*does the new computer happy dance*
Specs, for those interested:
AMD Athlon X2 2.9 GHz
Gigabyte S2 AM3 motherboard
2GB of RAM
250 GB hard drive
Windows 7 Home Premium (32 bit)
LG Flatron 21.6" monitor - amazingly clear and sharp!
I've spent most of last night and today setting it up, and getting it the way I like it. I went out and purchased a portable hard drive (WD Elements 320GB, USB powered - about the size of a pack of cards!) to use with the Windows 7 Easy Transfer Wizard, which I am happy to report worked exactly as advertised.
So far, no problems with any of my peripherals, which is good. All just plugged in and worked right
