I haven’t posted in a few days, mostly because I’m seriously in D.A.W.-land. I went over to the studio the other day to build the computer, and was utterly flummoxed by the first curve ball.
You see, I have two older AGP video cards. They are AGP 2x. But lo and behold, my new motherboard is only compatible with AGP 4x or higher. I thought, erroneously, that AGP=AGP. But sadly it is not the case.
I discovered this at about 4:45pm, and the only place that had a cheap video card for me was at least a half hour away, and closed at 5pm. Doh!
So now, I get to wait until Monday to get the video card and then head back to the studio to try again.
