I am carbuff
Hi, I am carbuff a long time computer user. In fact, my initial introduction to computing was learning punch cards for the old IBM system.
My first PC was a Dell the month following the opening of that company for business. Since then, I have purchased many desktops, notebooks and laptops. Beginning in 1994, I began putting together my own personal systems using bare bones shells with the components that I thought were state-of-the art technical marvels at the time. However, since age has caught up with me making it difficult to handle screws and such, I have gone back to off-the-shelf devices.
My present desktop is a Dell XPS 8910. I have modified it with the physical help of a friend. I have upgraded it to contain two 750GB SSD's, a more powerful PSU, a very good graphics card and a sound card cabled to my home theaters system.
I hope to learn from others in this forum and to contribute if something in a thread catches my attention that I might add to from my experience.
