Our home computer has been running slowly for a long time now.  I tried erasing everything and starting from scratch about 3 months ago but the problem still persisted.  I didn’t think the computer was that old, but when I checked my purchase history at NewEgg, it showed I was already pushing past 4 years on this PC.  $360 later I had an almost entirely new machine.  For the techies who read (is that just Joe?), I ended up with:

After about 4 hours, the machine was up and running with Windows XP installed and patched up, Network/Video/Sound drivers updated, and Firefox installed.  This morning I got down to tweaking Firefox with my favorite add-ons.  Next up is getting Microsoft Office and iTunes installed.
