    my amd 1800+ has had its hayday... time to upgrade. :)

    found a good deal on honda-tech that i couldn't pass up.


    Coolermaster Case
    500W X-Connect Power Supply
    Soyo Dragon Ultra Black Label Motherboard
    AMD 2800+ 64
    1.5GB PC3200 Ram (Crucial)
    PNY Geforce 6800GT 256MB
    200GB Sata Hard Drive
    80GB IDE Hard Drive
    16X Dual Layer DVD Writer (NEC)
    52X Cd/RW (Lite-on)
    2 Network Cards
    56K Modem
    Floppy
    MS Silver/Black Keyboard
    MS Silver/Black Optical 5 button Mouse

    also picked up a daul 17" monitor setup with it.
    2 17" CTX LCD Monitors

    all for 1200 bucks shipped :)

    the monitors alone are 500 bucks for the pair, so i think i got a pretty good deal.

    he's leaving win2k on there, office2k3, photoshopCs, etc etc... and some mp3's and dvd rips that he had on there. hehe :)

    so, yeah, thats what i got.

    i'll probably be selling my current system if anyone is interested-- maybe part it out. i dunno.

    yeah, i don't know if im ready to run linux just yet.... maybe i'll keep my old system and fuck around with it some...


    and as for those of you are are going to say damn y0 where do you get this money from...

    to make a long story short, i returned my dell 42" plasma tv. it broke on me a 2nd time. dell asid they would send me another, but that would be it, and my warranty would be null and void. i basically told them to go fuck themseleves and to take the POS back.

    so, don't buy a dell tv if you plan to use the HDMI channel. there's keeps frying on me, and kills the remote functionality, sleep timer, and of course, the hdmi chaneel is fubar. twice, two different tv's.

    so, im getting 3k back from that. 1200 goes to this.

    and im back to my 20" pos goldstar from 1985. lol

    i think im going to score a DLP lcd for like 1500 or something... i dunno... thats later on. they havne't picked up the dell yet, nor called to make the appointment, so i will still have something for a little bit longer.
