Well I don't have the info for my computer here at work. But here is what I can remember off hand. It is a gateway computer that I bought 6 or 7 years ago. It has a 933MHz amd processor not sure which one. I think I have 3 256 memory cards in it. it has a 3 or 4 year old video card in it. I think 64mb I know that I need to post all the actual specs. And I will in the am. But I thought maybe due to age I would be better off just starting over. The only thing I know is worth keeping is my hd which is 180g 7200 rpm deal. And my dvd drive. Still need a burner. Basically I plan on buying a new mobo, cpu and video card. Oh obviously memory. Since I am pretty sure mine isn't DDR. So if I can get any Suggestions on a good MOBO, CPU and memory Combo. I would like to keep it under 500$. Preferably includeing video card. I would find all the parts myself. But I don't know enough about compatability. What it will be used for is probably your next question. I would like it to play games. It obviously won't be a super star but I would like to play the latest and greatest games with minimal problems. I am not a huge gamer but do enjoy playing them. Well hope that is enough info I will post the specs of my pc when I get home from work. If somebody wants to post the link to the program that will tell me all that info if not I am going to go search for it right know I have seen it just don't remember where. It is kind of sad that my lap top blows my desk top out of the water. :hotbounce Thanks in advance, Dominic Now that I know that I need to start from scratch lets say close to five hundred I am not completely set at this price.
