Moving out of a shared house where one super computer was used. Dragged my 4yr old comp out of the loft last night and saw it had a MISERABLE 733mhz, 256mb ram and 20gb HD (11 of which is taken up with Windows XP and other essential software. I have around 5gb of photos and another 20gb to move. Looked at external HD but for £60-£80 it seems the money may be better spent on a new cheap, but still able to run modern games, computer base unit. My old one is empty of software but very very very slow.
I have been told to go for at least 80gb hd (poss 160gb), 2ghz processor and 1024ram if I want to run reasonably modern, low spec, games and make do for around 3-4 yrs.
Can anyone advise as to whether this is any good? Dell is a minefield and I need one before the end of next week!http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/331495/art/packard-bell/imedia-1559.html
