New Computer Time For Margaret

No more "hand-me-down" computers for Maggie!! It's even more way over due, but I have finally replaced the monster tower Windows 98Se box,  that Margaret had, with a very quiet, incredibly fast new computer. Built around an AMD Athlon XP 2600+, Asus A7N8X2.0 REV 2.xx motherboard, and Antec's good looking, quiet and solidly built Sonata Case, this has been an interesting project. The Seagate Serial ATA hard drive is fast and quiet. Even the TDK DVD +-R/RW  is quiet. I had enough problems in recent years to swear I would never build another PC, but the quality of some of the major PC builders (HP, Gateway, and Dell primarily) tech support lead me back to where I started eight years ago - build the damn things myself. This is a near clone of mine.

Black case, black keyboard, black mouse, and a black LCD flat panel. Just beige Altec Lansing speakers.
