My Puget computer is 1 year old and still performs as if it were brand new! I chalk this up to two things. First, the great work by the Puget folks in choosing the best components and taking great care with the build and testing, and second, on my end, keeping it maintained.
Here are the specs of the original build, based upon Puget's Obsidian Workstation:
Motherboard: Asus P8H67-M EVO REV 3.0 Micro-ATX
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K QUAD CORE 3.3GHz 95W
Ram: Kingston 16GB DDR3-1333 (4x4GB)
Video Card: Zotac GeForce GT 430 1GB Silent
Primary Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA 6 Gb/s
Secondary Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA 6 Gb/s
CD / DVD: Asus 24x DVD-RW Lightscribe SATA (black)
Case: Antec Mini P180 (Black)
Power Supply: Antec TruePower 650W Power Supply
CPU Cooling: Scythe Katana 3 CPU Cooler
Keyboard: Microsoft Wired Desktop 600 (Keyboard/Mouse)
Ext. Drive: Western Digital External USB2/SATA 1.0TB Drive with free Automatic Backup and Restore Set-up
OS: Windows 7 Professional: 64-bit OEM SP1
Software: Security-Microsoft Security Essentials
Back in March, I added a Intel-520, 240GB SSD as my OS drive. The Western Digital hard drives are now used for storage, and my Photoshop scratch disk. That is the only change I've made to the build. I may upgrade to 32GB of RAM and a new video card in the future.
So, once again, I thank Puget System's staff for their all their help and for delivering the best system I have ever used. Keep up the great work, Puget!
