    My old one was starting to give. I still have it as my server, but thats it. I'm on my new computer now, and this is the first post from it :)

    I picked it up at staples for $900.

    It came with a 22' flat wide screen.
    Dual Pentium 2.5ghz processors
    6GB of DDR2 RAM
    500 GB SATA Hardrive
    DVDR/CDRW drive
    and an ATI Radeon 2400 Pro 256mb video card.

    It runs like a dream and I love it!!!! It really puts into perspective how slow my old computer really was. I guess I was just used to it.

    Very nice. That's a nice setup right there. So what programs and things have you done so far that you've noticed are much faster now?

    For me when I upgraded my RAM and CPU I noticed I could do more stuff at once, more internet tabs, a ton of programs like IM, iTunes, etc all at once with no issues at all.

    Nothing really challenging yet. I ordered Starcraft 2 back in December. So when it comes out, that'll be the test.

    I loaded Sim City 4... and its screaming fast so far. Not a hiccup.

    Other then that I've really only tweaked the settings, got Firefox, AIM, Spybot and turned a bunch of other pre-installed crap off.
