i have been using a pc for a while now and have decided its time for something better. i have become interested in building a computer for my self but i thourght as a beginner it would be better to upgrade the one i have to start with, but i could do with some advice.
i have a very basic pc at present, hp pavilion a708 uk with intel celeron d 330, 80 gb HD, sis real256 graphics. i would like to overhaul the lot. i want to play good modern games,heavy office use,store music and general internet usage. is my mother board suitable for good upgrades? i suspect it is not so i need one that will take my current components but have plenty of scope for upgrades as i want to do it gradually due to cash flow. i would appreciate any advice as i am keen to learn.
