Default Re: Girlfriends build

what are you going to use for the operating system? that would be an extra cost if you forgot to add it in your plans.

ok,,if it was vista then 2gb ram would have been much better, but your probably just fine with 1gb if using xp if you want to keep the cost down.

DOn't install the Dell drivers though. If I know Dell, their CDs are all System Restore discs, drivers discs, and other software you probably don't need. If you can weed out the Windows XP install files on there, then you can use just that. Otherwise, install a fresh copy of Windows using a separate CD if you have one.

No, Dell has separate resource CDs for their pc's, this is ONLY windows.

Hey boyfriend, So I read through all of this and whatever you want to do is fine, you know the lingo, unlike me. Now you get to explain it all to me. Fun? Well, I want to learn. Thanks for your help guys.
