2 GB DDR-400 SDRAM
2x 250GB SATA HDDs
nVidia GeForce 6800 DDL Ultra 256MB GDDR3 VRAM, the best gaming video card the world has seen.
And, get this:
30" (29.7" viewable) 2560x1600 TFT Cinema HD Flat Panel Display.

and he reckons it is ok.

I started with a II+ then //e and then unfortunately had to go ibm for work. Now I'm retired & can't afford an Apple.

First II+ cost me nearly $A4000 back in 1981 0r early 82 can't remember now :oops:

I told him that as soon as the newness is off it and he's installed XPlane (a flight sim), I'd show how to fly the sucker.

He's also looking out for a force feedback chair.

And he's retired & single (not a throw away)!!!

Oh yeah.... Damp..... your connection is slow because of a few things.... one: when was the last time you did a defrag? Two: you need to erase ALL cookies and everything in you 'TEMP' folders. three: you either have a virus or spyware OR something messed up your registry. I STRONGLY recommend using something called Registry Mechanic and Spybot AND an antivirus.

Thanks a ton, folks! :D Sush, I did what you recommended and things are a bit speedier although for some reason I'm still having a hard time getting on this site in particular. I'll keep working on it though. Stupid computers. :roll:
