For the last few years, my only tool for fun and my only job has been playing and making money on my 2004 HP Piece of **** computer. It's got a gig of RAM, and an onboard video card (radeon express 200 series ewwwww)

All games lag for me. I get about 20 FPS on LOL with all low settings. I still do fairly well in games, though. However, I just ordered a sweet new PC!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229285 <---- that's the new PC. Should be here tuesday, wednesday, or thursday.

So I've never been to run another program (i.e. browser, music) in addition to LoL. I've never been able to multitask.

MY QUESTION TO YOU GUYS

Which programs should I download to just be ****ing awesome on Windows 7?
Which music programs / websites do you guys use?
Any other trips / tips / awesomeness that I should do as soon as I get the PC?
Anything Else?

1. If you're planning to use a lot of stuff, get Fences. Free program. Makes it easy as hell to organize things.

2. The link won't load so... I can't see your specs.

3. IF you have an XBox360 controller and you like old games, consider googing some emulators and ROMs/ISOs. Great fun for nothing other than DL time. Along with the EDIT: I'd get a GCN emulator. Your comp looks like it can handle it.

4. Youtube is my music site. Other people use Pandora(Personalized radio station) or Grooveshark(Online MP3 player)

EDIT:Link loaded. Hot damn it looks good.

Can't think of anything else. :P

EDIT2: Better hardware is when you really get to see how good you are. If I was still playing on my laptop, I could not play Maokai like I do now.

Thanks guys ^_^ Yes I use Youtube, Grooveshark, Pandora, and Zune software now for all of my music needs. I just can't have them running while playing LOL or FPS drops to like 8.

Skyrim -_- I used to be ecstatic about it's release, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

Nah, I spent a week playing it on three huge screens and a movie theatre projector on my friends high end PC. I played that ****er out, even the dragon fights got boring :/

I played Skyrim for 30 minutes and fell the **** asleep.

Where are the noobs to stomp? I need to crush people's dreams and aspirations of going competitive and such.

^ This, almost exactly. If I'm not in LoL, I'm in DDO, Guild Wars, Counterstrike Source, or some other PvP game.

Anyone tried Tetrisfriends? It's pretty fun for when you don't have any time.
