yaesu,you would be better off buying a new computer,you don't say what operating system you have,XP would be included plus Gaurentee.Paddy

tnx paddy75, yes but for about £160? I have w2000 which works for me, and would initially keep the hd and display.

The RAM in your present system would not transfer to the new bits.

You could also have a look at click here built one a couple of weeks ago and so far the owner is delighted with it, did buy a new hard drive though as the older hard drives are slower and it only cost £40 more, the rest of the stuff came from his old PC, monitor, speakers, mouse and cdrom. He also took the opportunity to get XP home OEM £60 more.
