I'm currently posting this from [livejournal.com profile] selenite's computer, as mine is ... unavailable. [livejournal.com profile] fordprfct has been doing surgery on Agatha, and is currently seeing if the patient can regain consciousness.

I remember back when he built it for me, looking at components with him in Frye's, and having him tell me pros and cons of various options. "Oh, it's not like I'm going to want a high-end gaming system," I said.

*headdesk* I have eaten those words repeatedly since then. Yeah, nowadays, I most definitely DO want a high-end gaming system. I have a level 80 fairly-well-geared frostfire mage who likes to raid, and I've been intensively working up my priest - she's up to 72 - to become a raid healer, because darn, we need more of those. Freezing up in Dalaran, sometimes crashing on loading into the zone, and intense lag on trying to fly up to Naxx? Unacceptable.

So we went out today and bought more RAM and a new and improved CPU. Hopefully it will help a lot.

Once it works again. The salesman suggested a new higher end CPU than the one [livejournal.com profile] fordprfct planned on after updating the motherboard's bios. [livejournal.com profile] fordprfct did confirm that the motherboard could handle that one. Allegedly it can. But it's not coming up yet. We'll see.

Take away my game machine and hey, I'm posting!

He found the problem. One of the RAM sticks was bad. So just the good one is in right now. Still, OMG what an amazing improvement already! Oh, yes yes yes this is worth it.

Now he's working on updating drivers and add-ons and such. Bless him for being Family Sysadmin/Tech Support.
