So I bit the bullet and ordered parts to build a new machine, been 5 years since late upgrade;

MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard[^]
AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor[^]
2 X CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory[^]
Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive[^]

I'm in the process of doing a full data backup, just in case and started to line up all the software that needs to be installed and it's like a garage it's so full of old stuff that I don't use very often or at all, a ton of vital stuff that I use a lot. It's going to be an under taking but I've been wanting to do it for a long time, ever since SSD prices have gone down. The only problem is my C drive started to fill and I bought another 1TB drive and started putting apps on it so it's a split system and I can't do a clone so have to do a fresh install which is good.

So now the hardest part, waiting for the parts to arrive.
Have you ever just looked at someone and knew the wheel was turning but the hamster was dead?
Trying to understand the behavior of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
