Well last Sunday my beast with Windows 7 Ultimate finally died sad.png R.I.P. to 5 years faithful service.

So I go to WalMart and look at their cheap HP Pavilion PCs, They all have Windows 10 Home Edition,8GB DDR4 Ram,360 GHZ Processor,and AMD Ryzen VGA..I'm thinking at first ohmy.png None would play my stuff, Ebay here I come again..But then I thought mellow.png Well CVPI19 said it would play NFS HighStakes Veg Patched fine..So I knuckled down,saved some bucks by buying one,and tried it out..It not only plays NFs HighStakes fine with Veg Patch and with graphics settings on it maxed out (1600 X 1200) but also plays the highly demanding EuroTruck Simulater 2 with no lag ohmy.png . And this is just out of the box since you can't mod this thing without changing the motherboard and powerpack since it don't have no extra slots or hookups for a graphics card.

One thing I couldn't do was score it's performance as it seems Windows 10 took that feature away..But here's a comparison of my old and new PC.:

I still might sup this thing up though, There's some games it won't play according to this thing I got called Can I Run It? Though to be certain I'm gonna defy their logic and try to play WHAT EVER I WANT anyway and see what happens, If something don't work I'll know I need to sup this machiene up some day.
