Hello fellow readers, it's been a strange day.
I was looking over at my email as I get several emails a day from
different digital distribution game sales sites along the lines of Green Man Gaming,
Good Old Games, Onlive, EA's Origin store and about 10 others.
Of course, I also check Steams news at least once a day.

So after my last major upgrade (and my only upgrade) to my current Core 2 machine, I've decided it's finally time to move on. Not to AMD (for numerous and far too detailed reasons) but to a current Sandy Bridge E platform. Roughly compared to a Core 2 Quad Q9650 (even though my Q9550 is overclocked at 3.6 Ghz), the i7-2700k should give me a good 40% boost in some apps (mostly MT and dependent on CPU) and enough of a boost in games and general productivity to hopefully last me the next 4 years.
