Okay - I'm one of those hold-outs that still has XP. (I got the machine right around the time Vista was coming out, and I wasn't having any
of that.) Mr. Oniya wants to get me a new tower - not too expensive - that I can transition over to. I'll still have my old machine until I can update some of my more obscure 32-bit applications, but the new machine would let me stop using the little Oni's machine for one thing.
I know I need a better graphics card than the one in this machine (Minecraft borks at it if I'm not careful - something about OpenGL, and I can't run modpacks at all), and more RAM would be nice (always nice), but I'm really out of touch with what I'm really going to need
I'm hoping to stay away from proprietary builds so that upgrading in the future is able to be more 'as needed' instead of 'Well, in order to change out your graphics card, you need a whole new system.' (F-ing 'e-Machine')
So, Elliquiy techies, talk at me!
