Use opera as a browser, the webpage zoom feature saves lives. (mine is permanently set to 120%)
Damn, I am on WSXGA+ and have a problem sometimes...how do you manage with this resolution?

As Rehaan mentioned, use Opera for your surfing needs. You can magnify page views by default. Mine is set to 150%

Wow. I plan to upgrade my Graphics card soon. BTW your HDD is ATA or SATA. I find SATA almost twice as fast since I have both.

Are you sure it is 64 bit?

Mine is almost same config as yours, but it is 32 bit. I think 64 bit came with Athlon XP 2800+ and above... (correct me if i am wrong though)...

@Techno, just loved your machine configuration.

Made me remember my old programming days, when I had a Sun Blade workstation with 4 CPU, 2 (or 4?) GB RAM, some 90+GB hard disks, 21 inches monitor and to top it all, it had a SUNpci card, which meant a full Windows machine running inside my workstation. (Used to do some CAD modelling stuff). How do you like that?

And yes, my home PC is seriously outdated and I am too ashamed to list its configuration. Must be one of the most lowly configured box.
