Well....i just got off the phone and ordered new computer. Should be here in 3-5 days, and hopfully cable company will be here to get her running in the same time.

Here are the specs:

Intel Pentium D Extreme Edition, dual-core, HT Tech. (3.2GB )
500GB Sata II Raid1 Hard Drive
2GB memory ( DDR2 SDRAM )
256mb Nvidia GeForce 6800
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Dolby Digital

This is all from a Dell XPS Generation 5

I'm thinking that i won't have shaking screen anymore and finally have some fun for once. As you can imagine, i am pleased and waiting like a little kid. Should be a wonderful experience going from this old 866mhz to the new monster coming from the UPS man.

Hope you'll be doing some benchies on that, so we can see how it performs and compare it with others.

RAID-0 would've given you faster performance but at least RAID-1 will back up your data and be a less risky solution.

Cool

Think you have to join the forum to be able to post.
There are several benchmarks available on that thread and the titles refer to the software used for each.
Current favourites (for reasons of hardware evolution) are;
3DMark05 and Aquamark.
It's a matter of downloading the (free) software and running on a fresh boot (so ur system's cool which will give better results). don't run anything distracting in the background which may interfere with the benchies. I disabled my AV and firewall n disconnected from the internet (after scanning the prog's to ensure it was safe to do so).
These benchies r mainly for graphic card performance but there are others (SiSoft Sandra) which will test the whole system even pointing out possible improvements and weak areas.
Good luck with them.
