Hi I have just managed to get £300 into my new PC fund and I am too impatient to wait much longer. I am currently running a 7 year old pc: 500mhz cpu, 128mb RAM, 8mb shared graphics, with win 2000 and ubuntu linux, 20GB hard drive. I am currently torn between building a pc or getting a mac mini. If i build my own pc within a few months i can get a amd 3000+ sempron or 3000+ 64bit athlon, 512mb RAM, 256MB radion graphics card, dvd+/- drive, 80GB hard drive.
If i get the sempron I can get the graphics card if the athlon not.
I am currently drawn towards building my own for compattability and expandabillity. I do do alot of video editing on my dads PC as mine is too slow and i have heard that macs are great for image and video manipulation.
What are your opinions of what i intend to do and dose anyone know If it would be fine just slaping my 20GB hard drive in the new pc with win 2000 on it and continuing as normal until i can afford win XP.
