looks nice does newegg ship to the uk and is it any cheaper or do u know any cheaper places to buy from cause i dont know if i will have enough money i think i might buy 1gb of ram insted to upgrade later and have a 1.8 ghz dual core insted because there shouldnt be too much difference running xp which i will be running on it. this computer doesnt need to be too good because i will use me laptop to 85% of the time so wa u think ????
btw this computer will probably be running for 24hours a day so it need to stay as cool as possible without makin it too expensive
hi ye ty, atm tht ram is out of stock but i aint ordering yet so tht aint a problem unless it gets discontinued any way i might go for this processor
but i was thinkin would this still be okay
is tht a gd cooling case or do u think a cheaper one would do just as well it doesnt have to look amazing as long as it is black to match the dvd drive?
ye iv seen tht case befor but i dont understand ow the dvd tht u can see works does any drive fit there ?
i think i will go for this
and will tht fit on the mother board cause tht has 4 pin connectors on it doesnt it ?
if i go with ur chose do u think it would be a gd idea to get 2 120mm blue led fans and put them on the side one as intake one as exaust wa do u think of these only thing with them i dont know wa bearings it has
doesnt seem as tho u can see the fan space at the front so i will go for these like u sed
heres me cart do u think anything needs changin or addin or not needed:danraksmile:
