a new video card!

Well, i got a new video card to replace my ancient ATI RAge 128 Pro from 1998... This new card is an nVidia GeForce 6200. So after getting it installed and installing the drivers, I was looking at a desktop with aero. After using it some, i think that windows 7 will really stand out over all the otehr windows versions.

but i don't like overclocking!

Still, having this card is a MAJOR step-up, and i can even use Aero now and see all the enhancements that MS made.
