I'm loving it, the speed is unreal, you don't recognize it everywhere, but when you do the stuff that requires that Intel I7 stuff, it shines.
I bought three things (okay four things) the night the PC came.
Crysis - the benchmark video game used for all processor tests - modern day warfare game, when everything is alive and moving, trees that are shot down by bullets fall and bend and break other trees as they fall, just amazing the stuff that interacts, you can see why it taxes processors.
BioShock - okay, a zombie game, who'da thought it - lol. Pretty cool too.
A wireless Microsoft Gaming controller that pushes my hand coordination to the extreme, but it is lightning fast and vibrates with the action.
Movie Edit Pro 16 HD - the dream is finally here, software AND a computer that can handle HD flawlessly and it does. I think it worth mentioning, if you video in MPEG-4 format, you need to pay royalty rights (under $5) above the cost of the software, but it was well worth it since my HD camera does that format and I don't need to convert anything.
There are over 5000 effects that you can use in this edit software - each scene can have its volume, contrast color, etc., changed so that visually and audibly everything is seamless. The fades are great and I'm just learning.
I can finally do the Bud2 video I've always wanted to do
and now I can use my camera to the fullest and watch out Youtube, I'm going to town - finally. It was depressing trying to edit any of the footage at about 5 frames a second, now I match the 30fps of the cam and could go well beyond that.
So, having fun. Still loading software, it is amazing how many programs you build up in your computer over the years - and nuts how many you use frequently.
