My Laptop has the original i7... i7-740QM so it'd be a huge change.

PC has arrived, but I'm too tired to set it up (it's almost midnight).

Setting up the new system now. It'll be a while as it needs to churn through all the updates, and I need to reinstall all the crap. I wonder if I should keep both computers running. Can I control both with one set of keyboard and mouse? Hmmm...

EDIT: Yep, Microsoft "Mouse Without Borders"... FREE! I was about to pay for Stardock's Multiplicity, but realized there had to be a freebie around somewhere... And yes, keyboard and mouse works on both, and mouse automatically wraps to the other monitor. Hahaha!

Due to losing my wife Ive not kept up on this .Sorry. Im glad you got your dream system KC. Good for you.

I look back at my post and think how much I didn't know . What was going to happen in my life and to my wife. I couldn't know that. But only 4 months after I posted first in here .....sigh. I used to think in hardware and parts and all kinds of stuff. Now...blah.

My only "complaint"... make that a minor nitpick, is that the mainboard is not the latest and greatest... one of the ASROCK Z370's instead of a Z390, but practically speaking it makes no difference to me. Hehehe. I haven't had a chance to play with the lights inside (supposedly it's RGB)
