My computer configuration
You usually need some special equipment if you're going to take your hobby seriously. With computers and the Internet it's really not so difficult: you need a computer and an Internet connection, and you're ready to go! You can get started even with the most basic set-up. If you do buy more extravagant equipment, then of course there are certain benefits, such as faster technology and better graphics, and these are necessary for certain new games and graphics applications. I like to tinker with my computer to make it better and faster.
What I pay particular attention to with my computer
The operating system, processors, hard drive, optical disc drive, card reader, lots of interfaces and above all, the graphics, need to be perfect. I've equipped myself with a particularly quick Internet connection so that surfing the Web is as enjoyable as possible. Now I have my PC equipped so that I can get the most out of my favourite Web pastimes. With the improved graphics, I can play the newest games, my speakers ensure perfect sound and my hard drive has enormous memory space, meaning there is room for everything I want.
Currently I have the following installed on my computer:
|Processor:||Intel® Core™ i7-920|
|Motherboard:||ASUS P6T Deluxe V2|
|Data storage:||6,144MB DDR3 Triple Channel 1,600MHz (PC3-12800)|
