Macbeth the Usurper

Cat

Oddly, the cat slept with the wife last night. This delighted the wife.

The cat also went down to visit Jen as she worked on Joy's Halloween costume. We all know about cats and sewing. He proceeded to "help" her in her sewing.

So ... sew (hehehe) ... some good mommy-cat and furry-child bonding happened.

Parts Order

I've got my parts order in. I chose to downgrade from the 3-core AMD processer to a 2-core processor. That saved me $40 and 30 watts. I'm going for a quiet PC. Watts=Heat=Fans=Noise.

In a few days, I should have my parts.

My main question remaining: does AMD include a stock CPU fan? I think so.

Once I get it together, I should have a better idea of its noise level.
