My New PC

I'm now officially using my new PC, at last (thank God). And, man, what a difference! However, I'm also convinced that AMD's new 64-bit processors are a lot better and more stable. Sounds like it is true, Intel is scared of AMD.

Here is what I'm on right now:

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.00 GHz 630 (2MB cache) LGA (Hyper-Threading)
Memory: SpecTek 512 MB DDRAM2 533
Motherboard: Gigabyte 945G (Built-In: Intel GMA 950 "128 MB", Realteck ALC 882 CODEC for sound "8 audio channels", Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet)
HDD: 2 x Western Digital Caviar 80 GB
CD-ROM: Asus 52x
CD-R/RW: Sony CRX230E10 52x/32x/52x
Monitor: BenQ FP71E 17" LCD

I guess there's only one final touch left. Namely, getting rid of Windows. I really want to try Solaris 10. However, after two unsuccessful attempts to install the OS, if the third attempt failed, I think I'll settle down for Ubuntu Linux. Either way, I guess I'll have to dual boot because my brother can't just let "Need for Speed Underground 2" go. :)
