  • New computer...

    Well, I've just got lucky. My sister's heading to Western University in September, and she needs a school computer. The old junker we have just hit the crapper, and is beyond repair (tried a full format and reinstall and it still doesn't work), so we're probably gonna be getting a new computer in a month or so.

    We don't want to spend too much, but this is how it's gonna work. We're going to take the computer we have now, rip the video card out, and give that (with an old junk video card, just so it runs) to my sister. Then we'll get a new computer (minus the video card) and bingo, I've got a nice computer with DDR ram (finally my ram will be able to keep up to my video card). This is what I'm planning to get, although it'll probably change in a month.

    Pentium 2.4 ghz with a nice intel mobo (non-integrated, with a nice sound card included).
    512 DDR ram
    80GB HD
    The monitor I'm using right now (it doesn't matter that much anyways, does it?)

    Maybe now UT2K3 will be a little more fun for me... although I still probably won't be able to play much until the end of summer since I just got a job.
    The only constant is change.
    (And I wouldn't have it any other way.)

                      1gig DDR 333 RAM
                      120gig WD 8mb Cache
                      250gig WD 8mb Cache

                              Actually, no. Lots of TV shows and .shn files.

                              I have the entire run of Red Dwarf, Star Trek Voyager, Star Trek Deep Space 9, and Scrubs. I also have somewhere around 80gig's of live concerts in .shn format. That's what takes up all that space.
