Need help with upgrading
OK, here my plan...
Things I have:
80 gig hdd, cd-rw, keyboard, mouse, moniter, speakers, headphones, case and soundcard.
My main parts (which I have):
Socket A motherboard supporting AMD XP athlon and AMD (32) Sempron, Semrpon 2200+ (1500mhz, but seems to be 900mhz by system checking programs) and a geforce FX 5200.
Things I would like to upgrade to (on a budget):
) ASRock K8VM890 VIA K8M890 CE Socket 754 DDR400 Motherboard with Video, PCI-Ex16, Serial-ATA, RAID & LAN (Micro ATX) - this is $99
) Nvidia Geforce 6600gt 256 mb - this is $211.99
) AMD Sempron (64bit) 3000+ overclocked with proffesional heatsink 450mhz, to make it a sempron 3600+ - this is $123
Altogether it's $434 AU.
I have a few issues I'd like you to attend to.
1) I have Windows XP sp2 academic editon, I want to switch it from my 10 gig extra drive to my main 80 gig drive., is this possible?
2) Does it matter whether I get a 6600gt 128, or should I get the 256?
3) Can I clear my 80 gig hdd completely, put windows on and install sound drivers, graphic drivers later?
Thanks, hope you can ansa some stuff for me.
