  1. first post is edited with thankyous for answers to original question.......

     

    i got a final question (probably not, but it is for now ;) )

     

    will i be okay running a Sapphire Radeon X1650 PRO 256MB with a 250w ps?

    i know not much about this.....

    Go to http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculator.jsp And plug in your system components. It will tell you how big of a PSU you need to run stably :)

    You can't get any better than custom built. I found a sweet deal on 2 gigs or ddr2-800 corsair memory. This stuff is amazing gaming RAM. http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetai...25-5&ps=ho1

    You save $30 from the Newegg price. Don't have much experience with other gaming comp parts since my system is a rehabilitated dell (I wanna kill myself for buying from them 2 years ago). Good luck building your son's comp. You may get too attached to it and want to keep it for yourself :)


  3. I had exact same problem reinstalling XP on my comp. I tried installing 5 or 6 times with the xp disk that came with my dell (it has been upgraded so much it isn't a dell anymore). It turned out it was a weak and dying Power supply. Go to http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculator.jsp and plug in your system config to get how many watts your power supply needs. Chances are if it's a dell computer your power supply was too weak to begin with.


  4. I can't tell anything from that picture. There is a much easier way to take a screenshot. In the upper-right corner of your keyboard there is a button that says print screen over system requirements. Press this button and it takes a screenshot. Now open a paint document and press ctrl+v to paste it in.
