My computer was on its last breath. It had been a hand me down from Eric when he had upgraded his. It was years out of date. I use a computer for so many different aspects of my life. I needed a new computer.
So....it was my birthday! ;)
A trip to Dartmouth to see Eric for a few days(while also seeing my sister and her family so it was a win/win situation for me in all ways!) Eric bought me a new computer.
To start we picked out a laptop but took it back within 48 hours once we really looked at things.It really wasn't what I needed. He opted to get all the pieces and build me a system from scratch.
*INTEL Core 2 Duo E4600 2.4GHz FSB 800MHz 2MB LGA775 Dual Core
*ASUS PSK-SE P35 ATX 3PCI/2PCI-EX 4 DDR2-10066MHZ,1PCI-E16X,SATA,LAN, eSATA
*Super*Talent T8UX2GC5 DDR2-800 2GB(2x1GB)CLS5 S-RIGID
*Sapphire ATI Radeon HD3450 512MB DVI/VGA PCI-E Video card
*WD Caviar SE-16/SATA-ll 2500KS 250GB 7200RPM,16MB,SATA-ll
*LG GSAH55N Black DVD+RW(20X+)Dual layer OEM w/software
*NIKAO 1285B(Black) Mid-tower case with front USB2.O/Audio ports 450 P.S.
*LOGITECH Cordless Desktop EX110(Keyboard &Mouse)
Which I am sure means something to those of you that are computer geeks cause it all made Eric's eye glaze over.....but to me just means I ended up with a computer that is wicked awesome again!
And the price was good enough that I also managed to get a new computer desk/hutch as well. I was beyond spoiled for my birthday! heehee
