    hi dombenson, thanks for the info i'll check the prices and buy one of them, but first of all can i have your advice on a suitable mother board and processor i know from your message that i need a dual core Socket-AM2 processor but can you advice me on which model or brand is best and will i need to buy them first before i buy a case so that i know if they fit basicly can you telll me which components (brands ) i will need to buy to have a good preforming pc where i can do more then one thing at a time (even 3 or 4 things) i dont mind paying extra but it just means it will take me a bit longer but worth it in the end, i hope you can understand what im trying to achive many thanks in advance :beer:

    hi dombenson thanks for your quick reply everything what you have said sounds great, i had checked the radeon X1800XL and it's a bit to expensive for me and i have been looking at the Gforse range of cards (i know they are not as good) but for there price they will suit me better can you recomend one of those to me?

    hi dombenson first of all many thanks for your reply but sorry for not getting back sooner had a few problems with my pc ( but all sorted now) as to your question of how much to spend i have no fixed amount in my mind (even roughly) im prepared to spend what ever it takes to get a high performance pc but i will have to do it gradually may be even for 3 months (fixed income only) so what i hope to end up with is a pc which can handel all types of multi media but can be upgraded as time goes on ie basicly a new pc so i guess the first piece of equipment to start of is the shell so any advice on that would be very welcome many tanks

    thanks dickster for your prompt reply first of all i want the quickest and most powerfull pc money can buy but being serious what i found with my present pc is that if i try to do more then two things at teh same time my cpu is maxed out i just want to be able to do more then one or two things at the same time, i will be mainly using it for multi media (films music surfing downloading) as for cost i wont be able to buy everything in one go it will be spread out over several weeks so even if i get advice on what to buy rather keep you haning on as i get the funds together it would be great if you could give me some recomendations on what two buy starting with the shel. as i said before im a bit of a novice but eager to learn so any advice would be very welcome hope to hear form you soon.

    first of all let me express my thanks to the kind people who answered my question (sorry i have not got back to you sooner but if been away on holiday) so the impression i get form your responses is that i need to rebuild my pc. this is something im prepared to do but not being very savvy with computers im willing to give it a go because im keen to learn a lot more about them, but if someone is willing to advise and take me through the steps you will definitely be on my xmas card list. it might be to much for someone to do it through this forum and i will understand, but as i said im unhappy with the performance of my pc and im willing to start form scratch to rebuild it i would be very greatfull for any responses on this subject. and once again im sorry for taking so long to reply. keep up the good work and by the way my pc is a dell demension 1100 (cheap end of the marked)
  12. hi members, i have been using pc pitstop for some time now and i must say everyone should use it (but this is the first time for the forum) my question is which i hope someone will be able to advice me i would like to up-grade my pc (but it is on the cheap end of the scale) here are the specs Intel® Celeron® CPU 2.53GHz 1200 ram memory Storage Drive Type Drive Size Total Available Space Used Space C: NTFS 71.44Gb 52.09Gb 19.35Gb Hardware Type Description DVD/CD-ROM Drives SONY DVD RW DW-G121A USB Device SONY CDRWDVD CRX310EE GW5204F ICP031Z SCSI CdRom Device Disk Drives HDS728080PLAT20 74.50Gb Lexmark USB Mass Storage USB Device Display Adapters Intel® 82865G Graphics Controller 96Mb Floppy Disk Drives (Standard floppy disk drives) Floppy disk drive IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers Intel® 82801EB Ultra ATA Storage Controllers Primary IDE Channel Secondary IDE Channel Keyboards USB Human Interface Device USB Human Interface Device Mice and Other Pointing Devices HID-compliant mouse Monitors Plug and Play Monitor - (Standard monitor types) Sound Devices Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio USB Controllers Intel® 82801EB USB Universal Host Controller - 24D2 Intel® 82801EB USB Universal Host Controller - 24D4 Intel® 82801EB USB Universal Host Controller - 24DE Intel® 82801EB USB2 Enhanced Host Controller - 24DD hope i have not confused people with all these details i want to up-grade the graphic and sound and i know im limited in my choice (pci add on cards) is it worth up-grading these or should i start with the motherboard first? any advice would be very welcome many thanks in advance
