New computer for pop

I built a computer for pop a while back. It was a Pentium 4 1.6GHz with a cheesy mobo, 128MB of RAM, 32MB of shared video memory and an ancient 8GB hard drive. Today I decided to take the retired Dell Dimension 4400 (which has a 2.4GHz proc, 40GB hard drive, 512MB of RAM and a 64MB vid card) and rebuilt it for pop.

I had the original Dell "restore" CD-ROM with WinXP Home Edition so I installed that. Service pack'd it and then installed all his stuff. Worked out quite well, and it zips along quite nicely. I had forgotten that this Dell is no slouch.

It's kind of funny that a 2.4GHz Pentium 4 with 512MB of RAM, 40GB hard drive and 64MB vid card is considered obsolete. I mean, it does run everything (with the exception of high-end games) quite well. The computer is speedy enough to handle just about anything you throw at it, and it's really quiet.

What's funny is that if I decided to sell this computer, the most I could get for it is probably 200 bucks.
