My new computer

is almost fully loaded.

  • Oh, it's running just fine, but I haven't had the time to finish loading all the software that I use, and it's still on the road to an upgrade to Windows 7 in the near future.  It's pretty darned nice, though.

    4GB of RAM (DDR3 stuff at that), a Western Digital 1TB HDD, AMD Athlon II X4 (quad core) CPU, Biostar AM3 MB, a nice 24-bit SoundBlaster card, an old (extra) gForce video card, and a fun case with a nice orange accent.

    I have more room on this machine than we had on all the other drives in the house combined - it's amazing how drives have grown over the years.  The first machine I used with a hard drive had a massive 5MB drive.  This one has a 1TB drive, that's 200,000 of those huge 5MB jobs packed into a space that's actually smaller than the old 5.25" Winchesters.

    Pretty cool.  It will keep my techno-lust at bay for a while.
