A few weeks ago I acquired myself a Semi-new computer. This is MY first GOOD computer that I ever had so I’m kinda excited about it. The best part about it is that it was completely Free! This computer was originally my brothers computer that he built for himself, but, for my birthday he decided to give it to me. I guess because he bought himself a new laptop and he didn’t need a desktop.
The computer has a AMD Athlon 64 3000+ CPU (a bit lower then what I would get, but its fine), 1 GB of professional gaming memory (1 stick (512MB) I sent off back to the factory because it had memory errors), a shinny OCZ 520 watt power supply, MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum Motherboard, ATI All-In-Wonder 9600XT, 2 160 GB hardrives, and other stuff.
At first I installed XP and then decided, “what the hell, I have been using XP since it came out.” so I formated the hard drive and installed Vista Ultimate 😉 . So I have came to the conclusion that vista is better then XP. Except for one thing. Vista does NOT support the ATI All-In-Wonder TV and FM tune (or vice versa). That kinda pissed me off because I liked those features. Now all I can do is wait and see if ATI is going to update the software or drivers or whatever the hell they need to do.
Anyways, the computer is still great, and all I need to do now is buy myself a monitor. Its going to be a 19 inch LCD one. About $200.
