Graphics card bought. PC power supply to supply the monster, bought.

Both components installed.

PC turns on. CD with drivers runs. Nothing happens. (Graphics card? what graphics card?)

PC turns off. New card gets removed. Old cards gets shoved back in.

PC turns on. drivers from teh internets downloaded. Nothing happens. (Graphics card? what graphics card?)

PC turns off. I punch some walls. Old card gets removed. New card gets re-shoved in.

PC turns on. anything remotely useful gets backed up.

Hard drive gets wiped out. Let's try install Vista so that I can learn it at home.

Yeah, right. CD from Rees's laptop refuses to install itself.

Off to Best Buy, Circuit City AND Costco for good measure. Noone sells 64bit off the rack unless you buy Ultimate which I barely need.

Off back home. Let's just install XP for now.

XP gets installed. Everything appears to be working. For about 15 minutes. Then, slowassness happens out of nowhere.

More wall punching.

XP reinstalled.

Everything works, for now. Confetti gets tossed.
