It's FINALLY running!!

After several mishaps and newegg.com miscommunications and general bad luck- I have FINALLY got my newest upgrade PC up/running ^*^ :drool:

The PC "USED" to be an Emachines S2482, but sorta kinda blew up (At least the PSU did) and with the cost of newer technology coming down, I decided to reverse retrograde the old chassis with new tech.... :uhhh

Went looking for a mini-atx MOBO; found an A740GM2+ that fit nicely, dropped in the CPU this afternoon(After much hassle with newegg....), also have 8GB DDR2-1066 RAM, a couple of SATA HDDs, and the granddaddy..... a 9800GTX PCIe video card running at a whopping (Almost) 750Mhz core speed, along with the 512MB DDR3 and a FRESH install of Vista Ult.x64................... you can see why I'm sitting slightly uncomfortably in my chair, even as I type now......... :whistle :embarrassed: :oops:

Next step is to get COD4 installed on this behemoth and go out and get owned............. :lol:

Those mini-atx MB's sure are nice to work with fitting into a tight case.

I put one in a old box where a P3 @ 800MHz use to be, huge difference.

Congrats on your new rig, enjoy ^*^
