We have a new PC!!

Well, after 8 glorious trying years, the old PC had finally given up the ghost! Over the years, I have replaced hard drives, video cards, RAM and even installed a Wireless Network Card not that long ago (6 mths) so as it can work with our new provider. BUT, alas, on Saturday afternoon, it finally 'spat the dummy' with it not wanting to boot up.

So, what were we to do? I went off to get another one of course, and even though it is an ALDI model (MEDION), I could not be happier!

The specs are as follows:

  • Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium
  • Phenomenal performance - Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q6600
  • Massive - 2048 MB DDR2 SDRAM
  • NVIDIA® GEFORCE® 8600 GSgraphics with HDMI connection
  • Huge 500 GB SATA hard disk
  • High Speed Wireless LAN 802.11n Draft
  • 8 Channel High Definition Audio
  • Network controller Ethernet LAN
  • Integrated USB memory card reader
  • ...and much more

So, now with access renewed upstairs, I will need to put it onto the home network, and the I have more than enough storage and speed, for the photos etc, so normal blogging will resume shortly.

Here are a couple of pics of the old beast, cabling and of course, the new beast!
