New computer sort of!

I have upgraded most components of my computer!

Old specs:
MSI KT4A-V
Athlon XP 2600+
1GB DDR333 SDRAM
GeForce4 MX 4000

New specs:
ASUS M2V
Athlon 64 X2 4200+
2GB PC2-5300 DDR2 RAM
GeForce 7800 GT

Staying the same, for now:
80GB 7200RPM PATA
250GB 7200RPM PATA
CD-RW/DVD-ROM PATA
DVD-RW PATA
Ultra X-Connect 500W PSU
The case, floppy drive, fans, etc...

I ran into no problems upgrading, and all Windows complained about was that it needed to re-activate due to massive hardware change (which was, of course, fine - I'm legal and all).

The only thing I noticed was that I didn't have the correct power cord for my PCI-Express card... but since my power supply is modular, I simply ordered the extra cable, which should be here in a few days. Until then, my video card is running at lower power, so I don't get to test it out its full capabilities... but that day will soon arrive!

Oh BTW Sophie any more news about the monitor? I am totally set to pick it up wheneverz, so hit me up about the details.
