Built myself a new PC

So for the last week or so I've been scouting the net for new parts to build a Decent PC / Gaming Rig and now I've finally finished.
So far I'm really liking it! Cranks the shit out of games.

Here's what I've got:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition Triple Core 2.8GHz - Over Clocked to 3.3GHz XD
Memory: G.SKILL 4GB kit (2GB x 2) DDR3-1333 (PC-10600) CL8-8-8-21
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200.12 SATA2
GFX Card: XFX ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5
PS: Corsair HX-520 ATX 520W 120mm Modular Power Supply
Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout
Monitor:  Viewsonic VX2233WM Black 22" Widescreen 16:9 Full HD 1920x1080 5ms 18000:1

PS: Still waiting for my Xbox to arrive from repair... pretty sure they lost it along the way somewhere, being 3 weeks and all. sigh.


Xbox Red Ring E74 - My old friend...

So I just turned on my xbox after just playing it 20 minutes before and I was welcomed with a Red ring in the lower right corner (E74) basically my GPU is fucked.

This is the second console I've owned that this same error has occured. Words can't describe my rage right now. Should I fork out another $400 bucks for new console? (Would be my 4th console) seeing how my warrenty has expired and it's not the RROD.




Currently playing my way through Bionic Commando, I'm 55% of the way through the game and have only just started liking this game, it does take a while to get past the controls and repetetiveness but now I can say this game may just be worth the money. Also the sound score in this game is awesome.
