The Transplant

I have gone ahead with my computer transplant since my main PC is acting up. and it was making some really weird noises.

I have used some of my old components to build the revamped PC, and I’m using all the parts thats left to build a media pc since all I need for it is to have a good graphics card to output to the screen.

Current HW:

  • Pentium 4 3.6 Ghz
  • Old Alienware Case
  • 2 GB Kingston Ram
  • Motherboard: MSI P4N SLI
  • Graphics Card: MSI Nvidia 7800 GTX
  • OCZ 600W
  • Creative Audigy Live
  • Sony DVD-/+RW 16x
  • Plextor CD-/+RW 48X
  • 1 x 74 GB WD Raptor 15′000 rpm
  • 2 x 250 GB Maxtor 7′200 rpm (Raid 0)

New Components:

  • Thermaltake Armor Jr.
  • Mother Board: DFI NF680I LT SLI
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe 2.66GHz
  • 750 GB 7’200 RPM
  • LG DVD-/+RW x20
  • 2 GB OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 / 800MHz Dual Channel

Final Result:

  • Thermaltake Armor Jr.
  • Mother Board: DFI NF680I LT SLI
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe 2.66GHz
  • Graphics Card: MSI Nvidia 7800 GTX
  • 750 GB 7’200 RPM
  • 74 GB WD Raptor 15′000 rpm
  • 2 x 250 GB Maxtor 7′200 rpm (Raid 0)
  • LG DVD-/+RW x20
  • Sony DVD-/+RW 16x
  • 2 GB OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 / 800MHz Dual Channel
  • OCZ 600W
  • XP Pro

The only thing about this case is that it is a bit tight, for the full PC I would go for the full tower Thermaltake Armor, the junior is a bit cramped on the inside even though it has a lot of slots. Professional Computers are putting it together and doing the full install, they are really good with their service.

  1. The case looks amazing…I like it very much.
    I wonder how much it will cost in KDs to have a whole new computer with good features???

    How much will cost you that Professional Computers will assemble your hardware and doing the full install? And do they do that for hardware that you did not buy from them?

  3. Muh’d M. Mansour: In KD a fully loaded computer would cost between 700-800 KD. My new setup cost around 350 KD since I am saving on certain parts!

    Waleed: They are doing it for free since I am buying hardware from them, and even though I am bring hardware from other shops as well. They will still work it, I like their policies and if you are nice to them they are nice to you.

    I believe you got the case,ram & mobo from contact pc,they are such a rip off.I got mine upgraded from them,the only dude around
    there he is quite good but their costs aren’t anywhere near reasonable,they are cleverly monopolizing their sole dealership for Thermaltake,DFI,OCZ and some other premium brands.

    By the by,I thought you were gonna upgrade with an 8 series nvidia card,what happened ?

  5. LetmeGo: I know what you mean compared to online their prices are bit rediculous but not too bad really. I have a powerful PC in mind to build in a couple months but right now I just needed a light upgrade! And my 7900 GTX is pretty good Graphics card!
