Tobi

I've donated my computer (involuntarily) to an affirmative shopping effort at my house on Thursday last week.

I need to replace it- I would have about 8K back from insurance- any ideas on what I should get?

Danke

E.R.

Well if if you dont like overclocking I would recommend..

A PIII-450,

64 or 128mb of RAM

MSI MS-6163 motherboard (Or Gigabyte BX-2000 or Gigabyte GA-6VXE+)
Gigabyte GA-660 Plus Graphics card

6.4 to 13gb Quamtum Fireball CX HDD

Generic CD-ROM (40 to 48x)

Diamond Monster Sound MX300 or SB Live! Value or Genius Sound Maker LIVE

MAG XJ530 (15") or XJ796 (17") Monitor or LG SN-775 (17")

Any keyboard and mouse.

That is the PC spec I would recommend.

As to where to get it from..where do you live?

Hmmm...

Can you get those components yourself?
Maybe I should put you in contact with my Company....but this is a BAD time to buy stuff as almost all the suppliers shut down from this week till the 1st/2nd week of January!

Also my poor secretary will have a fit when you give her that list of components..I doubt she's ever heard of a TNT2 and we only supplier Intel stuff to our corporate clients. (But trust me, you DONT want a Seattle or Cape Cod m/b.....!)

If you are interested I can e-mail you further...

Tobi!

Preciate the offer, but thanks, I have the guy that built my previous machine working on it now, and I will have to wait what he comes up with (using your specs)- The Saitek Cyborg 3D is pricing over R1000 now!

Enjoy your holiday!

E.R.

No problem at all....

I'm flattered you use my specs...:-)

Enjoy your holiday AND your new PC! (Which is now faster than mine...dammit!)

Cheers!
