Quad Core Project

















Finally got the parts for my quad core pc project, the case looks nice and installation on it was very easy.

Had a problem with the motherboard and the power supply not having enough of those molex thingies.

Gonna post some pics and screenshots on the site, however without further tweaking and just a basic install of windows xp pro sp2, Intel's Quad Core rocks! Coming from a 2.8 ghz Pentium 4 this is so awesome, played Half-life 2 without any glitch or skips.

Been using it for 3 days now, this baby is fast like lightning compared to my old pc Smile Pretty stable to, only time it crashed was when I tried Playstation emulation and I guess the CDR plugin crashed the system.

Amazingly, after so many years I can now emulate the sony playstation at full speed!!! lol I almost cried when I played Tekken 3 and the whole video was playing like it was in fast forward.
