Default Re: So this is my build

I installed Windows Vista Ultimate x64 and that fixed my problems.
Everything this perfect, but I can notice that Vista is a bit (Not much) slower.
I called Asus Tech Support about my delayed start up, they said the computer is fine, nothing to worry about, it's just a delay in detecting a drive.
So all in all It's awesome and plays my games flawelessly. I won't be doing much overclocking, maybe go to 3.5GHz on my 720 and that's it.
I plan to buy more RAM, a better graphics card, and a new harddrive soon.
So thank you all, and I guess that concludes this thread?

Strange that vista would stop all of your blue screens. Did you use drivers from the CD's or the websites?

I've never had a single blue screen, crash, or hang up in the three weeks I've had my pc. And I've filled up a good 250 gb of programs, images, and what not. Running an phenom II 940 and a biostar790GX with an XFX 4850.

I must have gotten a virus, I decided to put 7 back on it, and it's been up 4 days strait without a snitch.
That's what I get for pirating everything...Lol, but it's all in the game.
Works great now, I guess. I've started school back and am taking ALLOT of courses so I don't have time to really do anything on it but play WoW at night when I feel like it, type papers, and do some research.
I plan to do allot on it on the weekends.

I plan on getting a 4850 or 4890, a better HDD, and more RAM sometime in the next month or so, then for Christmas ask for an X4 So I'll be set for awhile lol
End up playing better games and stuff.

Though I can certainly say, Windows 7 is faster, and from what I've done on the new installation more stable.
They re-did allot of things and made it easy to use and more convenient.
I love it allot more.
