Re: first pc
I'd try to get more HD space... 36.7G isn't that much. Even my laptop has 60G :P And as the others hvae said, some form of CD-R would be a good idea... Weither it be DVD-CD-RW or perhaps an additional CD-RW(so you could make duplicates)
Desktop: Athlon 64 3700, 1024M RAM, GF 6200 TC 256M, 2x 80G, 2x DVD-RW
Laptop: Sempron 2800, 512M RAM, Unichrome, 60G, DVD-RW
Macintosh:G4 1.33GHz, 512M RAM, Radeon 9200 32M, 40G, DVD/CDRW
They get me from 0 to 1...
