Well, it’s done. Almost.
I upgraded my computer. I now run a:
- Pentium 3, 3.4 Ghz
- 2 GB Hynix DRAM (will add another 2GB to upgrade to 4 GB shortly)
- WD 120 GB Primary Hard Drive (With a Future Shop 3 Year Product Service Plan)
- WD 80 GB Secondary Hard Drive (With a Future Shop 3 Year Product Service Plan)
- Sony Dual Layer 16x DVD-RW (With a Future Shop 3 Year Product Service Plan)
As combined with stuff I already had…
I was also able to find a memory card reader at London Drugs that fits into a 3.5″ external floppy drive bay, so I don’t have to plug an external reader into the machine and waste precious table top space.
And to top it off, Mom did want a new monitor that she can actually see on, so I upgraded from a Samsung SyncMaster 700NF to a Samsung SyncMaster 213T (With a Future Shop 5 Year Product Service Plan), which got solid reviews on epinions.com.
I purchased the motherboard, processor and RAM from the good folks at Powersonic. I purchased the Case and the Power Supply from NCIX and I purchased the Hard Drives, the DVD-Burner and Monitor from Future Shop.
Now it’s time to finish installing all the software updates.
