My System

Jeff spent a few years (O.K., that’s an exaggeration) helping me build this system. I can’t believe he put up with all my annoying questions (I’m the obsessive customer from hell).

Don’t forget to check out some cool pictures of my system.

  1. That looks like one sweet machine. Is the Vista 64 working out for you? I’ve heard people say that it’s everything it’s cracked up to be and too many problems with software.

    • Vista 64 bit certainly poses some compatibility problems. But the problems are minor. Almost all 32 bit programs can run on a 64 bit system. They just don’t take advantage of all the 64 bit system has to offer. Eventually 32 bit will be a thing of the past. Get on board.

  2. Curious as to how much did your system finally cost?
