My 4 year old Gateway is finally seeing its final days. It will shortly be broken up, and the best bits sold off. A PIII 500 with 288Mb of RAM and a quaint 6.8Gb hard drive. All praise to Gateway – not once in 4 years did it give a problem. Not once.
My new Dell will arrive next week. 4 years on and the PC hardware has changed substantially. This time its a:
Pentium 4 3.0Ghz
1024Mb DDR2 RAM
160Gb 7200rpm Hard drive
128Mb ATI Radeon X300SE (PCI Express x16)
It should meet the minimum requirements for Doom 3, hopefully. Many nights will be spent on America’s Army and Half Life 2.
