Re: [Chat] New computer

Got the i5. If I wasn't a member of Team Helix, an Inspiron would've been sufficient for the other things I do.

Yeah, I understand. I got a refurb video card because of TH and what we do. It is nice to have it, but a cheaper card would otherwise have been fine. Good folks here, working on something together.

Your i5 is more than adequate, it runs circles around everything else. I'm running a Phenom II, which is way behind the new core processors.

Yep, that's for sure.

I'll be happy to run circles around anything! Wonder if Sorto will confirm my suspicion that I truly was (technically still am) slowest.

Re: [Chat] New computer - very cool!

There may be some who stopped, so its not likely you were really slowest

My quad core seems to unfairly rack up points.
Not the challenge of the much older boxen of the past.
Hopefully the more powerful boxen will deliver victory to our children! (Or sooner!!!)

Re: [Chat] New computer

I don't know about slowest. My few remaining boxen are getting ancient. I won't be looking for anything new for some time now and, even then, depending on some family circumstances and priorities.

They are still meeting their deadlines and chewing everything quite thoroughly, though, so it's all good.

Thanks for that. Still, multiple old computers are faster than one old computer. Heck, you reach a milestone pretty much daily.

Don't feel too slow, I've still got a 1.33ghz, T-Bird folding on a Linux machine...

When I looked up the XPS8500, it was shown with an i7, but looks like they come with an i5 also. The i5 will be blazing for you! More than adeguate! Great move!
