Schweet![Beer] That is a nice machine![:D] You da man! I am just "stuck" with my hp laptop P4 2.4, 512 DDR, 60G, with an ATI Radeon Mobility card running WinXP home(boy) edition.[BD] Not that I am complaining though as it works much faster than the one I had before...An old IBM 286 or 386? machine with a 133Mhz processor, 40Mb of ram and a 5 or so Gig harddrive with Win98.

wow, and I still thought my 1.8 P4 was fast... I guess I need to wake up and smell the silicone.

Dang, got me beat in single proc apps... only dual 2000's overclocked a bit [;)] here.
Running WinXP home until I get my XP Pro edition swapped over to the new machine or install Win2000. I'm really looking forward to the hours on long disitance hold to Redmond to tell Bill Gates that I need my OfficeXP and XP Professional activated on the new machine. Kind of makes I guy want to hack the software he actually paid for [:(]

You use the internet to register that. If it's already registered, they give you an 800 number to call, takes less than 2 minutes. No hold time when I called up to do that. They really dont say anything if it's not being called in on multiple computers in a short period of time.
Need to add a 4x DVD-R recorder in the next month or so to complement the two CD-R burners. I make VCD's for my friends and having two burners allows me to make twice the copies. I got tired of 24 and 36 hour rendering jobs using TMPGenc making MPEG1 and MPEG2 movies on my old 750Mhz/768 Mb/40G machine. I spent last night downloading 55 Mb of updates to Windows and Norton products [rolleyes] (yeah, I know but let me live in my fantasy world will ya'?)

Turning "on" XP home only took a couple minutes but the 45 Mb for Microsoft patches and updates plus the 10 Mb of Norton AV and Firewall took all night. I've got a copy of XP Pro that I want to install and you've got to go through the phone call activiation to get that to work. They are such shit heads that on my old machine I went from Win98 to Win2000 then installed Office XP. I then triple booted to add XP Pro thinking that I could use Office XP located on the same partition. Nope. You can only use it in one OS on the same machine at the same time [rolleyes] Wankers.

Bullshit. Pro and Home are 95% identical, except for the lack of fast user switching in the latter and you can't join a domain in Home either. Also, you don't have the Remote Desktop, no dual CPU support, and no file encryption. That's it. The actual files, drivers, applications etc are the same. In fact you can turn any Home installation into a full Pro install if you know how (I do ;).

If you use TMPGEnc so much then you should have gone Dual Processor, also as Mattja said an Ultra 320 or U160 with a Striped RAID - to read those *.VOB files fast! SCSI - Still the choice of those who won't compromise.

I reckon Ultra Wide SCSI would be faster than SATA Even more so with Striped RAID It's also a cheaper option than Ultra 160 or Ultra 320
