Another week passes by and my PC is still broken and I’m still not any closer to getting it working and starting work on the Baby-Green site again. I’ve had no reply from Gigabyte on my motherboard, but then I didn’t expect anything less from them.

Daniel’s new PC arrived today and is now sat in our hallway for me to build over the weekend for him. I think he’s going to really enjoy getting his hands on it once I’m done with it. Seeing it sat here though is spurring the ever growing thoughts in my mind started by Nicky that I may get one to replace my ever problematic PC.

I decided to have a look around the Dell site this evening to look at the PC’s that are available only to find that Dell over the last week have discontinued producing that model of PC, and none of their other models really fit my wants and needs, so I’m now at a crossroads? Do I buy one that’s not quite the same, buy one of the one’s that I actually want from someone selling a new one on eBay or do I stick with what I’ve got for another year or so, and just upgrade to a new motherboard to fix the problem? Oh the woe’s of my tale!!

We’ll see what happens eh.
