Good for you Martin...I know you are into computers and games.
I still have the same 4 yr old desk top E-machine at the office..works fine for filing our ins claims , e-mail, and surfing the web.
I did get a new Acer wireless laptop for home use at Christmas time. Works fine so far but then we don't play games on it...just use it for e-mail, skype with family, some shopping, and surfing the web.
Never been much of a techie...I rely on my son-in-law for tech advise and support.
