Thanks to all of you for helping me decide on what components to purchase for my new computer. It arrives from Monarch Computers today, but now I'm not sure what to do first, aside from opening it up and verifying all the right parts are in it.
What tests/checks should I perform on my new computer?
Are you getting your computer from a reputable computer store like dell or even e-machine?, beause they do the reliablity test before they ship to you. and you might just need a performance test for you info.
