Say goodbye to all those wonderful "Is the round over? I just got in!!" moments!

Hope you didn't let him choose the address too, or the computer might be taking a detour through TX...

And wow memory has really come down in price.

Just to clear the record, I had no hand in Moonfleck's getting 2 video cards. The original build I sent only had 1 video card. This was purely Moonfleck's decision. Okay granted I tried to lobby for 8 video cards afterwards...but I had no hand in the initial decision.

I've heard in some cases it is better to get two good gfx cards instead of one uber card.

Woot! Enjoy the new PC :)

Wow, sweet specs. Will you be upgrading your monitor too, or just keep your existing one?

Or perhaps the bigger question... Vista or XP? :P

moonfleck said...

think i will just keep the old monitor. Its nice 19"

VIsta or XP is a bigger question indeed. I can't quite decide but leaning towards XP I guess since I am attracted to bugfreeness

XP all the way!
