Computer Carcass: Day of Mourning

My 4 (5?) year old computer has bitten the great dust ball in the sky. I think I'm sorta responsible for that.

Computh~enasia?

I had been given some new 1gig memory strips and plugged them in. Unfortunately, my motherboard and power supply were not strong enough to handle it.

I booted up my PC and POOF! Carcass. Sorta like the preying mantis gorging on grasshopper heads (sorry Mrs X). Too much of a good thing, I guess? :)

Yes yes...just call me kat-kervorkia.

Soooo. I went online with a coworker and we picked out some new insides for my PC case.

We can rebuild it.

Faster.

Stronger...




*cue empty pocket book music*

Good news is...when I'm done building it...I will have a new smokin' game machine!

WOO!

Bring it....BRING IT!
