New PC on the way!!!
« on: January 12, 2005, 08:27:24 PM »

Well, my work computer is fried.  I can't get online and programs are failing all over the place.  Since it was purchased in 2000 and it's a relic (550 MHz P3 with 192 MB of RAM), I've decided to pull the trigger on a new machine.

I'll be taking my good computer from home and I'm gonna use it at the office, and use the brand new one at home.

I'm getting it from Dell, here are the specs:

3.2 GHz P4 processor with HT technology and 1 MB cache
1GB DDR2 SDRAM at 400MHz
80GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)
128MB PCI Express x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) ATI Radeon X300 SE graphics card
17 in (17 in viewable) E173FPBFlat Panel Display
5.1 sound card
16x dual layer, dual format DVD +/- RW
16x DVD-ROM

Swweeeet.   Should be here in a few days. 8)

Does this mean you will check your e-mail more frequently and turn AIM or Trillian on once in a while?

Congrats on the sweet pickup!

I'm hooked up and ready to go.   I bought Half-Life 2 and I just got done playing a bit of it and all I can say is WOW.  :o  If this is what next gen consoles are going to look like, then we're in for a treat.

We'll have to get some deathmatch action happening!  I finally got Halflife 2 installed on Sunday.  It does look incredible!

Next gen consoles should be capable of a lot more than HL2 :)
