A New Computer for Diane

Well, not really “new”, but “newly upgraded”.  In fact, I replaced everything except the case and the monitor. Cost $700. Here’s what she got:

1. New motherboard. Required for the new processor

2. New processor. 8-core AMD

3. New memory. 16 gigs RAM

4. New Solid-State drive (not actually a hard disk)

5. New power supply (quieter)

6. New video board

7.  Windows 8.1

This thing is a WHOLE lot faster than the old system. Programs load almost instantly, and boot-up is about 20 seconds. Diane is pleased….
