I'm tempted to get a PC just for games... then I thought... no.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Well, this will be the HQ PC...not just for games.

God, I hate Fedex so much. Sitting here now waiting for the idiot to come with my computer.

Backed up this old one...and am now feeling really good about divorcing Vista

Windows 7 on the new one? Or 8?

I went 7 because I'm scared of 8. Though I am getting a hand-me-down Windows 8 laptop from the grandfather next month. Unless he throws it against the wall before then.

Win 7 is the better bet for a desktop. Win 8 is strangely designed between touch-screen and desktop and ends up making people hate it.

I have 7 and it's nice. I got it for my mom's laptop-to-replace-desktop also, because she is not ready to learn a new OS...
