|Didn't buy it - my wife inherited it when the school she was managing went under. In fact, the school didn't even buy it, really, but that's a tale for (and from) another day ...|
As you suggest one should, I've already upgraded pretty much everything else ... 450W Corsair Power Supply, EVGA NVidia 9500GT PCIe Video card, 4G of RAM (seems wasteful, I know, but 4x1G actually worked out cheaper than 2x1G + 2x512M ... go figya!), and a 2 TB Hard Disk. The plan is to use this box as a media-center PC - the display is a 42" HDTV.
Still, with all that nice peripheral stuff, it still hasn't got the horsepower to record a video stream. But a 3 GHz Dual-Core with 2M of Cache should improve that issue, I'll wager.
