Tried to replace the default case fan for my new PC and only succeeded in ruining the screws. Fuck. Guess I'm gonna have an LED fan after all. Hopefully it won't be too noisy.

I had the idea to pull my existing HD out of my current PC and stick that in, so I could continue to boot Windows off of it with my old data intact. Is this possible? Will Windows shit itself if it finds itself on a system with a different mobo & processor? I'd like to find out BEFORE I try it myself.

Whatever happens, I'm going to back up my data first. BTW, anybody have any suggestions on that front? I was looking at FireWire external drives and they were crazy expensive. USB drives aren'tall that much cheaper, either. Seems like a big waste for something I'd probably only use twice (once to copy all of my data, once to copy that data onto my new machine). I don't have a DVD-R drive, and I have waaaaay too much data (a nearly full 80GB drive; my documents & settings folder contains over 56GB) to just burn a bunch of CDs.
