PC Upgrade


I upgraded my home PC with some RAM (512MB that should have
been recognised as 784MB - see my previous diary entry)
and a 750MHz P3 bought off eBay and I can see the
dramatic improvement this upgrade has brought to my
system compared
to the 128MB RAM and a 450MHz P2 that I had on this PC.

My system now scores 1280 on 3DMark
compared to 585 before the upgrade! More importantly,
GCC 3.4 now does a clean bootstrap in ~2 hours instead
~3.5 hours earlier!

I now eagerly await my GeForce 3 graphics card, also
bought off eBay, so that I can enjoy Half Life 2!
