Looks nice, but I'm not quite sure what advice you're after. Boasting, yes, which is fine (I've been known to do it myself) but advice? You've spent the dosh. Enjoy it - it looks like a nice system.

I suppose my only comment would be that I would have sat tight for a bit and waited for an affordable DX10 card rather than spend money on a card that's on the verge of being obsolete.

KateB- thats the type of advice I am after. I will upgrading again in the future and need to know what will be obsolete soon and what will be worth investing in. Thanks KateB Ill keep that in mind :-)

It looks far superior to mine,so what can do you do with it?

  cassius.uk 16:39 20 Jan 07

Thats a good point!, it makes a good cup of tea! lol ;-).

Im just getting into computers and like a system that can, possible, keep up with developments (at least until direct x 10 comes out).

When direct x 10 comes out I might get the nvida geforce 8 series or something more affordable.

Looks similar to one I'm planning to build - except I might use AMD instead of Intel, I haven't really decided yet. It should do the job for most tasks you need to do with it. It should also easily handle Vista if you want to upgrade to it later on.

cassius.uk, My seven year old computer will get me on the internet, type a letter in "word" and save my digital camera pics, play music, and do my internet banking. I'm 65, am I missing something? Hey, I make a cracking cup of tea without a computer. Dont Know how to do the laughing bit

true - but can brag about its specifications, and wallow in satisfaction about how much more powerful than everyone elses PC is?
