FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Updating my rig part one: Case & Motherboard
Posted on Saturday, April 28 2007 @ 01:17:21 Eastern

Not many of you will know this, but I've been having increasing difficulty using my Hell Dell as of late. My brother, the one who is servicing the thing, has decided that it is, in fact, a lost cause. The motherboard had to be replaced, the graphics card nearly needs replacing, the modem's stuffed and the DVD/CD-RW no longer reads DVDs.

Being the ever-so-conscious one he is, he's sending the parts here one at a time, with him installing them once he gets a chance. I'd do it, but he's the one with the A+ international certification in computer maintenance and operation.

He announced that he'd be making it a couple of hours ago, and now he's sent over two parts, the case and the motherboard.

Step One: The Case
Well, I don't know what type of case it is, but it sure is funky looking. The box isn't much help, as all it says is "Case" on the side, with a strange corporate logo. The case itself has a DVD drive and CD drive, 2 front mounted USB ports, and I don't really know how else to describe it.

Step Two: The Motherboard
I didn't actually see the motherboard, as he installed it into the case before he sent it here. Well, at least I hope so: the motherboard box contained an instruction manual, an orange cord, a CD of drivers, an AMD sticker, some installation instructions and nothing else. According to the front of the user's manual, it's a S series GA-M61VME-S2 motherboard with Dual-Ch DDR2 800, SATA 36b/s, 10/100 LAN and RoHS compliant.

Don't ask me what the heck that means, I have less of an idea than you do.

If anyone can tell me if it's a good card or not, that'd be great!
