Guys... I'm as dudely as a dude can be.... apart from my taste in music!! I was just trying to best show HOW HAPPY I AM!!! because Hot Dang! this is awesome!! The reason i'm soo happy is because over the past ~10 months, close to a year, i've been accumulating money to retire my current desktop.... and this is like a blessing. $500 (i've accumulated $438 to be exact) means i can take another course at my school, or invest in a suit... the last time i bought a suit was ~3 years ago and being a business student... 1 jacket aint take a man too far. I'm not a religious person, but this has truly come as a blessing! Excited?? HELL YEAA, this PC doesnt only mean a new computer, it means i can spend i get some extra education, invest in something else i need. Truly HH (including everyone) i am in debt to you! Thank you sou soo much!!

Well Lifeskills, at the moment i have absoultely nothing planned for it. I'm not a gamer by any means and i only use after effects once in a blue moon to make videos for student groups at school and what not. I think because this is such a beast of a machine, i'll be using it to fold@home or contribute to something haha. Buuuut I am excited nonetheless!! cant wait. Annnnd Fine.. i'll make a video of it in use!! hahah Thanks once again!
