I just upgraded the home Desktop because I will be attending online college. So I had a 19" square (not widescreen) LCD, and I bought a 24" widescreen, which is basically the same height as the 19" but ALMOST twice as wide, so I am running them side by side which is almost like having trip 19's ....
Then I decided that I want to run virtual machines since I am sick and tired of spyware\malware\viruses destroying a software build that might take me 8 to 16 hours to do! I got VMWare, but the current machine was a DAWG, it had a dual core 3.0 intel, and 1GB or RAM. I fixed that up in short order! I upgraded it to a quad 2.4ghz, and 8GB of RAM to wash it down with! That means that I took the plunge and got Vista Ultimate 64, and the machine is running JUST happily, and I can feed my Virtual machines 1GB of RAM for operation, and I did upgrade to a 1tb SATAIII drive as well!!!! This thing is SMOKIN!!!!!
I can rebuild a machine in minutes now, instead of days! I am on now from a virtual image of an OS called Backtrack3 which is a Penetration Testers OS build in Slackware!!!
OMG I am SUCH a GEEK !!!!
I guess admitting that you have a problem is the first step in recovery!!!
