ah, just got done putting a new PC together.  Yeah, i know, building a pc is so yesterday.  🙂  but who cares?  I enjoy it just like some probably enjoy working on cars.  I put about $350 into it, and it’s plenty fast for what I do.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000

Biostar Motherboard

2 gig Ram

ASUS 8600 video card 256mb ram

WD 250 gig HD

Xion black case (which I’m really happy with, especially for 69 bucks)

I threw a TDK 52x cd-burner in it, loaded up win XP professional and was good to go.

Well, not exactly.  Loading XP without a floppy drive presented some…issues.  I found a program online called bootdisk, burned an image on a cd, and then that let me load it up.  No hiccups after that.
