    Is this the PC you were building in another thread? If not, what are it's specs?

    No My old computer crashed any was trying to fix it for a while. I then started looking into getting a new one.
    Anyways they are:

    Windows XP Service Pack 2
    AmD Phenom 8400
    ATA 320 GB HDD
    nVidia GeForce 8600
    3 GB DDR2 Dual Channel (can't find the brand name)
    Thermaltake TR2 RX 450pp

    Retail PC
    Not overclocked or anything

    Okay. Nothing wrong with getting a new PC and using the old one as a backup. You will have to test some parts by swapping known good ones in or testing your parts in another PC. Do you have access to one for this purpose? Perhaps a friends older PC?
