New computer

I’m excited because I just ordered parts for the new computer! (Here’s why.)

  • Shuttle SN68SG2 (NVIDIA GeForce 7025 Chipset, AMD Athlon 64) barebones system[1. I’ll just use the on-board video, audio and ethernet port. I’m not a hi-fi gamer or audiophile.]
  • AMD Athlon X2 4600 2.4 GHz processor
  • Kingston Value RAM DDR2-800 CL6 SDRAM (KVR800D2N6/2G) — 4GB (2 x 2GB)
  • Seagate 250GB ST3250410AS SATA2 16MB (cache) 7200RPM hard drive

My current NEC AD-7170A DVD burner will be carried over because it still gets the job done — but I’m not buying a floppy disk drive. *gasp!*

I’ll be driving to will-call at Mwave tomorrow, putting it all together, and everything else that you need to do for a clean Windows install.

Lightroom will be much faster than my current setup, so I’m really stoked for that.

I guess my money won’t go towards paying off debt, buying new tires, getting a tune up, a new lens, more memory for my camera… *trails off*
