Nice, nice, nice.

Up your page file slightly..

Which monitor you got? I cant stand 1024x768 on desktops..

nVidia Chipset...nice

Hehe, you got Golf99 and Flight Simulator on there?

And a nice wireless connection by the looks of things, you got one nice PC man.

Cant see a double thread...

The only thing I would look into changing is the video card.

Evan though its 256mb, its onboard, aint going to be good for many things..

Look into it..

Which motherboard is it...cant find it on dxdiag..

Onboard graphics = it uses RAM and memory. So you are better off getting a new video card with its own dedicated memory.

go to my computer and right click on it and go to properties. It probably wont say the exact amount of RAM you have depending what you set it to.

There is no such thing at 1020mb, it should be 1024 so your graphics card is currently using only 4mb of RAM to display your desktop and browser.
