Had a friend loose everything to a lightening strick to his underground sprinkling system (even the monitor). He had a warrenty on his power supply that covered the deductable on his home owners. He went from a P2 300 with 32MB SDRAM and a 17" monitor and was able to upgrade to a PIII 550 with 128MB SDRAM, TNT2 ultra, and 19" monitor from Gateway. Of corse that was 2 years ago and the fan on the CPU is screaming but he refuses to take the time to fix it. If any of you know much about the older PIII with 512K L2 cache (Slot1). They were still at .25 micron and topped out at about 600mhz. They ran very hot. His wife uses the computer for work, but they still don't fix it. I could here it 2 rooms away when I went to his house 3 months ago. Oh well.
The COMPUTER is your FRIEND!
Happiness is manditory.
