I use Speccy from Piriform - the same people who make CCleaner to monitor temps.

Oh great another reason to get a new system, Nvidia is no longer updating drivers for my current systems card.

Good for you, Guybrush! Hard to part with the money, but oh, the rewards!

Guybrush, check out the Windows 7 tutorials in Help and Support. There are some videos and they are very helpful.

Wow! I'm thinking of a new computer in about 6 months and read part of this thread. There's a lot to consider here. I play darkgames myself.

I used to always get someone to build my computer, but I've since moved and don't know anyone where I am. Plus I'm retired so out of the loop.

Are there places online that are really reputable and trustworthy? Or how would I go about finding a company in my area that builds computers? I'm so lost at this.

Just saw you recommended eCollegePC. When I get ready I'll give them a call, but I'll be asking questions here. Sigh.

Jean, there are several on-line compapnies which build computers to your specifications. CyberPower is one and eCollegePC is another, plus there are others. eCollegePC is a small company near me in St. Louis. So far, they have been building up a very good reputation, particularly in customer service. You can read their policies on the website... eCollegePC

Thanks, Drac! I looked at their website and they do look interesting. I like the idea of having a small company build the pc, and when I get ready I'll definitely be talking to you all before I do anything.

I bought my pc in 2009, but it's running Windows XP which Microsoft isn't going to support anymore after next year, so it will be a good time to get a new one.

I'll need to find someone to help me hook it up. With my back these days I can't be getting up and down on the floor anymore.
