Mine is due for an upgrade soon, I have 640Mb ram already and 2 hard drives ( 20 for os and programs and a 40 for storage). But I am still running a PIII 800 mhz. I may just get a new board with a new processor. But with all my other projects on the go $$$$ is pretty tight.

Still have to get teh bonne on the road, working on Project LL69 ( lower, louder 69) It'* a 1969 GMC pickup, still paying off school and the new car ( 2003 malibu) then get another house, ( since we moved back to our home town/city).


There has to be a better faster way to get things going, that don't include her on the corner or anything I would do time for, LMAO.

oo, Emachines. It'll probably serve you well, but they don't have very good reliability records... and to add insult to injury, some of the parts in them are proprietary, meaning you can't just buy any old replacement thing and put it in. Power supplies are known to be bad on these buddies... watch it.
