Cool LabRat, but I wouldn't have thought you needed runway lights to find your keyboard. LOL!
You muppet! don't you know anything? It is so I can find my tinfoil hat when the aliens come a looking for their flying saucer's supercomputer.

 

With the grunt that beast has, I am gonna have to install a HAL eyeball.

Still, I bet voice recognition is still going to suck.

Computer. Computer?
Hello, Computer.
Just use the keyboard.
Keyboard. How quaint.

Nice, but mines still better. :D (Custom built, so spec is 1337.) Btw, buy more RAM, if your getting Vista on it, you'll want +4GB of the stuff.

It comes OSless, I have already claimed it as a very potential ubuntu PC :)

 

I know at some point Windows will creep on there, but I reckon it will be XP Pro rather than Vista.

Pah that only looks good from the front. A pr0 1337 ha><><0r computer has to have the sides off to allow ready access to the internals and to allow optimum air cooling for your overclocked 384MB of triple corsair II RAM.

 

Plus everyone knows a real hacker's desk ain't that tidy.

My new PC arrived, and I have to say I am very impressed with the build quality - all the wires were neatly routed and the speed is phenomenal :confused:

 

It looks and feels so nice I may have to clean my desk :o

That is indeed a nice spec pc, although quoting a clock speed of 13.44 GHZ is slightly misleading given the actual rated speed of the cpu being 2.4ghz.

 

Nevertheless i was bowled over by the price, looks like you scored yourself a bargain, well done.

 

And yes, the HAL eyeball is a must!

I'll have to agree with Superman. 4GB+ would be very useful, especially if it'll be running Vista.

One more reason not to use vista, if it really needs 4GB to run smoothly :confused:

It dosn't 'need' it at all, I have 4GB in mine, to use if I ever needed it, I only us a max of 3GB atm, and I get 1337 speed. :fire:

:happy: Nice!

How much did that lay you back by? I could buy a duel core AMD 2.5ghz (5ghz) for 200 NZD

P.s Can we trade? :fire:

I have it dual booting Ubuntu and XP Pro, I have no desire to install Vista. I have it on very good authority that there are no plans to make EL directx10 only.

 

Edit: It cost £362 GBP (around 720 USD)

Better than running xp with 4GB if it can't even use it.

Actually the reason I haven't put the face and side back on is because this 10 year old Dell isn't worth the bother! Plus all the guts are hanging out.... I also cropped the pic so the clutter wouldn't show.... it's that shameful!!

 

Gratz on your new machine, Lab, and good luck with it! That is a good price too!! Ebay is a good source for bargains, that's for sure.

LMAO! Ohhhh, so that's what the runway lights are for. :D

 

Muppet?? Who you calling Muppet?? *pulls her shirt down in back to hide the slot for a hand* ;)

 

Well it is a cool computer for sure. Enjoy!

P.S. I loved that scene in Star Trek 4
