Is time for a new workstation...

Now, I had to write 3 papers in 2 weeks time. My laptop is slow and not that convenient for doing long hours work and I'm getting myself a workstation. I don't have a student room or was given any "working" workstation to work with in my lab, except the gel-doc which I have to wear gloves all the time to do check my emails. There is one workstation which is ~10 years old now and I hardly make it work for me. I had to purchase a new one and set up in this weekend. But then, money is still an issue to me.I'm not sure whether I had made a right decision to DIY a workstation with the specs below:PHENOM II X6 1055T 125WG-BYTE 890GPA-UD3HKingston Hyper-X DDR3 1600 KHX1600C9D3K2 4GBDVD-RW 24X SATA Samsung1TB 64MB (BLACK) 6GB/S WDCool master 650W GX (A/80+)THERMALTAKE V4 BLACK EDITIONI just barely afford to purchase it... Perhaps I can get some donations from anyone?
