How much did it set you back?

$800 USD after rebates. I already had the video and sound card in my other computer so I'll just pull them out and install tonight. Not a bad deal at all... not to mention they gave me a free printer too... (which I didn't need.)

Thats £415, not a bad price. Not an amazingly good one but not bad.

Sweet system & deal....to add a little performance.....take it up to Gig of Ram (2x 512mb).

You think a gig of RAM would make that much of a difference...
12-29-2004, 03:23 PM #11
...for the money I find Ram is more of the more cost effective performace enhancers (Pun intended....lol)

That one is a gateway. I wouldnt normally buy a gateway, but it was my friends who was lookin to get rid of it because it had been infected and he couldnt get it to work and got fed up and bought a new one. So he sold me a 1+gig pent 4 for $100. So i put a 250 meg vid card and 1 gig ram in it to use for gaming. I got (2) 256 megs or rambus on ebay for like $130. Ive seen (1) 256 meg go for like $100!
