Yes, yes! A New System!

Earlier today I ordered replacement parts for my blown motherboard and CPU. Although they aren’t exactly modern anymore, they’re a real improvement over this C7 I’ve had to use as a temporary replacement or the old Socket 939 Athlon 64 3000+. The CPU of course is an AMD Athlon X2 4050e, which I feel was an absolute steal at $35 (with free shipping). The motherboard is an ECS (you might have heard horror stories about ’em but my last motherboard was a PCChips, which is owned by ECS) with GeForce 6100 integrated graphics and features a PCI-E x16 and x1 slot, with 2 PCI slots. Hopefully this machine wull last a few years, as there future capable upgrades (ala Phenom II x4).
