    Last weekend my hard drive started making a clicking sound and started freezing up.

    Its working OK now but still , its about 7 years old. Its probably time for a new one anyway.

    I think I'll take this one and hook it up to my TV just for the sake of fucking around with shit.

    Figured I'd start a thread about it.

    You know , since we are all using computers now.

    I just need it for general use.

    I haven't played video games since someone gave my dad an Atari back in the 80's.

    unless you are stirring shit or creating some retarded spin off thread, no one cares what you say.

    hopefully you have a backup of your old box.

    The problem went away so I'm going to hold off on buying a new one.

    I did pick up a new widescreen monitor though. I love it.

    Unless you can find a Windows 7 machine for sale, hold off until 10 becomes available.

    Or be a huge annoying faggit and buy a Mac.
