I have decided to update my system which is a Dell Dimension 2400 system, now 8 years old.
The local computer shop has a desktop with the following specification
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition AM3 Socket Processor ( 3.20Ghz)
4GB DDR3 RAM Memory
500GB SATA Hard Drive Storage
ASUS AM3 M4A78LT-M LE Motherboard
Palit 1GB GEF GTS 450 PCI-Express
7.1 Onboard Soundcard
Sony 24X 7240S DVD Writer
Sony DVD-ROM 16X Reader
CIT 1007 PC Case
600 watt power supply.
Is this a reasonable system for £344? Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit will cost an extra £77.
