Due to my wife's PC crashing about once an hour and my system requirements having gone up after getting into all this digital artwork I am finally going to get some needed upgrades.

Last night I went to fry's electronics and bought new Mobo, cpu, ram, power supply, Win7 (never used that before), and a new graphics card. The goal is to rebuild my machine and use my existing gear to rebuild my wife's. I hope I'm back within a couple days at least.

Baring any real issues I should be back back tomorrow but we'll see.
