Jeffs Reviews

I review computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, kitchen gadgets and tools. Almost all I know about computers comes from hands on learning on the internet on my own, no classes or college in computers. I have built a few computers on my own and do all the work for all the reviews I write, contacting the companies myself and asking for things I am interested in purchasing myself. I work hard to bring you my opinions of the things I review and hope you enjoy my writing.

New Computer

Boy am I busy. I received my new computer and it is nice. When I was waiting for it to be made I would check out the site and dream about what it would be like to have such a better computer than my older one and saw the price of the processor that is one step higher than mine go down in price. When I was purchasiing the computer and finalizing the order the price difference between the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ and the 5200+ was about a hundred dollars, now its $6. I asked the company about it and a very nice sales rep said the price went down, the supplier does that from time to time. So I unpack my computer plug er in and lo and behold, it has been upgraded to the better one. Thanks, CyberPower. The L2 cache is double the size, it works great. The processor is rated at 7.6 Ghz or so depending on the site you test at. I will not have to worry much about game requirements for some time., the main reason I upgraded to a better computer. It is really nice in games that are CPU hungry and one, Flight Sim X it rocks on. Well, its really cold here and I have to help the kids get off to school, -20 here in Minnesota. BRRR!!!
