i'm looking at buying a compaq refurbished base unit from pc world
click here
i was just wondering if anybody here has any experience of them. it's just for general use and it is to replace my 2nd hand dell xps gen4. it has pentium 4 [3ghz] chip, 3gb memory and a geforce 6800 graphics card. i put a 500gb hard drive in and it has been running windows 7 rc. i will upgrade the compaq to w7.
i was contemplating upgrading the motherboard and chip in the dell or if anybody has any other suggestions for units i will gladly hear them.
