Upgrade: Broadband and PC

  blackstorm2k 16:18 09 May 2004

Firstly, my area is about to be broadband enabled within the next 2 months. I am looking for a decent ISP who are well priced and provide a decent service. I want a 512Kbps connection so am looking to pay around £25 a month. Can anyone recommend any good ISPs to me?

Secondly, I want to upgrade my PC. I am looking at a Chieftec Dragon Midi Tower Case, Intel D865 (Bayfield) motherboard, P4 3000Mhz processor, 512MB DDR 400Mhz RAM & XFX Geforce FX 5900 XT. The rest of the components I'm taking from my existing PC. I want to know what suppliers I can buy these parts from, and who are cheap & reliable. I ordered a couple of parts once from 'Insight' who, on both occasions sent me faulty parts that I had to send back. I don't want to make the same mistake again!

Wanadoo and Tiscali, are both good providers.

For the Broadband, you could try the PlusNet 512Kbps service at £21.99 a month, which is the one I am also using and thus no problems with them so far after beong their customer for nearly a year.

As for your computer components, you could try places like Ebuyer, Scan, Overclockers, just to name a few. I completely built my PC from stratch buying everything from Ebuyer and never had a problem with it.

Pipex have been very good for me over the past year, and many friends rave about Plus.net as well.

click here is very good for a comparison of the various providers.

Whilst nazimulali suggests Tiscali, I would suggest looking at this and other forums for other peoples experiences before signing up with them.
