New PowerHouse for home

Four years ago, I assembled my home computer with Pentium 4 1.8GHz CPU and MSI 845G MAX Motherboard. It is a great desktop which has put up with all my abuses during the years.
Although I love my aging computer, recently I found quite irritated by the time I need to wait for some new applications to launch and the slow response. With all the cheap dual-core CPUs out on the market, I figured it is time for an upgrade.
Considering that I need a CPU that can handle mostly everyday tasks from email to office, plus testing out several operation systems like the Mac OS X (x86), I decided to go with the Intel Pentium D, which has the intel virtualization technology (VT) built-in.

Here is the configuration of my new Powerhouse:

Pentium D 940 3.2GHz Dual Core
Intel D945GNT motherboard
1GB DDR2 4200 Memory
Onboard Intel GMA 950 Graphics
Onboard Sigmatel 9223 Audio
Onboard Gigabit LAN
Onboard 1394a Firewire
300GB ATA + 300GB SATA + 320GB ATA RAID 0
16x DVD+/-RW
Cooler Master UFO Bearing CPU Cooling Fan
Antec SLK1650B Case

Data migration from my old computer has now been finished, and as a test, I installed OS X 10.4.7 and it runs really fast. Woohoo! My toy for the next four years!

    This is the right site for anyone who would
    like to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost
    hard to argue with you (not that I really would
    want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh
    spin on a subject which has been discussed for a long time.

    Excellent stuff, just wonderful!
