A Little Power Boost
I finally upgraded my 2 year old computer. Basically I just swapped out the motherboard, cpu and memory. Inspite of the influence from the Intel camp (you know who you are), I went with AMD ... again. (The 2.4Ghz P4 did look *very* nice). Anyways, its an Athlon XP 2500+, with 512MB of PC2700 memory. All things considered, it doesn't feel much faster. Although I really haven't used it much. So now my brother gets the 1133Mhz chip. Also I can put the old motherboard into the BlackBox with his 850Mhz chip replacing the old P3 500Mhz. I'm trying to dump my SB Live! card and use the uber-powerful onboard sound but its a little trippy in Linux. Yeah, I'm a hardware geek. Oh well, back to more important things.
