I ended up buy this: Gateway - Desktop with Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9300
. I'm also going to upgrade the other computer. My issues with the AMD Athalon 4600+ X2 Dual Core
system was from experiencing system lags. I don't know what HP and AMD did, but they create a computer that felt like a lemon.
I'm not a big Gateway fan (not to mention I hate Intel), but the new computer was the best in it's class. I cannot believe how quite the system is, and it is blazzing fast with responding to clicks. I feel like a youngling in a candy store.
Windows Vista on the new machine is a 64bit and 32bit hybrid operating system. What an incredible difference in all around functioning.
