Today finally arrived the hardware parts I've ordered from Chiptec. It's really amazing how computer hardware is getting cheaper. Of course this is a very simple system (Dual Core 2.4Ghz), but I'm not a (true) gamer. If it runs Urban Terror and lets me code stuff, it suits me just fine.
After installing all the parts, I had to buy a SATA DVD-RW Drive because none of my IDE drives worked with the new board.
With this new hardware, I couldn't resist to give Windows Vista a try. I've used it many times at work and on my girlfriend's laptop, but never at home.
It was the first OS I installed on the machine, and guess what, Vista turned my brand new hardware into a big and fat pile of donkey shit. It was almost slower than my Pentium 4. As I write this, Ubuntu is installing, for the sake of my mental health.
