Hello World!

…says my new computer.  I’m very excited about it.  I’ve never even had my very own desktop before, and now, thanks to help, I got to build one myself.  I got a pink case:

…which I think is awesome.  It has an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 processor, a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 motherboard, 4x1GB Corsair DDR2 800 memory, a GeForce 8500 GT 512MB graphics card, a Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB hard drive (as well as a Transcend 160GB external hard drive), an Antec TruePower 550W power supply, and a Lite-On 22x DVD burner.  All but the burner, hard drives, and case (obviously) are hand-me-downs from Erik.  However, to me this is still a kick-ass setup – much better than the laptop I’ve been using for the last four years.

Building it was a lot of fun; he supervised, and helped with a few things.  But I really did much of it myself, and I have the cut to prove it:

The computer runs 64 bit Vista, which I am enjoying.  I finally have a graphics card that can handle gaming!  It’s also nice to have more than the 80G of storage space that my laptop was limited to.  All in all, I am very pleased with my new computer.  Thanks hun!  🙂
