Lately I've been saving up the money to build a computer myself. But my aunt and uncle used this guy who lives around here who builds them and he gave them a really good deal and i'm thinking of just using him instead. From what my aunt and uncle told me he built them a pc with some of the following specs.
3.0 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 Processer
1 gig of ram (the original build had 512mb of ram but my uncle is very good at haggling and the man added a gig of ram for 40 bucks)
80 gig hardrive
256 mb video card (pretty sure its a ATI)
My uncle traded him a old E-Machines desktop (900 mhz processor, 128 mb of ram, 20 gig hardrive) i used to have and $200.
the fellow was selling the build for $450 (without monitor). I'm going to check out my aunts and uncles PC and if it looks good i may use him, the only thing i want to change is use a Core 2 Duo processor and maybe add another gig of ram (and i thought of using Vista Home Premium as the OS insted of XP but i don't know if i should or not, what's yall's thoughts?)
any help would be appreceaited!
