Now is DEFINITELY a good time to buy DDR333 ram. Up to about 4 months ago I had 256, and bought another 256 dimm, DDR266 and THAT alone cost me like 75 bucks at the time. Today? You can get a 512 DDR333 dimm for 55.

RAM has a very annoying tendency to fluctuate in price, but its been a long time since Ive seen such a huge drop over such a short period of time. Im upgrading to 1 gig as soon as I can. :p

Hey how well do you like your Tower Drunken? I was thinking I pick that up for my next computer years down the road. Would you recommend it?

It's VERY reliable. I'm able to really press it (watching a divx, surfing the web, burning a CD) all at the same time. I download alot, so I finally got the new video card because it has S-Video Out , so I can watch it on my TV, instead if the `5" Apple Flat Screen Display. The tower has all the Mac positives and negatives, powerful and reliable, but not cheap. The video card costs $175 after finding the cheapest on pricewatch.com, and the PC equivilant is around $100. Since I've had this computer for two years and it crashes annually (yes, once a year it crashes) instead of monthly.

But the real gem isn't the hardware, it's Apples OSX. Once you get it, you wonder how the hell is Windows #1? It's the best OS out there right now. (sans the hardcore Unix users, since I do not know Unix that well. Though I know OSX was built upon Unix) So if you have the money, and the tolerance for getting a Mac and not playing all the games (Monkey Island 4 and Warcraft III are the only games I play right now) then definately go for it.

[edit] Oh, you have a Mac. Umm...didn't mean to give you the whole OSX speal, then, my bad.

Hahah, don't even worry about. I love OSX. It's the best there is for what I do.

Now what I really want to know about the tower is have you ever updated memory before on it? If so how easy has it been for you? Also what all can you upgrade. I'm a total newbie at Macs this emac being my first switch and never opened anything up in my life. But if a tower is worth it I'm more then willing to lay down the cash.

Yeah, until about four months ago, I had 512 MB of Ram, in a single stick. But the offer came up to me for two 256 MB sticks of PC133 SDRAM. The Tower has 3 slots. So I have one stick of 512, and 2 256. It's really easy to open the tower. You just pull a latch and then slowly lower the side panel that has the whole computer virtually on it, sans the power sync, fan, and drives. You just flip the latches open, gently slide in the mem sticks, close the latches, close the tower, start computer and it'll recognize it. It started my "bloodlust" for computers. From there I learned to install drives, and am going to be installing all of this myself. Until I got this computer, I knew virtually nothing about the hardware aspects, and that's what I'm learning right now. But right now, I'm just a pirate.

[Edit] Since I'm new to this myself, I look alot at http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/ for what to get and learnin the lingo n such.
