    YYYYYYYEEEEEEESSSSSS :D :D :)

    I've got a new PC !!!!!

    My first XP (home, Dutch) machine ;)
    My first new machine in about 7 years (maybe more).

    P4 630, 3.0 GHz,
    Gigabyte GA-8I915PLG LGA775/PCI-E mobo,
    512 MB RAM,
    HD: WD 80 GB S-ATA,
    DVD: NEC ND3550 DVD +/- Dual Layer,
    Video card: XFX Geforce 6200,
    Floppy drive

    It's a present from a very dear friend.
    (No, you don't know her although I sometimes post as guest from her machine).
    Lots and lots and lots of thanks A !!!!!!!!!! :-* :-* :-*
    No way that I myself could have afford it ....

    It was a Celeron machine, and I paid to get the P4.

    Well, it is actually just in the box at the moment.....

    LOL, be prepared for a lot of questions ;)
    Questions in the first place about unneeded services :oops:
    And then: I still have not decided which firewall to run (still running AtGuard on my W98SE machine).


    WOOOOHOOOOOO :D :D :D

    Good to hear you got a new toy to play with
    and on top of that for free. :D
    I'm sure you'll learn it quite fast enough with the help of
    your friends here.
    A big :-* to A for giving this to you.
    Have fun Jan. ;)

    Great News Jan - I'm very happy for you. :)

    Nice things happen to nice people. ;)

    That's very kind of your good friend, and from other postings where you've mentioned "A", we know their very good people too. I'm sure "A" was overjoyed to be able to provide you with this gift. :)

    Enjoy :cool:
