So, I just ordered this to upgrade my current Celeron 300 / Voodoo2 accelerated system (ughhh) last night. It's basically a new case, dual Athlon MP 2200's, 1 Gb DDR 333mhz ram, and a Chaintech GF4-TI4600 128 MB Video card.

I've been wearing down my wife for about a year to let me get a new system and I finally succeeded. I'm using my other hardware from my old system.

So will this basically blow me away and will it work for me for a while? My last rendering of a sparkplug took 1.5 days, so I'm guessing it'll be heaven on earth, but would you consider it a
1. powerful system
2. very powerful system
3. monster
4. POS
??

Did I pay too much/ too little?

Thanx for your input.
