Default x-mas in..err..February

So when I graduated highschool my Grandpa and my Grandma (in spirit) gave me 2000 for a computer for college, it was something my Grandma always wanted to give me but my parents never let them so I saved the money until now...

Nice looking PC

Upgrade to a 7200rpm drive though and keep the one that comes with it for backup.

I just did this..got a 7200 rpm drive and it tottally owns the 5400 that came stock with mine.

the 1GB stick of ram also helped a little but not nearly as much as upping the harddrive up.

Never. if I am going to leave it in the car it will be locked in the trunk.
