Finally, a new PC

I wasn’t able to run Windows Phone 7 SDK on my old machine and needed a new one.

Got a new PC this week.

Built it myself. It was very easy to do after I got the correct perspective.

1. Understood I needed a developers machine running VMWare and not a gaming machine.

2. Processors vs Threads : Went with AMD Phenom II x6 CPUs

This is what I ordered:
