Finally, I got myself a new PC. I can retire my well worn Dell 4100 PIII 1Ghz and move up to a Dell Precision 370 P4 2.8Ghz with 1GB. I haven't got the machine up and running with all of my applications but so far I'm very happy. It has a 160 GB Serial ATA drive that seems to be very quick. This along with the pseudo dual processors due to Hyper Threading I am hoping that it is going to really help when I have half a dozen applications running at once.
