    nice box, could use a better video card though. ive used a 128mb geforce fx 5200 on my friends box 1.8ghz celeron box with 640mb memory. and it runs pretty slow. I put a 256mb geforce fx 5200 on my other friends p4 2.6ghz with 512mb ddr and it runs a little faster on his box. but If i could go back i would at least put a 5700 in it.

    All up and around it was a little over a grand. Yeah, I was gonna go with the higher end vid cards, but as Im on travel so much it would be wasted on my wife and daughter. I dont play many FPS's anymore, mostly strategy games, wont matter much.

    Nice! Right now I'm toiling away on a Cyrix MII-333pr. Not nice. Not funny. Can't wait until my stuff gets here and I can hook up my other computer. Nerdvana!

    I'm not certain, though, if I believe the part about your wife being okay with it. Has she suffered from any bouts of falling down and hitting her head? j/k.

    Cheers

    I'm desperately in need of something new. I'm still trucking along on my little 1 GHz Athlon (it WAS an 800 MHz until the motherboard caught on fire...and still worked, unfortunately). Sad thing is I'll probably go with something comparable just so I can get a laptop. You can grab a 1GHz laptop with wifi for a little less than a grand nowadays, and me and my student budget like the sound of that. Sure, just about every component in it is laughable, but so long as it has wifi and runs linux I'll be a happy man.
