new computer! ^^  
Hmmm... ah, I really need to update this more often. It seems that I don't have the time, though I really think that it's just that I don't get around to it. Bad bad lazy me! ^_^; I spend too much time rping or writing in some other random character journal, or get caught up doing something else instead. ^^; Not to mention.. I need to scan quite a few pictures! ^_^; Oops!

Well.. I ordered my new computer.. It's an expensive piece of equipment, hopefully enough to get me through school and the next few years. I have no idea how I'll get it to Japan. ^^; Here's some of the specs if that means anything to anybody..
CDRW: PIONEER DVR-A06 DUAL FORMAT DVD-RW/DVD+RW + CD-R/RW DRIVE
CPU: Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor @ 3.0GHz 800MHz FSB CS902
HDD: Western Digital 120GB 7200RPM ATA 100 8MB Special Editon
MEMORY: 1024 MB (512MBx2) PC3200 400MHz Dual Channel DDR MEMORY
MEMORYUPGRADE: From Standard Memory to CORSAIR High Performance Memory W/ Heat Spreader
MOTHERBOARD: *[DDR400-800MHz FSB]MSI 865PE NEO2-LS AGP8X Platform W/SATA, AUDIO, & LAN
VIDEO: nVidia GeForce FX 5900 128MB 8x AGP w/ TVO, & DVI

They don't mean much to me, really. I forget what's all good these days. But I had satanclaws help me pick it out, and that's what he thought would be best without going too expensive. It sounds fine to me. ^^ Just so long as it works with all of the programs that I want and can play with video editing easily, I'm fine. ^^ I can't wait to get it!! It should be here in a week or a week and a half. ^^ I'm also getting a wacom intuos 2, which is really exciting.. I can't wait to get that one! *bounces*

Hmm.. what else.......... ^^; I've been RPing like mad when I'm online.. so I haven't been online quite as much, trying to moderate my time.

Mm, and been visitng too many friends out of the area. But it's fuuuuuuuuuuuun!! *dances* Oh crap, it's time for class! I'll try to update about that later!! Ja!

And that was all "cheap"?!! That's like... top end stuff... not not bad at all... *tech spasms*

DVD writer slash cd burner... 1 gig mem...

Though I think you could have done better to get a Radeon ^^;

Mmm, no it wasn't cheap. It was... rather expensive, easily into the 'thank god my mother is buying this because I could never afford it' range. ^^; She thought the price was cheap, though.. I think that she was expecting it to be a lot more expensive. ^^;

Well, imo, the Radeon 9800 Pro is better than the Geforce FX 5900...but of all the decent sites out there where you can build systems, the place we got it at was the cheapest and was still a good company. But for a Radeon 9800 Pro...they wanted a $100 more than the Geforce 5900...which is as good (there are very minor differences in performance) as the Radeon 9800 Pro. $100 more for no performance increase doesn't warrant the extra money (I would have done it for like $25 more). I really wanted to put a 9800 Pro in there.
