Looking in to the Eyes of God

…that’s how I feel tonight, because my fabulous employers gave me, as a gift, a 19" flatscreen monitor. It’s a ViewSonic VX910.

It’s pretty. Oh yes, it is pretty.

The big problem, though, is that now I am having the feeling that I need to upgrade my computer so that I have a game playing box worthy of the monitor.

The other problem is that I’m running Win2k, so I don’t get any ClearType antialiasing love. How painful is upgrading from Win2k to Windows XP? Will it throw me into a dimension of transinfinite pain? Assume for the sake of argument that I’m not willing to do a clean install, but must do an upgrade install. Because I’m not.

Excuse me, I need to go stare at my screensaver for a while now.
