Kitsune of the PC Master Race
What I gathered from Myr's comments in the early pages was "Yeah, your problem is the software, not the hardware", which is basically where I'm coming from. Software can tax the CPU, but that's about it. It has nothing to do with bad RAM, incompatible parts being ordered, or anything of that nature. The point is, the hardware failed. So no matter how good or bad the software is, it was the hardware that was the point of failure. Software would have done nothing to accelerate this.
