Smile Belated Introduction

Hello All,

I have already been bugging some of you for opinions and information. I would like to thank everybody who gave me some input on my build specs.

The original specs did change in the end AMD 4600+ not a 5000+ mainly through financial constraints.

But anyway I am based in the UK, work in Lab Sales travelling the country, and as good as married with a 3 year old daughter. Main interests include Football(Soccer) Arsenal in particular, Family, Skiing, Alcohol and Computers (in no particular order) I have been into computers since my ZX Spectrum Plus (not the rubber keyed version)

I actually saw someone driving a sinclair C5 on my way home from the office on Tuesday!!!! The bloke looked F***ing Ridiculous and was probably s****ing himself into the bargin.

Then progressing onto Atari ST and Finally my first PC a Gateway 386 SX which i thought was kickass at the time, then everything else has been work junk various laptops to current fujitsu POS... until now with my own build.

So thats a little bit about me anyway. I would just like to add that I hope to be able to return the some of the help given to me in time.

Thanks again
