Hi, A few months back i asked about decent build PCs and some specced me out a decent one but times have changed and last night my old PC finally died. I'm not 100% certain what exactly happened i was just sitting there watching the latest episode of 24 and some wierd blue screen came up with a load of writing on...long story short...it starts up but wont even boot in safe mode or load the Windows Setup from CD both hang quite early in the process. While I am thinking of one or two things that it may be (which I'll try and fix tonight when i get home) I think its time for a simple upgrade/newPC. there are a couple of components that i only purchased within that last year or so which I'd like to keep. They are 120GB HDD (Though I wouldn't mind at least another 80GB) and a 128MB ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (I think thats the exact model). Oh and a NEC DVD-RW (that does DL and 16x). At the moment I'm thinking of either buy a Barebones PC and installing the above with a New CPU and new RAM (Don't think I'm Missing much). Or buying the seperate components. All I'm asking for mainly is some advise as to whether to go Barebones or seperate components? Also am i right in thinking that a Barebones system is just hte case and MotherBoard? Any system spec suggestions would be much appreciated. Many Thanks in advance for any help/advice provided. [Edit] Forgot to mention I'm trying to do this as cheap as possible because I've just been made redundant and aint guaranteed the income after June!
