    Just received my new Dell Dimension 8200 2.0GHz with 19' Trinitron monitor, 512 MB RDRAM, 64 MB NVIDIA GeForce 3 graphics card with DVI, etc. and wanted to first post here because I'll be spending a lot more time with you tech people to learn. I also want to say I have the best wife in the world because she let me get this after spending 8-9 grand upgrading my bedroom home theater. I'm sure it beats my old 233MMX, but solitaire just seems somehow the same.

    Congratulations. Nothing beats that new PC feeling. Well, maybe the new TV feeling.

    If you get Windows XP, try Spider Solitaire. I play it so often, I've been thinking about adding my high score to my resume.

    Greg: Curse you for mentioning spider solitare! Never gave it a second glance, tried it, and lost an hour of my life... with no signs of it coming back [​IMG]
    Oh, and Dana, congrats on getting the new machine [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. Now that spider solitaire scares me. I'm already addicted to regular solitaire. Well, I guess I need a change. Marshall, I'll look into SETI and consider it. I have heard of it before.

    DanaA,

    With that GeFORCE3 card you need to get you a copy of Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and join me out on the battle field.
