I have a Pentium 4 2ghz cpu, a Nvidia MX 200 64 mb graphics card, 256 Ram (Dont know what type of RAM) 120 gb of Hardware Space. IF you can help please tell me what to do. Im stumped

    I go one to the site. I click on all that BS they get you to go through to find the right drivers. Download the 18.6 mb of ****. Thyen when the setup comes up it says there are no compatable drivers.

    did you remove the old driver first before installing the updated one you downloaded ?

    Dont worry. I found out today that my Graphics Card is not compatable with OpenGl. Thats why it hasn't been workin. I will just have to get a new graphics card. Thanx anyway for your help

    Definetly do, the Mx200 is ancient, DX7 i think. If your computer came with it it must be quite old so im not sure about your upgrade possibilities. Check the Motherboard manual for AGP slot speed(2x,4x,8x) or, downlod CPU-ID and google the motherboard name. By the age of the card youl be lucky to have 8x, you may have 4x (Radeon 9000, 9200, Geforce Ti 422, Fx 5200). An 8x card will run in a 4x, itl just be slower. If its 2x, bad luck, youd be better off getting a new motherboard

    Unfortunatly, unless you look really hard, your not going to find a motherboard for your processor. If youve got mony to burn, check out the mid/hight range buying guide on techspot. If youre strapped for cash, heres a good mix. I.ve included vat (if your in Britain) prices from www.overclockers.co.uk

    Case, if your current case is ok for you ignore this.
    There are cheaper ones, bu this is a particularly high quality one
    Coolermaster Wave Master - Silver (No PSU) £99.88

    Enermax Noisetaker 370W EG375AX-VE(G) SFMA ATX2.0 PSU £41.07
    Gigabyte 7VT600P-RZ (Socket A) Motherboard £32.02
    AMD Athlon "Barton" XP3000+ 333FSB £88.19
    Akasa AK-827 Ultra Quiet Copper Base CPU Cooler £7.16
    PowerColor ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB DDR TV-Out/DVI (AGP) £107.44
    Western Digital Caviar Special Edition 250GB £99.98
    2x GeIL 512MB PC3200 Value CAS2.5 £66.98

    your hard drive size is fine, just it wont be compatible with the motherboard. Keyboard, sound card and modem you can use from your current, but you may want to get a keyboard vacumn, i think their about a tenner and plug into the USB port and clean your keyboard of filth

    Overall price- £542.62

    Its a cracking mix, and you can sell your old one, or use it for work or whaterver you want to use it for
