I have a similar system, and it's good for gaming and general use.

Firstly, you don't mention how large the PSU is?

Also your OS "Windows XP 32Bit" will not recognize all of the 4GB memory I have 4GB and it will only recognize 3.2gb

And lastly, your MB does not support SLI, which would be a cheap upgrade solution when required.

Other than that I can see no problems.
How much are you paying and from whom?


sorry it always misses the price off, i am paying Total £636.25 i dont know about the PSU so what motherboard do you reccomend?

Both XP Home and Pro should recognise up to 4GB of memory.

Thanks I know all about the /PAE switch which does work but affects performance. Which I don't want.

Thanks anyway though.
