Last year i was using a 166 when I could have been using a p4

Because when im trying to type something up, the computer that noone touches doesnt have spyware.

Well about 2years ago I payed £1200 or so for:

Advert P4 2.66 (Which I have now )
15" CRT monitor
80GB HardDrive (Which I still have now)
GeForce 4 MX (Cheap Version)
512 RAM
Soundcard was build't in the mobo
No Cooling or anything
Some crappy keyboard & Speakers

Hey and guess where I bought it from PCWorld (Never buy pre-buildt stuff from there)

I have now come to relise that for £1200 I could have made twice as better machine for the money.
