My latest sojourn has been into the world of home video and getting it burned onto DVDs. I'm not very computer literate, though I did learn a lot a few years ago upgrading an old, basic desktop. New motherboard (a whole weekend's challenge), then hard drive, memory, cpu, pci cards, etc etc. Had it pretty decent for home use. Then came the video to DVD scene. Found out my trusty old 850 coppermine and 133 mobo just weren't going to cut it. So, back to researching the latest tech. Wanted something I could use my drives and pci cards in, yet needed a significant speed increase. Ended up with an Asus P4C800-E Del, a P4 2.8 x 800 FSB Northwood cpu, and 1 g of Samsung dual channel ram per the compatibility list. So all my existing stuff will work, but now I've got 1000 ethernet, USB 2.0, and something that ought to breeze thru the video thing with my new Nero software. Even found a rather avante garde case with see thru side, fancy colored fans, bubble lights (and I'm 58!!) and a temp readout display! That simple little video project turned into a major operation! But it's fun! I'll probly be posting questions - and likely some basic ones - because I'm only fairly computer literate on a couple applications that I frequently use at work. Glad I found this "spot"!
