Hi - I need to buy a new PC to replace my ageing Mesh. I've been really happy with the Mesh, but like me, it's getting old and slow :-(. Will probably keep old monitor so need base unit and maybe keyboard/mouse. Am not that knowledgeable on the interior workings of a PC so need some help in what to get.
Main use is internet/office etc (not gaming). I am happy to pay for good spec, but obviously don't want to buy something I don't need. So I guess I want the best possible to suit my needs - I don't want "budget". I have no specific budget.
Spec of current PC is : Processor Intel P4 3.0Ghz Memory 512Mb PC3200 DDR 400 Mhz Motherboard Asus P4S533-VM FSB 533/400 Hard Drive 120Gb 8Mb buffer 7200rpm Video Card 256MB nVIDIA GeForce FX5600se Optical Drive 16XDVD-Rom + 52x CDRW Sound - Soundblaster compatible multi channel audio speakers Creative soundblaster SBS250 Monitor - 17" Sharp DVI That lot cost be about £1200 about 6 years ago.
So really what I want to know is "what is the rough equivalent spec now compared to that from 6 years ago?"
