Just wanted to say thanks to all of you out there who have helped me understand more about what I am doing and guiding me in the right directions this past year, especially Paul, JD, and Jeff.
I finished building my first full system from scratch and I'm loving it. And putting it together was done in only a fraction of the time it took to load my software.
Going from 512MB RAM on a 1 GHz P-3 to 4GB on a 2.7GHz AMD sure makes a big difference. Wow! I can run more than 3 things at a time now.
The only mistake I made putting it together was that I forgot to NOT connect the card reader until after Windows was installed, and so 4 card slots began lettering at C and put my HDD last. Though time consuming, it was easy to fix that. I wasn't going to leave it like that because sometimes there are programs out there that will only install to C:\filename.
Couldn't have done it without you guys. Thanks.
