Thank You, Shaun!

I have to give a big thank you shout out to Shaun. He spent a good portion of his Saturday rebuilding my computer. We replaced the motherboard, the processor, the memory, the video card and the power supply. The new machine is built around an AMD 64 Athlon 3700+ and a geForce 7800 GTX. The hard drive was reformatted and my favorite apps have a fresh new install. The computer performs better than I'd hoped. It's my first AMD machine. I've always been an Intel guy. But so far I'm really happy with it. It's crazy fast, and World of Warcraft looks gorgeous and smooth at 1920x1200 with every graphical setting maxed out. I thought about overclocking the CPU, but it's already so zippy there's really no reason to press my luck.

Thanks again, man!
