Default New PC woo hoo

I'm stoked to start doing some photo post processing. I always put it off due to a old slow PC but I just got a new hp xw8400 work station. Dual quad processors, 12 gig ram and the same video card used by Dream Works Studios to do their movies. Only problem is no operating system so I have to get Windows 7 ultimate and load it then I'm good to go.

Not cool to use the word smoke in a computer thread.

In my world as an electrician when something lets go electrically, we lovingly call it "letting the smoke out" of what ever it is that failed.
Congratulations on the new machine. May it serve you well and long.
