Hmm, my desktop is getting old. The Pentium D 805 with Intel D102 motherboard is not quite able to push things forward.. The things that were keeping it alive and kicking were the 1.5 GB RAM and nVidia 9600GT graphics card..
I hear that the new Intel i7’s packs a big punch but the cost is certainly having a bigger punch. Probably I will wait till things cool down a bit – wait for Intel to reduce the prices and a cheaper chipset.
