Definatly an upgrade

Really happy with my new PC, arrived this morning, so happy right now that i don't work Fridays =)
This is why i needed a new one..


The obligatory shot of the box. Much bigger than i expected, i had real trouble getting it through the door!






I love that pcs uses palit cards, they look soo good. (yes i know aesthetics don't really matter)


New setup


I'm really happy with this, love how easily it does things compared to my last machine. The only thing that annoyed me is that the card reader is halfway down the front and that just looks strange to me.
Two things that are confusing me with this is that the cooler doesn't look like a standard intel cooler (not a complaint), and i was messing around on systemrequirementslab and it said that i have 4GB of video RAM. But its a 1GB card.. dxdiag.exe agrees with it, saying 4065MB, so i don't know why its reading that, any ideas?

And for those who are interested:
