’s worth the trouble!
(A nice I7 with 16GB DDR3 and a 670gtx sounds great tough…)
