Oh yessir! She's CLEAN! Next week our organization is buying me an ASUS
motherboard with an AMD 6 core processor and 16 GIGS of ram. Oh yeah...
I'll be in the chips for a least a couple of months, before it's old
news and turns crufty. I'll be adding another identical nVidia graphics
board, so I'll be able to report back on running 4 monitors at once.
But, it'll be much cheaper than that Mac-Mini another poster noted.
Screw a Mac. I shelled out 2 large for my first Apple ][ with two floppy
drives, in 1978 dollars, and got kicked under the bus after a year or
so, for my troubles. So, I couldn't give a whit less for another Apple
nor the horse they rode in on. Take THAT Jobs! I'm still here and happy
as a little wet clam without you! :) Ric
