Today (or rather this week) I

say goodbye to an old friend. TheGamer! She was a  beauty of a PC.. I purchased her in 2011, almost 8 years ago. I also replaced her original motherboard with one that I could finally overclock and  took her from 3.4Ghz to 4.43Ghz. She was a dream of a computer  after replacing parts as needed.  I transition now to an I7-7700K with a GTX 1080 and two 4k Monitors.
