Computing » Computer specs

Referring people to here is easier than typing everything out manually. I also have a list of retired computers and their specs.

Main workstation

I decided to upgrade after eight years. Never in my life did I think I’d go AMD. Got the graphics card for only $200, too; whole cost was, like, $1100? Never could’ve done that with Intel and Nvidia
