After the bills were paid, I figured it was time for a belated present to myself. My current computer is a six year old model and although I’ve updated it with lots of hard drive space and memory, there are some obvious problems.
So, on Friday, I ordered parts to build myself a new system. The dude in brown is supposed to deliver the boxes today!
Now, I can tell from the ways your eyes are glazing over, that the rest of this may not be your cup of tea. But just for the rest of the geeks in the crowd, this is what my new system is going to look like:
- AMD 64bit Dual Core CPU 2.1Ghz
- 2Gb of RAM
- 500watt power supply
- 500Gb SATA hard drive
- 500Gb IDE hard drive
It will be running Kubuntu Linux 7.10 with my usual suite of open source applications.
