    So, a few weeks ago my son asks me "Dad, the next time you build a computer, I want to help.." HEY NOW!!! When the child said that , Mom couldn’t say a thing!!!

    So, my new rig is coming (in pieces).. to replace the 3 year old Athlon XP 1700+ is…………………

    ThermalTake Tsunami Case (VA3000BWA)
    1 GB Dual Channel Mushkin PC3200 RAM
    LeadTek WinFast PX6600 GT TDH Video Card (PCI-e)
    MSI K8N NEO4 Platinum Motherboard
    AMD Athlon64 3200+ (Winchester core)
    Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS
    120 GB Maxtor SATA HDD
    80 GB Seagate ATA HDD
    Plextor Dual Layer DVDRW
    AGPB/Athena Power 500 W ATX 2.0 PS

    Is this too much power for Word Processing???? :lol: :mrgreen: :shock:

    That’s great news Carl, I must confess a few years ago my husband did the same. He wanted a new computer but I was letting him know it just wasn’t something I thought we could afford at the time. He came to me and said "if I can’t buy one I will just build one out of whatever parts I can find. "I can use my old keyboard." Wow, I thought, how cleaver is this guy. He is going to build us a computer. Well, it turns out, he wasn’t searching at the local flea markets and yard sales for spare parts. He had no trouble "finding" the parts, at a computer supply house. We ended up with a much faster computer so I forgave him.

    That’s quite a machine! 8)

    I’ve been considering a similar upgrade, but I think I’m going to hold off for the typical 2nd quarter price drop… especially for memory, which is pretty high right now.

    137 for a gig of Mushkin doesn’t seem bad..
