Don't get me wrong, Chiyo-chan is still the smartest and fastest computer on the block, and with her new 19" LCD monitor, the prettiest too. However, it's been two years since her last upgrade (420w PSU, 7600GT graphics card), and I've been meaning to do this particular upgrade since the day I got her.
So now, Chiyo-chan has all her DIMM slots filled, and a total of 3gb of RAM. She's a lot peppier than she was (and she was pretty zippy then), lemme tell ya.

There's never been a better time to buy disk drives - the value for money is amazing. Even the top-end 1TB drives are cheap now. I just bought two Western Digital 640GB drives myself, so I can backup my fansub collection. (Do not want a repeat of the disaster I had last year!)

It's a wonderful world.

I just snagged one of Maxtor's 500GB externals for $99 at the BigBlueBox. It's nice except that you could use the front panel activity light as a spotlight in a midnight blizzard if you wanted. I may need to move it to the computer that isn't in the bedroom or I'll never get any sleep.
