Hi I've come into a tiny bit of money and have decided to upgrade my system.

At present I have got:

64bit 2800 sempron
1gb of pc2700
2x80gb sata drives
1 dvd writer
6600gt 128mb nvidia

Im looking at changing the mobo, processor and ram for these

Ram http://www.ebuyer.co.../product/091124

Cpu http://www.ebuyer.co.../product/112704

Mobo http://www.ebuyer.co.../product/124950

I choose the mobo because I've got a agp card at present but will be able to upgrade later to pci-e

So what do you think for the build and total price (around 230GBP).

Are you planning to upgrade to Vista in the future? If so then that system is fine with the exception of the graphic card, you can find real cheap ones that can better handle Vista. But if you are sticking with XP I would get less ram and a better processor.

THIS will be better but a little more expensive, for the price its worth it. I wish they were that cheap here in Canada.

THIS is a good price for a good brand name for memory.

right after a lot of conflicting advice I have come up with this

http://www.ebuyer.co.../product/114745

and

http://www.ebuyer.co.../product/112706

That means I dont get the new ram which was

http://www.ebuyer.co.../product/091124

so that means I keep my

6600gt
1x512mb 3200
1x512mb 2700
and my sata drive and dvd drives

Is this better than my first plan at the top of the post.

Thanks

Do you by any chance know if the 6600gt is an AGP or a PCI-E graphic card then I can tell you if those stuff are compatible. By the way nice find. I didn'y know you're budget so I just picked one with the right price. That should be a nice and fast processor.
