Hi and Merry Christmas,
I'm brand new to this site. I've been computing for many years now (first box was a 486 way back in the early '90s). I've built my own stuff for a while now but don't know much of anything about these damn malicious infections going around and hope to get some help with that here but I'll save that for the appropriate forum. I don't compute for a living but have to use one at work and very much enjoy flight simulations on my home system. I work for the Boeing Co. here in Seattle and build those airliners you all like to jump on for your vacations and holidays.
I'm presently running a 3gig Intel Duo Core chip on a EVGA nforce 750i M board on Win. XP. I'm still using an ASUS EN8800 GTX graphics card. Will probably have to udate that soon or get another one to run in series. Just bought 8 gigs of brand new RAM to go on MS-7 (think I'll try it in 64 bit). Would have bought that by now but I had 3 Grand kids to Christmas shop for first. Never did get Vista, just heard too many horror stories about it but everyone I've talked to likes MS-7.
I'm hoping to get a couple more years out of this system before they see to it that PCI Express goes obsolete and then it's time to start all over. Cars were bad enough but the computing industry has raised planned obsolesance to a high art.
