….for my parents.
Yes, not interesting at all.
So I just bought a parts for a new computer.
That’s it. Hard drive is still good (it’s a SATA) but unfortunately, had to get a new SATA optical drive as the motherboard I got doesn’t have IDE. My, how times change.
It kinda sucks because I’ve gone quite a few optical drives but none of them will work with any new computer.
My parents now have a computer better than my own – It’s still Dual Core but it’s 3.4 Ghz (mine is a mere 2.4 Ghz).
Their motherboard uses DDR3 RAM (my uses DDR2) though they’re still on XP so I don’t think all the RAM is being properly allocated/used.
I decided not to get a new computer for a while – I’ll get it when mine breaks….not sure what would have to break though. My HDD (Hard Disk Drive) is new, it’s an SSD (Solid State Drive). The PSU’s (Power Supply Unit?) good and if that broke, wouldn’t warrant a new computer. No, the only way for me to get a new computer would be if my Motherboard or CPU (Central Processing Unit) fried or something. Or maybe my Video Card.
Sadly though, I don’t need a new computer and probably won’t get one for the foreseeable future. Patience is a virtue! If I’m patient, I will be rewarded with an awesome-er computer in the future, that is cheaper than what I would spend now.
I’m just killing time on my parent’s computer…waiting it to defrag of all things! When was the last time I defragged a HD?! Probably…when I was using XP!
That’s it for now…will blog more when I get my regular computer hooked up.
