He doesn't play games on his PC - he's got every other games console going! But, he said that maybe he'd like to play games if his system was capable of it! Can't see it myself, but you never know.
He's got an 80gig internal hard drive and a 320gig external hard drive (which isn't being recognised by the computer at all just now after he tried putting a hub in but that's a whole new story!).
I reckon I could probably put all the bits in - I've only done my memory and added a DVD writer to mine but many years ago (in the days of the 486!!) I did built a PC from scratch so I possibly could do it. The guy at the shop I priced that upgrade bundle at said they'd do the build for 20 quid but obviously if I don't get all the bits from them, they might not do that.
Any advice greatfully received. I don't understand why his computer has got slower and slower - I've cleared out as much junk software as possible and I know his memory is pretty poor at the moment but even mine wasn't as slow as his when I only had 512 memory.
I did look at AMD but the guy in the shop said that Intel was better - and I do know that there are pro's and cons for both - am I right in thinking that one is better for games while the other for web and general applications?
I was also going to reformat his internal hard drive and reinstall windows (xp home edition) to try and start it all from scratch - he's had more viruses that I've had to get rid of than anybody I know! I believe he's virus free just now but I thought a new start would be a good way to go.
