So now I'm upgrading my PC a little. I've just put in a new 500GB SSD in my computer, reinstalled Windows on it and... wow. This thing boots faster than my LCD screen turns on. This means I now need to write in my password in the dark (when I hear the windows sound after start-up). If I'm fast enough, it even logs in before my screen finally turns on. lol :P
After that I installed the latest drivers for my graphics card and bloody hell; all of a sudden I can run Far Cry 3 at max settings (at 1080p) with better performance than I had before. That just shows you, always have the latest drivers installed.
I also used a professional color calibration tool to improve the way I view images on my screen. Wow, what a difference in clarity there is all of a sudden. The colors all look so much more natural now. No matter what you're looking at. I highly recommend trying this out if you know someone with such a tool.
Next I'll probably put in some extra RAM, upgrade from 8GB to 16 or 32 GBs.
Now for the extremely tedious task of sorting out 1.7 TBs (yes Terrabytes) of files I had on my old hard drive and figuring out how to install all the programs I had. I don't even have trueSpace installed yet.
