New desktop computer – The pictures

From the Newsletter of 23 – 29 August, 2009:

You will all be happy to know that the new computer has arrived and we will have a system using an Intel Quad Core i7 CPU, a Gigabyte M/B with the X58 chipset and six GBs of DDR3 RAM; two 1TB HDDs and an LG CD/DVD drive…all SATA; a generic black ATX case (smaller dimensions) with a 650 watt PSU and an ASUS 1GB video card. For those of you who are interested in having a look, it will be on show at the Main Meeting next Tuesday.

On behalf of the club members a big thank you to Bill Parry and those who assisted him with the specifications.
