I'm on a desktop which does give me a lot more options. I can upgrade
my video card and stuff to "improve" the speed. I think my CPU and ram
will be fine but a faster video card would help, although what I have is
not really bad tho.
My current rig is a AMD 2500+ with 2Gbs of ram sitting on a Abit NF7
v2.0 mobo. I have a Nvidia FX-5200 with 128Mb of ram for a video card.
I have two older IDE drives and one SATA drive that is for data, movies
and such as that.
It's about 5 or 6 years old but it still works. I hope to keep it
working for a lot longer tho. May move it to the closet when I get me a
new rig built.
P. S. I'm currently building a update for KDE 4. It appears to be KDE
4.3.4. I can't wait to check it out.
Estimated update time: 8 hours, 7 minutes.
