Guild Wars 2 has resurected the spirits of Dissb. After 6 months of hibernation, I have come back with a vengeance. I am working on a new custom built website which will include many new features, a shoutbox and forums. If you have any ideas of what you would like to see, please share your thoughts. Remember, my intentions are always to help the gaming community.
This will be the first game I cover from start to end and hope to provide innovative ideas and tips, which include but are not limited to:
• PVP – Leveling, Strategies and Tricks
• How to Make Money via the Auction House.
When I first decided to start my blog I really wanted to explain what was going on in my head during PVP situations through narrative HD videos. However, I was hampered by my 3 year old Alienware Area 51 with Windows XP. I decided it was time to invest in a new computer if I was going to take this blog seriously.
Last week with the help of a friend I configured my new Alienware.
- Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, English, w/Media
- Intel Core i7 960 (3.2GHz, 8MB Cache)
- 12GB Triple Channel 1333MHz DDR3
- 4GB GDDR5 AMD Radeon HD 6990
- 1TB – SATA-II, 3Gb/s, 7,200RPM, 32MB Cache HDD
To be honest, I was really not all that excited as I felt my current computer was just fine playing Rift. This is also the 6th Alienware computer I ordered in the last 10 years. When Fed Ex came to deliver my computer I was surprised when he asked if I could help him unload the box. When I got to his truck I was pretty shocked to see the size of the box, it was huge. Together we moved the computer to my house.
After sitting in the foyer of my house for 6 hours I decided to open the box. I went to work and after tearing through two boxes I was finally able to pull the computer out. As I was laying the computer on the floor, one of the side panels flew open. I was in utter amazement to see a LED light illuminating inside my computer showcasing all of its components. Keep in mind it wasn’t even plugged in.
After getting it all plugged in, I finally decided to power it up. I thought I had seen it all until my computer literally started moving. The top of the computer was broken up into 8 separate arrow shaped pieces which slowly raised up and revealed these inconspicuous vents allowing air to pass through them. I know Alienware provides a ton of cool features, but this just blew me away. What else could I say other than, “WOW”.
