New Computer

I finally got a new computer in November after my old one developed some graphical problems (it was dirty contacts between the motherboard and the graphics card) so well I was at the repair shop getting my old computer fixed I ordered a new custom built one.

I am keeping my old computer as a spare and as I have a fair bit of older software that might not like Windows 10 and some programs that I no longer have the installers for like Office 2003.

I also got a free copy of Just Cause 3 with my computer and have been aquiring a few games that could not run on my old computer. so far I have yet to find a game that this computer can't run maxed out. The Hitman: Absolution benchmark was over 100FPS with all settings maxed out.

The specs for it are:
Intel Core i7 6700K 4GHz 8Mb LGA1151
Gigabyte GA-Z170M-DH3 MATX LGA1151 Motherboard
16GB DDR4 2133 PC4-17000 RAM
Gigabyte GV-N970G1 Gaming-4GD GTX970 4GB graphics card
2TB SATA3 HDD
750W Silverstone Strider Plus Power Supply
Windows 10 64bit

One of the things that I really like about this computer is how cool it runs. Even in the current heat both the graphics card and the processor stay under 65C and when at the desktop they are both usually about 5C to 10C above room temperature. It is also a lot quieter than my old computer.
