    Thanks a lot man, I was thinking. "Man this computer is going to be nice, get me a monitor and throw away my old crt monitor and tv..." "nice new quad processor, a real upgrade from my (now fried by lightning) AMD anthlon X2 3800 @ 2.7GHz..." Then the thought popped in. "new processor... a new socket?.... ah ****. Please don't tell me imma have to spend another 50 bucks on a heatsink... I love my ultra 120...."

    so thanks again man. ^_^

    Just wanted say thanks guys. I love this system. It runs good, Haven't had too many problems. Every time I try to start up Everest (I love/miss that program) mycomputer locks up and automatically restarts. But, I am still using XP until next semester than I'm going to upgrade.
