    Just assembled my new rig a month ago

    Worked 3 months as a lifeguard to afford it. I'm so pleased with it. The apple cinema display is really the best LCD monitor to edit photos on.

    The shuttle sb75s is so silent and tiny. It doesn't take up alot of space in my dorm room. A radeon 9800 pro powers the graphics.

    Its only got a 74gb internal SATA 10k RPM western digital harddisk. But i have a 160gb external harddisk. Windows boots up in 5 secs and games run super fast.

    I had enough of my tiny ibook but still wanted to preserve the 'mac' look.

    Will be getting an apple keyboard in the future to complete that look.

    Default Stone Age

    My Gateway system has been running since I acquired it new in Nov 1999. Yes Gateway's vanished from this region now. Thankfully system is still running great, save for a few changes:

    PIII 500mHz
    stock 256 mb RAM (upgrd to max 384mb)
    Win 98 (upgrd to XP Pro when 98 crashed)
    20.4 gb HDD
    TDK Cyclone CD writer
    3dfx 16mb graphics card (yup 3dfx bought over by someone else now; card busted and was replaced under warranty in early 2000 I think)
    19-inch Gateway CRT
    Altec Lansing satellite/subwoofer combo (upgrd from Boston Acoustics which died)

    How's that for old?

    I do the usual housekeeping to keep it running as best as I know how.
