I would recommend installing your existing drive as a slave drive, Install a fresh version of XP on the new drive and copy any necessary files over from the old drive.
Using your old drive as primary could lead to problems with hardware drivers etc and a fresh install gets rid of all the accumulated crap anyway.

I think the rule is that things can't be reposted until (roughly) a month is up. The last time this was posted here is just under a month, which might explain why the one yesterday was removed ... depends how strict the mods are being I suppose

Onboard graphics card not much use for games?
#10
if i added a decent gfx card (lets say one worth around £100) could i have a nice little gaming machine?
#11
I found a review of the machine in witch the guy states he bought one and used a ATI 4670

£50ish gfx card and he can run crysis on high detail @ 25 fps, not bad at all..

You can build it for less yourself using components from the website & choose quality parts.

This all seems pretty familiar :whistling:

Mine arrived yesterday and aside from a pretty audible PSU fan it's all good. The motherboard is a Foxconn-G31MX-k, the case is the usual black/silver cheapy affair with the addition of 2x usb & mic/headphone sockets on the top front along with a slide shut door for the 2x 3.5" bays (I've put a card reader in one of them, connected via the remaining spare motherboard USB header). The keyboard & mouse are unbranded black jobbies, the mouse is optical. Both are PS/2 (I think, I've not taken them out of the box).
The box contains the PC, power cable, keyboard & mouse in their own little box and a Foxconn driver CD.

Having gone for the supersaver (5 working day) delivery, it was shipped within 18 hours of ordering and arrived a day later. Top service so far!

I put windows 7 64 RC on last night and all hardware was picked up and auto-installed without issue.

A bargain indeed!

I followed the link but it said the cart was empty. I am interested in your recomendations regarding hardware as I want a system for the kids at a similar sort of price. I have OS and monitor btw.

The hard drive in my current PC has been used in three different PCs and I have never had any problems. In each case I've just placed it into the computer and Windows has asked for the new drivers for the new motherboard (which will come on a CD with the new computer) and it has worked without any hassles. You will probably have to re-register XP via the internet, but I've never had problems with that either even though I been using a genuine OEM copy of XP!

At the moment, the core 2 duos seem to be the pick of the bunch processor wise, so at your budget pick out a bottom-end c2d such as the E7400 or the E7600.

If you have a few more quid to spend (about £20 to £30 more) then the Q8200 and the Q8400 are both good buys, having four cores instead of two (although they use more power and generate more heat)

If you're *not* looking to build a PC for games, then I'd get an intel G41 based board (should cost less than £50 and have a cheap graphics chip built in)

If you *are* looking at a budget gaming rig, then take an intel P45 based board, and buy a half decent graphics card... At the moment the Radeon HD4850s can be had for around the £80 mark, or to save a few quid a geforce 9600GT for £60-£65 - although please note that graphics cards are not my forte, and others might be able to find you a really good bargain here.

For RAM just take 4 gigabytes of any branded (corsair, kingston, crucial etc) memory, the 1066Mhz stuff isn't too much more expensive than the 800Mhz these days, so you may as well spend the extra £5 on it.

Hard disks are much of a muchness, but keep an eye on drive warranties, some manufacturers are 1 year and some are 5 - for much the same prices... Samsung deserve a special mention for making their drives a little more quiet than the others too.

Any old dvd burner should do fine

I was going to recommend picking one of the cheaper antec cases that come with a relatively reliable PSU, but I can't seem to find any... It looks like coolermaster have some equivalent models but I've never used one.

All in, you should be looking at something around the £250 mark for a non-gaming PC, and a shade over £300 for a low-end gamer.

Maybe but I wouldn't bet on it. If both motherboard chipsets are the same type you have a much better chance of this working. Windows often doesn't like it if you change the whole computer under it.

This would definitely not run crysis smoothly on anywhere near the top details. Even graphics cards that cost you £200+ struggle with crysis on max.

I agree with that. Although I think you'd spend a bit more and build a better rig.

Would this deal give you a HD resolution as I've got an HD monitor?

Sorry to dissapoint you mate, I have this machine with a Asus 4670 and it runs Crysis completely fine on High settings. I'll post some screens up for you if you want. Runs at 30fps on average with the real lifesis mod.
#26
Got this PC when it was around £220and i'm very pleased, wasn't worried about no OS as I dont like Vista and put XP onto it:)

Only niggle is the PSU is noisey. But like my previous PC i'm just going to swap it out for a quiter version.
#27
Mmm Another Good Deal How Many Usb Ports ??? JUST LOOKED AT SPECS 6 USB PORTS NICE
#28
Just to let you know... a mate of mine installed OS X on this machine successfully with a tiny bit of fiddling. Everything seems to be working. Needs a bit more fiddling to get full resolution on the display. Networking and sound both seem to work too. Ace!
