Hi
I am looking to upgrade my motherboard/processor/ram etc

I have seen many motherboard kits around but am not sure if it is better to buy a kit or to buy the components individually.

Any recommendations would be welcome. Thanks

Depends upon the components you buy. However check if you have an OEM windows licence sticker if you do you will need a new copy of XP also so it may prove quite expensive.

This really depend upon what you intend to do with the PC, is it for gaming, office applications, etc.

Bundles are ok and can work out cheaper, but individual componets offer more flexibility. You will need to ensure that separate components are albl to fit the motherboard...

i mainly use it for gaming, office, and internet.

i currently have 1GHz AMD processor K7S5a motherboard and 512DDR RAM AGP Nvidia graphics card

my budget is around £150

I would ideally like atleast a 2GHz processor and 1Gb ram.
