Well, I finally sorted out my Windows 8 mess, and I am finally up and running, and slowly start re-installing programs and what not. That should take another week or so. So far, I am loving it. The system is nice and quick, and as we speak, I am downloading and installing Metro2033 from my Steam, as well as Star Wars: The Old Republic to see what this system can do. Sure it’s not exactly the latest games out there, but at least I’ll know what’s what, and see what I need to fix, tweak, or what not. I do know my current video card, an AMD Radeon HD 5xxxx series card (XFX ONE +Edition) is quite old. I still need to get a new case, and sort out my other HDD‘s. I most probably will get a 2 TB HDD for storage and programs.
As far as Windows 8 goes, it’s nice and shiny, and so far I like the new things they have added (Metro UI). I still need to dive deeper into it, and see what other goodies they have. I will keep you guys updated for sure.
And I do have some ideas to implement in terms of this site. This will be an exciting year for sure.
Update: Metro 2033 played pretty crappy, and it’s a clear indication I need a new video card. It was very choppy at best, not slide show bad, but unplayable bad. Company of Heroes played very well. SWTOR, well, I still can’t install it.
