The changing of the card

Posted 6 September 2006 in computer

Shevchenko, my computer, died on Monday - its video card failed. I mourned my downtime and started looking for a replacement card. I ended up buying the EVGA e-GeForce 6200. I realize that it's not the best on the market, but it's comparable to my old VisionTek Xtasy GeForce 4 Ti4600, and/so my wallet didn't take a significant hit.

My computer's up and running now, but I should mention that it'll be going offline over the weekend and into the middle of next week: I'm heading back to Northwestern.
