Default I've been offered a PC

Right, here's the deal.

One of my friends has offered me his old PC (1.5 years) for £150.

AMD Sempron 2.0GHz
80GB Hard Disk
ATI Radeon 9550 256MB Graphics card

I know the processor is the weak link there but it's still better than the 1GHz Pentium 3 I have. So do you guys think it's a good deal? I think it's brilliant.

From upgrading from a Pentium III, that build will be like night and day for you.


See Wii. See Wii run. See Wii blow all the other consoles out of the water!

Good to hear. And I know the RAM and HD could be an easy upgrade down the line if I felt like it.
