Default Came, saw, joined!

Hi everyone!

I've been reading this forum for some time and liked it so much that I've decided to join, allthough English is not my native language. I come from Poland, my interests are: computers, sport, science, chess. I do a little of programming (primarily C, C++) and I like learning new programming languages but don't have enough patience to stay with them. I have tried so far: awk, perl, lisp, scheme, prolog and a couple of others.

I'm primarily a Linux user, but run also XP. Planning to build my first computer, for my current system is so old that I think that hardly anybody in the world is still using something like that. (ten year old Pentium 166MMX )

Nice to meet you all, thanks.

lol, I can still browse the web with it but it's a hard time.
I guess I could apply for a Guinness Record for my patience
But imagine what my experience will be when I upgrade!

Thanks for the welcome!

Great to have you with us, jantar. We'll definitely help you put together a new rig. Try not to let the natives push you into a major gaming rig (unless you want one). Most tend to be very performance minded.

Oh, and welcome to Tech-Forums.

Ok, I will make a thread on the new build soon.
I'm not a gamer but I want it to be a pretty fast machine.

Keep in mind the high standards of most people here on tech-forums, like Trotter said. When they say a part is "good", they usually mean it is the BEST or close. When they say something is "bad", its probably average for oem builds.
