Well, those bastards at Intel not only changed socket dimensions for the
chip, so I'd have to buy a new motherboard, but also the dimensions on
the motherboard have changed, so I can't use my big ugly case (tm).
Anyways, I wanna build my own PC again and I thought you Kalifornia-ites
might know a good place where I can mail order my dream components and
pay for them in happy American Kopecs. For cheap.
In the meantime I'll continue trying to convince my mother that, despite
its ugliness, the 166 won't blow up if I turn off a fan or two to reduce
the noise. I think I'll burn Mom for about $600 for it. (Hmm... should
I NOARCHIVE this post?).
* Bonus love at FoRKCon Vancouver (October) for anyone who finds a
skookum black case!
