Due to my wife's PC crashing about once an hour and my system requirements having gone up after getting into all this digital artwork I am finally going to get some needed upgrades.

Last night I went to fry's electronics and bought new Mobo, cpu, ram, power supply, Win7 (never used that before), and a new graphics card. The goal is to rebuild my machine and use my existing gear to rebuild my wife's. I hope I'm back within a couple days at least.

Baring any real issues I should be back back tomorrow but we'll see.

Here goes my skill roll :)

I feel your pain. Built two home computers and three for work, and it always seemed I was on the wrong side of the cutting edge. I finally gave up on the building and just bought off the shelf and upgraded components to fit the need. Good luck and hope to see you back here soon.

Looks like I did alright folks. I just have the great fun of reinstalling all my software...boring. I am happy to have a nice clean install when I'm done plus I did some disk partitioning and organizing which I hope will last me a good while. After all is installed I get to make sure I have everything I used to or at least the documents I still want/need.

I have checked all my steam stuff seems to be working and I didn't loose my savegames for Skyrim! (gotta check the important stuff first, lol).

As for all my artwork that's on a drive that didn't get changed. Of course, I do have to reinstall Gimp and get that all back the way I like....that's gonna take a bit :(. I am forever tweaking it. Have to get all my add on stuff reset, try to find my brushes again.

whew..I'm tired already, maybe I go take a nap.
