    The less you know about hardware, the happier you are with upgrades. I recently spent a whopping $388 on upgrading my 2004 computer. New PSU, new cd/dvd writer, slightly more powerful Nvidia graphics card, a couple of ram sticks, and an additional hard drive. I know what you’re thinking, “must be a bunch of crap,” right? But, from my uneducated point of view, what I have is a faster, happier system with all its parts humming along with no glitches. At least, that was my attitude until I read your article, here :)

    Your sister and your nephew will be happier if you don’t express your opinion too honestly.

    Arguable. :) Upgrade fact itself is nice, but process of putting it together and recognition of specific improvements are also enjoyable.

    Actually I don’t. I strongly believe that we approach point where there would be impossible to have really crappy system.

    Currently even lowest tier hardware manages to provide reasonable performance in office tasks and basic (at least) multimedia functions. And convergence of functions into less physical chips makes harder to put together unbalanced and unfair configurations.

    Ehm, so what is your attitude now?

    For a long time reader you think too highly of my tact. :)
