    I think your graphics are letting down your system. So you want all your storage to be on flash memory or something.

    bittorrent. it's a file sharing protocol without all the problems that kazaa has, like viruses and corrupt files. I swear by it.

    I was being sarcastic about the graphics as I never play games. Solid state is protential faster than hard drives because its not machenanical. However at around £15 for 128MB this would be extremely expensive at the moment.

    hehe the most fun computer I ever had other than my C64 was a Laptop I bought for £15, I sold it to my college lecturer who was a proper hard core geek for £20 though.

    It had a 386 processor and 640K RAM!! It was lovely little dos machine.
