Updates to the machines

The end of the year means some extra me time and as usual some changes to the machines. Got a NVIDIA GTX 970 for the Windows machine which means that the old GTX 670 has been moved to Ernest's HP XW6600 workstation replacing the original Quadro NVS 295 which is more for large 2D displays rather than 3D. This means Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for everyone at home. We were sticking to CS: Source due to Ernest's machine's weak 3D. The 120GB SSD from the Mac Pro has been moved to the media PC in the living room replacing the WD Black 640GB drive. This means faster boot up and a re-installation of Windows removing lots of junk in the process.
