Hey everyone, I'm currently running: Athlon XP3000+ MSI K7N2 Delta 1gb DDR3200 Crucial A whole load of IDE hard drives Windows XP Pro SP2 My question is, is this worth it: http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/pcrange.html?ISM Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 4MB Cache Dual Core 64 BitProcessor 2048MB 667MHz DDR2 Ram 500GB Serial ATA II Hard Drive nVidia 8600GTS 256MB PCI-E Graphics 16x Dual Layer +R/-R/RW DVD burner Intel 946GZ Chipset MicroATX Motherboard Motherboard Realtek 7.1 High Definition Audio Gigabit LAN Windows Vista Ultimate Or should I build my own? From what I've seen financially I gain very little from building it myself using the same components. SO, should I change the spec slightly and build it myself, perhaps with a little input from here as to different motherboards, graphics cards etc, should I buy that one or should I wait a while until there's better on the market for a similar price? Ideally I'd like to use that company too because of the 0% finance. I'm broke at the moment so can't really spring a load in one shot. Mine currently does everything I want, but it is getting a little old, and my dad needs an upgrade so I would swap this for his, buy him a copy of Vista Home Premium for it, take his old one and use it as an internal server with my IDE drives. Oh, and the intention is for quite a lot of gaming, a fair bit of media applications and general use too. Thanks everyone, I've completely lost touch with the technological world and really don't know what's good or not!
