Default I think it's good...

I finally traded off that system I was holding onto for a lappy.

Athlon 64 3K Venice
Abit AN8-SLI Deluxe mobo
2GB (4x215MB) Corsair valueram
PCIE Geforce 6600
80GB WD
200GB Maxtor
HP DVD Burner
CD ROM
Black mesh case
Windows XP Pro


I traded for:
Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop
http://www.notebook-laptop-review.co...op-review.html

The only things different from the base model...
2x256MB ram (I will upgrade)
and the geforce go 5200

but I think it's a sweet deal for what I need? Yea, I know... I'm not really asking anything, just wanted to tell someone!

Well, you have another, better performing desktop, so I guess it's good.
Also, 4x215mb??? You mean 512mb? :P DYSLEXIA!

Defenitely upgrade the memory on the laptop to 1GB. It will need it.

Shows how much laptops cost when you have to trade your beautiful system in for a medium-end laptop!

ya'know though... I don't think it's that bad... I think the desktop wasn't worth it truthfully... I think that is the worst one I have.... even my kid has a 3200 with a 6800GT and 2GB ram. (I upgraded)

So yea, I am going ot upgrade it to at least 1GB... but if can find it cheap enough I'll go for 2. The REALLY bad part... I put that machine together for less than 500USD, and the guy I traded it with paid almost 1500 for this thing (new) a year ago... so yea (again) your right talldude, it's a midrange, but I like it (plus It's my first lappy)
Wife has a Toshiba, but I do not mess with it... (I like my nuts, NOT to be in a sling! LMAO)
