Hello all Many years back I built my current pc, Athlon 64 3200 754, 6800gt AGP, 2Gb ram, gigabyte mobo. Since then I've not kept up with new parts so am completely out of the loop as whats new and good. My pc is starting to show its age and is frustratingly slow even after fresh install of XP. I dont play games much any more but do use photo shop CS3 a lot and it just isn't up to the task. I have £300-350 to spend on new parts, Im only after a mother board, processor and RAM at the moment but want to be able to add a GFX card and more RAM at a later stange. I Am planning on re-using my hard drives, disc drives, case and PSU. Im after 4Gb of ram at the moment but would like to up-grade to 8Gb in the future, and also add a half decent GFX card, though this is not essential at the moment as I only really play half-life 2 once or twice a month but would like to play new games in the future. The pc will mostly be used for photoshop, internet and watching movies. I would like to up-grade to windows 7. When I built my current pc i bought an OEM copy of XP, Can I get the upgrade version of windows 7? as its a bit cheaper than the retial. I quickly spected this bundle from another pc, Is this a good buy? or could I get much better. I chose AMD as thats what I currently have but dont mind going with intel if I can get more bang for bucks.
