Default N00b...hi all

Hey guys (and gals?). Just got really into computer builds and figured I should join a forum to help me learn more and grow a bit. This looks like a good environment to learn in so kudos to TF :thumbup:

My name is Matt and I'm 23. I recently (yesterday) finished a build I started back in November. It was kind of a budget build, and the parts are all over the spectrum. Here are the specs:

- XFX GeForce 8200 Motherboard
- AMD Phenom X4 9550 Quad Core 2.20GHz
- XFX GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512mb
- OCZ SLI-Ready Dual Channel 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz
- Western Digital Caviar SE16 500GB
- Sony DRU-V200S/BR DVD Rewritable Drive SATA
- NZXT Tempest ATX Mid-Tower Case
- NZXT PP-600 600-Watt PSU

I'm already looking forward to upgrading and learning.

(PC is currently running Windows XP SP3 32bit)

I'm currently posting from my laptop (HP dv9429us AMD Turion X2), my PC is piggybacking its internet through this because I am lacking a wireless device currently...

FWIW, my moniter is a Samsung LN19B360 - 19" LCD TV. And I have some 4+ year old keyboard/mouse/speakers. (At least the TV is nice right?) :laughing:
