How much will that set you back though ?
It all looks good minues the Windows Media Center Edition but I noticed you are going to be moving onto the Vista Upgrade, thats good. Looks good by me.

I would skimp out on the ram and hard drive, dell over charges for both.
just under £1300 deliverd . only reason i selected media center is because the the vista upgrade ;)

am just sorting out finances before i order it, prob tomorrow.

currently have an 80GB hardrive + have looooads of free space, even with all the pr0n on it :eek:
Could always spring for a 200GB external Maxtor One Touch III - I believe it's around $125 from Dell.
Ram slots are totaly ****ed, the clips have broken. i did have a tempory fix in place but thats no good either now :(
nah, it's had 3+ years of hard abuse :p
We don't want to hear it! :s :p

Just gone and built myself a new dual core shuttle pc, well cool and only cost me "just" shy of £800. :D
Nice, very nice! And has been said you can always just get an external HDD if needs be.

Rush - when are you coming to Norwich?! You keep saying next time, next time, but you never tell me! :dead:
Boo-yeah. Come to the Golden Star on the corner of Duke Street and Colegate for a quick drink.
That's the weekend before my birthday, too. :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
