New computer, Part II

[ #34256 ]
I wrote

So to see that I can get an Athlon 64 Dual Core 5000, 2 GB RAM and a harddisk that could have acted as a data center 10 years ago for a few thousaned DKK makes the heart beat faster and eyes glimpse extra.

Actually I decided on an AMD Dualcore X2 6000+, NVIDIA NFORCE motherboard with 2GB RAM and 250GB disk.

The proposed Graphics Adapter - NVIDIA GEFORCE 8600GT - was coming with active cooling, so I decided to change to a 8500GT with passive cooling and a more quiet power supply.

It will be here in a couple of days, and I'm rather anxious to install Linux and start to measure, and feel, the performance gain compared to my three year old Fujitsu/Siemens laptop.
