Well, I just did a major upgrade/overhaul on my system. Before the upgrade, my system was a PIII 550. After the upgrade: CPU: Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53 GHz Mobo: Soyo SY-K7VTA Pro RAM: 256MB (same as before) Sound Card: Soundblaster Audigy MP3+ Video Card: ATI Radeon 64MB SDR (not the 7000 -- same as before) Ethernet Card: Linksys 10/100 Ethernet card I transferred the old 30 GB HD, CD-RW, and DVD-ROM drives to the new case. This is the first computer I put together myself so I'm pretty proud of it. Everything works great! Instead of the old crappy 386K DSL connection speed my new DSL download speed is consistently between 1.0 mbps and 1.2 mbps!!
