BigZonka's PC Profile

Hi, My name is Dana and this is my first build which I started in 11/06 and just finished the major portion.I am an old man that likes playing on the computer so much so that I decided to build my own.With a limited income I had to stretch it over a period of time with a monthly budget. I will be expanding as I go so any feedback would be appreciated.Not long I will be adding a photo and maybe build another one(it kinda gets into your blood)
