I'm new to computers and as you can tell by my name I have a Compaq. It's my first computer and it cost me about $500.
AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 333FSB
960MB Kingston ValueRAM (2x512 PC2700 upgraded from 1x128)
80GB Samsung hard drive (the main partition is actually about 65GB)
Onboard video using 64mb from the RAM (that's why my RAM is 960MB)
USB2.0 and FireWire
IO Magic Dual Format 8X DVDRW with 7-in-1 card reader (black faceplate as opposed to the white one of my Emprex combo drive)
Emprex 52x24x52x16x combo drive and built in 7-in-1 card reader
Windows XP Home
The mobo says A78VX-LA
I bought a Western Digital 200GB hard drive that I want to add, but I was told I can't just plug it in and then turn on the computer. What I wanted to do was copy and paste the contents of my 80GB to the new 200GB but my computer saavy friend just laughed and said it's more complicated than that. He said I need to buy Norton Ghost.
