New Computer/Memenths Computer History

Well one of the 512 meg Ram sticks died two nights ago during a botched attempt to upgrade...

I spent close to 4-5 hours @ Compusa and Thanks to a Drew and Patrick I came to the sad realization that this computer wont last for much longer....

Its been going for close to three years and is still pretty good.. but battle weary...

So A new computer has been ordered... Its... Its not a homebuilt.. its bought pre-built which.. for me is the FIRST time I have had such a computer....

I started off with a generic computer from "Wizards of DOS" in Murfreesboro TN. for my 15th birthday/Xmas (i think it was more Xmas

It was a 486 25mhz that had 8 megs ram.

I loved it because it came with WINDOWS 95!!!!!!!!!

WOW...

It got upgraded for my birthday with a 100mhz CPU and I think double the ram.

*I can't remember much on the years/time just the order)
Then there was a Pentium 1 90hmz sent by a friend online...

I upgraded that to a P1 233...

Then I did my first major upgrade to a AMD 500mhz chip

I upgraded again to a 1ghz AMD a while later..

And then to the current one the 1.83ghz AMD.

I know for a fact that at least one part whither it be the case or a addon card was moved from the old to the new configuration for some time ( I dont' count Hard Drives)

Nothing of the original 486 25 still remains.. but its spirit.. And it wont go any further.... Unless.... I could "take" a addon card for adding in more hard drives and add it in for a few weeks?

Is that enough time for the spirit to transfer?
