Not that it has anything to do with this thread, but I wish that the nintendo 3ds came in grey. I'm probably going to buy a blue one today. Oh well...

Um... Odd reply but yeah

Not much conversation will come from your new computer so why shouldn't one bring up a random topic?
EDIT: 444 posts! ^_^

No reason.

Not to be rude, but why do we need to know that you got a new computer? That's nice, but....yeah. I got a new computer late last year but there isn't much need make a thread to post about it. If we are sharing computer specs, this is the one I bought if you want to see it [URL]http://www.microcenter.com/product/388813/G213_Desktop_Computer[/URL]. I added Windows 8, 32GB and Ram and a new fan on top of the out of the box components. :). Yours is nice btw.

Let's hope arty doesn't see this.

jediaction 03-17-2013 09:10 PM

There is nothing wrong with Windows 8. With Arty's complex work, possibly, but it works fine for me. There are a few bugs here and there and driver issues but other than that, it functions similar to Windows 7.

Eh. It adds nothing new to windows apart from a start menu that you will never use

It is 10x faster. They fixed a lot of problems that Windows 7 had. It starts up in half the time and the desktop now loads instantly instead of in previous windows versions (7) where it took another minute to full initiate.

Check out this page. It's pretty informational.

It doesn't boot up 10 times faster. And it has a load of compatibility issues.

Anyway what kind of GPU do you have in your computer?

From personal experience, it runs much faster than Windows 7. If you had issues with it and had boot up problems, sorry.

I have duel video cards, but they are only GTX 550's. My computer is very powerful, but Windows 8 is fast on way slower computers as well. It's a new operating system so they fixed many issues. Yes, it does have compatibility issues, but it all depends on what you are doing. Composing, Adobe software, Autodesk, and other high end software that I use runs perfectly fine so I'm glad I switched. Plus, they are releasing updates.
