well since my computer is more than 3 years old and is running some hardware older than my niece... i think its time for me to get an upgrade. I recently got my federal taxes in the mail and has boosted me up about 1000$. so i decided to go ahead and get me some new parts.
now when i built my computer it cost me about 1100$. this purchase is only half the amount of parts and yet it costs the same. technology these days. heres is what i bought!
