Hi, new to the forums
. Have a few questions.
I have had the same laptop for about 4 years. A P4 2.4ghz, 1gig ram, geforce 420 go 32mb (yep 32mb! Hehe)
I have never tried to build my own desktop computer but I assume I can. Is it all just snapping things together and screws? No soldering and such I hope? No special tools?
Well I have a low budget, approx $600. A friend will give me his old 19inch crt monitor.
Also I have a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 6Y120P0 120GB Ultra ATA/133 7200RPM Hard Drive w/8MB Buffer. Its about 2 years old. Don’t know much about HDs but I assume its ok enough for a new system for starters? Its currently being used as an external storage with an enclosure.
I want a nice base system, something I can build off of over time. I can live with an ok-low end vid card, as long as I can put a nice one in later with no problems. Really anything is an improvement off of what I have now. I play WoW and have hopes to play Warhammer when it comes out.
Stupid question but… do you “have” to buy windows? No way to use an old disc? I would rather not waste 100 bucks
