Hi all I need to upgrade my PC. I usually purchase my PC Base unit complete from reliable online stores like Mesh Computers esp since these places know how to match the componets in order to get a stable system and can get the individual quality parts cheaply. But they tend to be a little dear esp if all I want is an upgrade. My requirment is : Mother Board / Athlon XP 3200 / 1G or 512 Ram I have researched online and found the Abit Motherboard to be the best for the price £46 : http://www.microdirect.co.uk/ProductInfo.aspx?ProductID=5853&GroupID=527 and a SATA high speed drive : http://www.dabs.com/uk/channels/components/harddiskdrives/internalide/productView.htm?quicklinx=3GNS I need my PC for : Photoshop,playing dvds,mp3 playback,making dvds movies of home videos, etc so its used quite heavily. Id like to start a discussion on what would be the combination to get the best out of my system. What ram should I use? Where should i buy these components? I was thinking ofdabs & Microdirect What do you advice? The last thing i want to do is buy another slighty costly base unit only to find I could have done it cheap myself. Dell... eww yukk. Pls advise.
