Brain Music

My brain is currently playing "Opera Singer" by Cake. However, it isn't using the original lyrics. It is substituting the words to the MST3K theme.

Because he used
those special parts
to make his
ro-boooooot friends.

Computer Question

I intend to buy a new computer, but I have a processor question.

My current computer is 3-4 years old. It has a 3.39 Ghz processor and a gig of RAM.

The Dell I'm considering has a quad processor at 2.66 Ghz It'll have 4 Gig of RAM.

How do the 2 machines compare in speed? In other ways?

Next Question

Video Card

  • ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO 128MB
  • ATI Radeon HD3650 256MB
  • Radeon ATI HD 2600 XT 256MB
  • ATI Radeon HD3870 512MB GDDR4
  • nVidia GeForce 9800 GT 512MB

I don't want the last one, too much money. However, which of the other 4 should I get? Is there a big difference? Does it all come from RAM?
