Class and Work.

Well on tonight’s quiz I got an 88.6. not too bad, not above 90% like I would like, but it’ll do.

work today I had to swap out a motherboard on two computers, and one computer is now working better (The motherboard that wasn’t working before), while the other is not running well at all (The one that actually did work before). I’m wondering if there’s another issue going on.


My Computer

Well I’ve got my computer up and running with Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2. I’m attempting to find a 64-bit version of it, but I don’t know if I’ll find one. we’ll see… if I have to, I’ll wait until the 64-bit version comes out.



Here are the specifications of my computer:

  • Case: Chieftec Matrix Mid-tower Case, Green
  • CD-RW: Artec Green 52x24x52 EIDE
  • DVD-ROM: Artec Green 16x EIDE
  • Hard Drive: Seagate 200GB Serial ATA 1.5GBps
  • Floppy Drive: Teac Green 1.44MB 3.5″ Floppy Drive
  • Keyboard: Aspire Multimedia Keyboard Green
  • Mouse: Aspire Optical Mouse Green
  • Motherboard: DFI Lanparty Nforce4 Ultra-D
  • LAN: Dual Gigabit 1000 Mbps adapters
  • Processor: AMD Athlon 64 Socket 939 3200+
  • Power Supply: Ultra X-Connect 500 W Titanium Green Limited Edition
  • Memory: 2- PNY 512MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz
  • Video Card: BFG GeForce 6200 / 256MB DDR / PCI Express / DVI / TV-Out / Video Card

My New Computer

Well, I bought all of the parts for my computer and I have the thing built, however I cannot get windows installed because it turns out that the 24-pin power supply cord for my power supply is faulty, I have to wait until they send me a new power supply cable in order to actually use my computer. I think I’m going to buy a 20-24 pin connector tomorrow in order to be able to use my computer, and then i’ll put the new cable in, once I get it. I’ll post the specs on my computer tomorrow.



Well I got my re-imbursement check from going to Washington, D.C… right now I’m planning on spending it on a computer for myself… I have a list of the parts I want, however, I’m wondering whether or not to just wait and get a laptop instead?

Ideas? Laptop or Desktop?
