Default Father's Day Gift: New Computer!

My wife got a tax refund, and used it to buy me a new computer for Father's Day!

I got a Velocity Desk Top from Memory Express:

Intel i5-2400 with 8 GB of ram!

After 6 years with a Sempron 1.6 mhz and 1 GB of ram, I am in shock.

I never dreamed I would ever have such a computer!!!

Congrats. If your system specs are correct you need a new monitor to clean up your picture and you will be good to go.
