I'm pretty happy with my setup. I could use more storage. 80 gigs just doesn't last as long as you would think.

Also a DVD burner would be nice, but the speeds are too slow.

Default machine

I just upgraded the core of my system and am still waiting for some parts but here is a list of what I bought

Intel 2.8 GHz HT 800 MHz FSB
1 G PC3200 DDR 400 SDRAM
Intel 865PERL Mother Board
Seagate Barracuda 80GB SATA HDD

Since I bought an ATI9600 PRO a few months back, I didn't upgrade that

All for 800$ Cdn

This system is going to rock compare to what I used to have

Athlon 750 MHz
MSI K7 Ultra
256 M RAM PC133
15 GB HDD Generic
