Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Get Windows 7 04/08/2014

This review is from: Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Better than original Windows 8

Cons: Nowhere near as smooth and streamlined as Windows 7

Other Thoughts: 8.1 is definitely an improvement over 8.0, I'll say that. But neither can hold a candle to 7. Microsoft is up to its old tricks again with the alternating good-bad releases of operating systems. It almost seems like they purposely release a bad one to make the good ones look better. Let's review:

Windows 98 Second Edition: great
Windows Millenium Edition: awful
Windows XP: great
Windows Vista: awful
Windows 7: great
Windows 8/8.1: awful

Definitely skip Windows 8 and either get Windows 7, wait for the next Windows, or go Linux.

Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Always a great value

Cons: Not as fast as an SSD

Other Thoughts: I've used over a dozen of the WD Black Series drives without a single problem. They'll continue to be my go-to platter drive as long as SSDs stay too expensive.

AMD FX-4350 Vishera Quad-Core 4.2 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD4350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, hell of a lot cheaper than the Intel equivalent

Cons: Wish they still made the Phenom II series.

Other Thoughts: Cruising along as the heart of a system built for Photoshop. I built a Phenom II system in 2010 for Photoshop and it works great to this day. I went with the Vishera as the logical next step in performance. It works excellent.
