New computer

So finally I got around to building myself a new computer... very exciting for me. I'm going from a laptop (which I bought 3+ years ago when I didn't know anything about computers) to this:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ (2.2 GHz)
250 GB hard drive
Radeon X800 256MB

I doubt I really need those specs at this point... but I was trying to plan ahead, since I know I won't be upgrading for a while.

And now I have a DVD burner, among other fun stuff (I had to buy an LCD monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers for the thing as well). It's so cool. And by some miracle, it fits on my desk. Well, the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers do. I was never going to try to get the computer itself on my desk. The computer case has found a calling as a "desk" for my laptop as well. Handy when I'm transferring files between the two. Now all I need is a printer.

I can finally play all the games I wanted to... like Guild Wars. I've had that since July and couldn't really do a whole lot with it. Now when I play it looks so nice! The first time I logged on with the new computer I thought I was going to cry. So pretty! And fast! I'll probably got back and try to play Morrowind again too, since that one always used to randomly crash out while I was playing. So yeah, Carolyn... Guild Wars when you get back. :-)
