Collected my new PC today and busy getting it configured. This is my first desktop so I'm seriously stoked. It's no super computer, but it's a darn lot faster when it comes to rendering than my notebook.

I'm running Core 2 Duo 2.93 Ghz, 4Gb RAM, 500GB HDD - OS, 160GB - Slave, Nvidia Geforce 9800GT 256bit 1024 GDR3 and a 23 inch full HD LG display and Windows 7 64bit.

I'm looking forward to getting into all of the design work I've been wanting to, but never had the patience to do on any of my notebooks. Already playing around in blender a bit, I can seriously appreciate the benefits of a dedicated graphics card.

Now to start saving for atleast a 256Gb SSD to use for my OS and apps and then re-purpose the 500GB for storage. I'd also dig to add another graphics card and an additional monitor, but we'll see, maybe the iPad launches in SA before that.
