I have a P3 800 MHz, 128 Mb Ram, ~ 6 yr old system.
I now plan to dispose of it and am dreaming of building a new system from scratch. My previous system was assembled by my friend whose help I can no longer take as he has shifted.
But, the problem is I am really on a shoestring budget say of ~ $ 500-550.
Can I go for a dual core processor, which mobo, goes with what, I'm a newbie.
I would be using this system for surfing the net, downloading images, clips, mpeg files, my wife would be using it as an entertainment pc and my 2yr old son as a toy.
Could you guys help me out, please.
