My computer came yesterday and not a moment too soon because my other one died Saturday. sad

It took me forever to get my screenshot program to work but after 4 hours and many bad words I found the solution on a gaming tech forum. Now I am all set to work. yay

Here is my work station. The gaming computer is on the left, the mail, internet and all other functions is on the right. Two UPS battery backups are under the desk.

Thanks again for all your help. I am hoping this one will take me through another 4 years at least. grin

Wonderful setup! I love that you have the sunset picture on the wall - I've always loved that picture. I will be curious to see what you think of all the spiffy new speedy hardware and how it handles gaming.

Too funny Winfrey. rotfl

It appears that I will be another one biting the bullet. My old pc is caput, so Drac I will be getting in touch with you again. Meanwhile I will go back and check out the spec on Ana's.

Well..............the guy didn't show up today. He had good reviews! I got in touch with another guy and he said that it was the graphics card and would run about 150/200.00 but I told him I had replaced it. He asked for model info and told me it wasn't worth fixing. I do agree, just didn't want to have to buy anything so close to Christmas. I am still curious what's wrong with it.
Gotta go, hair appointment. wave

Sharon, I hope you can get the one you want within your price range. luck

Drac, I have my favorite photos made onto canvas. That one is relaxing for me if I get stressed. I just look up and feel better.
So far, it actually seems the same as the one I had. I am sure I will notice more when I play something more graphic intensive.

Winfrey, lol Actually I put the exercise bike in front of it and ride. Just kidding! rotfl

Terri, good luck on your computer!

Hello B.E.T.
I have good news and bad news.
The good news is thats a nice setup.
The bad news is,I notice you are using the Linksys modem-router setup which is what I was using. If you have a comcast isp sooner or later you will be getting a letter telling you to upgrade your equipment to a series 3 because they are upgrading will no longer be compatable with the old series 1 equipment which those linksys boxes are. I guess they are working their way around the country upgrading the isp to a faster speed.If you dont have comcast Im not sure what will happen.Probably all isp's will be doing that in the future.
