Got a new computer!

So excited. Found an ad on Craigslist for this moderate gaming PC for $100, and a week later (yesterday) we drove up and got it from somebody in Austin. And I not only got the computer, but managed to get the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and a Razer mousepad as well.
The specs are pretty decent. It’s got an AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+, which has two cores and is clocked at 3 GHz (omg), 2 GB of RAM (which I will upgrade soon), and it came with an nVidia GeForce 7300GS, but I put my MSI Radeon 5450 in there instead. It also has a 250 GB hard drive, but I’m using it for storage since my 80 GB drive is faster.
It plays all my games pretty darn well, Minecraft is maxed out, Portal 2 runs smoothly almost maxed out, and I can finally play Team Fortress 2 again :D
The case is full of dust though, need to get that blown out properly soon. I cleaned out the important areas like the heatsink and fans though.
So happy. I like computers again.
