Got a desktop at Gilmore a week ago: 3Ghz Athlon dualcore, 2gigs RAM, 16-inch LED monitor, etc. Fairly standard setup, nothing fancy. Next project on the wishlist's trickier: bootloader then dual-boot Ubuntu and Win7.
So, desktop, a chance to catch up to current standard specs. Got StarCraft 2 (took a while to find a bootleg that worked) and I'm about halfway through on normal difficulty with no cheats.
