Re: $500 Xmas build for Dad
Peter, the build that Ste put together does not include an OS or a case. With those included, it is still around 500 bucks. I am not trying to be rude but what is wrong with my suggestions?
One reason is once I get the new system built, I would like to sell the old system. I know I couldn't get much for it.
Another reason I don't reuse the hard drives is because the hard drive that has the OS on it, Windows would have to be reinstalled, right? Every time he reinstalls Windows, there is a program called PCDart that gives him fits when he tries to restore the information.
I realize that even if I buy new hard drives, I will still have to install Windows and go through recovering the information from PCDart. But I want to do it once and not have to reinstall for a while.
Now I wouldn't mind reusing the optical drives since he doesn't use them that much.
