Re: $AU700 Upgrade
OK, I've ordered the Q6600. The fact that all you (helpful) people are able to debate/argue over them, proves to me that they are all (for me) very similar and are all viable options.
So my final order was a...
2GB Corsair 1066MHz RAM
Corsair VX-450 Power Supply
Thank you for all your help.
On another note, someone told me today that OEM Windows is licensed to the motherboard. I have OEM Windows XP on my soon-to-be-upgraded computer and I intend on keeping the hard drive. Since I am changing the motherboard, does this mean that Windows will not recognise my computer as being licensed?
Also, I have a really old/bad computer (5 year old Celeron, 512MB RAM, GeForce4) that I plan on adding my AMD 3500+, old Motherboard and old RAM to. However its hard drive is a IDE hard drive, and the motherboard only supports SATA. Is there some sort of adapter I can buy that I can simply plug my hard drive in one side and my motherboard in the other and they'll all play nice?
