marvinmatthew;3325248Nice. I'm glad you got the new system.

Well, it's marketed as 320GB...

But when you open up it's properties under "my computer", it says it has a capcity of 292GB.

But with the OS and all the other junk they install[like McAfee], not to mention the 2 or 3 programs I've already installed[such as #develop, Notepad++, UT2k4, Firefox, and Battle for Middle-earth, it comes out to about 274GB.

Not that I'm complaining ;)

I think the only upgrades it needs are:

Video Card w/Power supply w/fan

And another HD sometime in the future...don't need it right now.

That Western Digital 500GB HD for $180 on NewEgg looks nice...:naughty:

[But, like I said, all that can wait.]

I LOVE the look of Media Center Edition though; the blue glass thing.

XP Pro on my other machine has the same sort of style; but not that particular crispness.

It came with a wireless keyboard, mouse, and speakers[which weren't wireless ;)]
