Renewing and speeding up my desktop

I had decided to buy a new desktop as the current one seemed too slow. It just did not seem useful to buy more cpu cores for primarily browsing the web.

I had been looking for solid state disk options for the last few months after reading about their prices crashing. Unfortunately, this was not reflected in the prices of these disks in my area. However, recently I found an online store offering a reasonably attractive price for a 60GB SSD. It was delivered to me the day I read Linus Torvalds"Get thee behind me, Satan" comment . A very nice coincidence.

Indeed, my desktop's performance now is terrific. I can save it from a landfill for another few years :)
