I'm at the point I go pay the local tech guy to help do upgrades since he gets the good stuff at about the price I would and the charge for him doing it is not that bad. He's also a gamer so we get all geeky when doing anything with my computers. Thankfully I only have to mess with upgrading or fixing things now and then. Only thing I have to back up now is a couple new word docs by putting them on a thumb drive and the laptop. I'm debating on how to backup all my pictures off of three machines and one is a very old laptop that MIGHT still work. HA HA
Grats on getting the upgrade in, boo on losing files though. And your games will definitely work better now considering it was an upgrade to replace the dying one.
