I ordered some parts to upgrade my PC in anticipation for the upcoming FPS fiesta that is the release of DOOM3 (and hopefully the release of Half-Life 2 as well). I will now have a 3.0Ghz P4 with 1GB of RAM. For the time being, I will continue to use my GeForce 4 Ti4600 that I have in the PC, because with the imminent release of these huge games I feel that video cards are still at gouge prices. After some time passes I will score a ATi Radeon X800. I knew I had to upgrade my machine, and this was a pretty cheap way of doing it. The disadvantage: I hate building machines… It never goes smoothly.

Anyway, my current PC is in NJ, and I will be building it out there while I am home for and Tom’s wedding. I will also be taking the leftover parts from my upgrade and building out a machine for Larissa.

  1. Thank you!

    Thank you so much, I can’t stand that computer anymore. I hope that all goes well with your trip down here, let me know if you need any money to help put the computer in working order.

    1. Re: Thank you!

      No problem… Thanks to my upgrade, you went from getting a free Dual Pentium II 350Mhz to a free Dual Pentium III 1.0Ghz. I am probably just opening up myself to get made fun of, as you probably don’t know/care about the difference, but put it this way: the PII computer would have been like 5-6 times faster than what you have now. The PIII computer will be 20-24 times faster, or so…

  2. Cool

    You were correct in your assumption that I have no idea what that means, but thanks for explaining it. I would be happy with a computer that did not have the image of naked Pamela Anderson permanently fixed on it. I am hoping that this computer will allow me to have my own desktop, so I don’t have to look at her anymore. I think I could do it on the current computer, but I think it is so loaded with viruses, it has become incapable of doing anything except downloading music, and the occasional browse of the internet.
