Default Old Man....New Toys :-)

Well....it finally came, and i just got it registered and installed!



Now it is time to enjoy my new games that I have won off e-bay!



Thank to all that helped me decide on my video card....I had been deciding for like 3 months....lol.

I have only played UT 3 so far, and there was no problems with that game.

Hopefully this will be a great step up from my X1900XTX

Thanks again.

It will be a pretty nice upgrade but not anything incredibly revolutionary.

I was born in the 80's but still remember playing atari. Like asteroids. The ship doesn't move it just spins in circles shooting rocks. The good ol' days.
