250gig... Nice

Wednesday, November 29, 2006

Well, I FINALLY got my new hard drive! It feels good to have a little breathing room again. As for my old 40gig... that will house a new Linux distro (Ubuntu?). But as for distro choices... I am thinking about actually installing Gentoo Linux on my new hard drive and perhaps Ubuntu on the 40gig. Not sure. I have already tried twice to install Gentoo... both times went rather poorly (I just didn't know enough). But now, I feel confidant. I've just heard too much good stuff about Gentoo... and if I can get it installed.... w00t! Another rung up in the ladder of 1337-ness! So yeah, I can't wait to get started. Right now I am still running SUSE of the 40gig... but this weekend looks like a good time to install Gentoo (give it plenty of time to compile). I also got another 512MB stick of RAM. They were having a sale down at TigerDirect... 512MB for $10! It was awesome... but only one per customer. Oh well. Here are my new system stats:
  • AMD Athlon 3700+ Socket 939 "SanDiego" core @ 2.2Ghz (thinking of overclocking)
  • 1.5GIGs Ultra PC3200 DDR 400MHZ RAM
  • ASRock DUAL-SATA2 Motherboard
  • 250gig Seagate Barracuda Hard Drive 7200 RPM
  • 40gig Hard Drive 5400RPM
  • PNY Verto GeForce 6200 Graphics Card 128MB AGP 8x = (
  • CD Burner + Seperate DVD Drive
What needs to change:
  • Graphics Card: To be replaced with an XFX GeForce 7600GT PCI-express (Christmas... i hope)
  • Optical Drives: I NEED A DVD BURNER!!! Getting one within the next couple of weeks... Thinking about getting this one.
Yeah... so there you have it! OH! I also got a 2GIG Flash Drive from my dad (YAY! Thanks Dad!), gave my other one to my sister. Thinking of installing Linux on it... maybe slax? Or perhaps a security-based distro... BackTrack? I'll see what I can get to work. Linux is awesome... you can put it on ANYTHING!!!
