Sensitive to Perfection
I’ve often refuted the statement that I’m a perfectionist, but just now I described myself “sensitive to perfection”. Even I have to admit that’s the same thing.
I finally bought the parts for a computer upgrade I’ve been thinking about for months. I haven’t spent my birthday money and it’s almost Thanksgiving so I’m start to feel a little “sensitive to saving” and need to disprove my cheapskate ways. I got it all from NewEgg and hopefully I’ll have it in time to install it over the vacation weekend. The shopping list is:
- Plextor PX-708A (DVD/CD Burner)
- ABIT IS7-E (Motherboard with so much goodness built in)
- 2 512MB Kingston DDR400 DIMMs
- Intel Pentium 4 2.6CGHz 800Mhz FSB processor
- Samsung 1.44MB black floppy drive
That final item is a silly addition so that all my components will be black to match my black case. I’m replacing enough that I’ll nearly have an entire computer left over when I’m done. I haven’t upgraded these core components for years, eschewing them in favor of external accessories or case upgrades. Currently technology has finally gotten fast enough that my computer feels sluggish. It doesn’t help that my machine at work is currently faster than at home.
