Four years ago, I built my desktop computer. Now it was getting a bit long in the tooth, so I decided to upgrade some of its parts.
- Motherboard: From Abit IP35E to Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3
- Processor: From Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 to Intel Core i7-2600
- Memory: From 2x1GB PC2-6400 DDR2 to 2x4GB PC3-14900 DDR3
- DVD Drive: From PATA to a SATA DVD Writer
The computer’s now fast and powerful. My Harappa Ancestry Project analyses run much faster than before.
Ubuntu had no trouble running after the change. However, Windows XP refused to boot and I have to do a reinstall.
