Purchasing new system
Hi all! I'm a semi-newb in the puter world... First post wahoO!
I have an outdated system and am looking to get a new one. Until 1/5/05 a Dell Dimension 3000 can be had with
P4 3.0/800FSB/1MB cache with HT
512 MB SDRAM
80 GB Hard Drive
CDRW and DVD-ROM
Mouse and Keyboard
for $408. This is hella deal I think. Only problem is integrated sound and graphics. Has the Intel Integrated Extreme Graphics 2. It has no AGP slot. Also no Firewire or IEE 1394 but I don't think I'll need that?
I will get a DVD burner to put in, mainly for backing up DVD discs. So from the dvd-rom i can copy directly I believe. Is this correct? Where I can copy a whole movie on one disc no problems?
Anyways I don't play games hardly anymore (mainly because current system). The last game I was into was Diablo 2, I loved that game. If I got into games again, how would this computer run them? Is a PCI graphics card an option, I don't know how efficient they are.
Your help is MUCH appreciated thank you everyone!
