machine this time

How did I buy it ? well in the most dissapointing manner ever possible !

To start with I had less time to search for a good one , but I thought AMD phenom with 6 cores would be a nice one . The one which was nice wasn't available in the local market and the Fx series seemed to costly for my budget , hence went for AMD A8 processor err actually APU - Advanced Processing Unit which includes a GPU combined with a 4 core processor .

It all sounds well and fine but I still don't know what prompted me to go for a Digilite motherboard especially after the case that my MSI motherboard died ?

I guess it was all because I never trusted Gigabyte and I also know that ASUS motherboards would die, so hence went for something which is completely out of market . But this motherboard has AMD chipset in it which is a plus point in my opinion .

Final config is : AMD A8 3870 with AMD Radeon HD 6550D
motherboard is Digilite AL 75M

Well a 4 GB ram and a SATA DVD writer to go with it , dont even know what brand it is !

Its a contrasting reality that my choices were Nvidia external to ATI/AMD on board, not even on board its on processor itself . The other one is MSI board to some board called digilite which no one has heard of .

Demise of a machine

http://look-pavi.blogspot.in/2005/09/my-own-computer.html

Some of the nice memories associated with it .

As thepost says september of 2005 was when I got my own computer where I assembled all the parts and actually cherry picked the parts where I remember going to a small time dealer so as to get all the AMD options , next was to not be satisfied with the dealer, chose my processor before hand and even went to the motherboard distributor toget the motherboard !

Now the same motherboard has been submitted to the repair centre for repairs .

This time its an entirely new story :(
