Have spent the last few evenings installing and configuring my new PC. Was a bit tricky putting my old hard drive into the new case (only one IDE slot !) – lots of SATA slots which is good.
And getting used to the new keyboard, with the ‘curve’ – will take a bit to get used to. New router is great, setup XBox, and wireless for laptop too.
New printer is a behemoth – USS Enterprise ! Haven’t got it printing yet, but done the pre-warp ink-pot checks and sample printing.
As for the running of the PC – well, I was able to run Windows XP (VM) with 1024 MB RAM – as well as a Windows Server 2003 VM – with 1024 MB RAM (also) – and the main PC was running fine !
Here’s the updated Windows Experience Index (compared to my old system) :
And just a “few” drive letters taken up – FOUR of these are for the USB card reader – and another (GW2) is my portable drive.
Nearly 500 GB ready to fill ! *yay* (320 GB SATA + 200 GB IDE)
