I believe HD is ide: Maxtor D740X-6L 80GB HDD Review - PCSTATS.com
video: ATI all in wonder 9600XT
I'd use it for a wide variety of things:
30% Games: WC3, WOW and others
40% Multimedia: personal video editing, photo editing
20% office stuff: power point, word, excel, online schooling etc...
10% TV and music play back
MULTITASKING is key.
Will obviously need a new comp soon...have been putting it off. would like to revive this one as a backup comp in office or for kids/wife. Therefore would like a few more years out of it.
So it is a general concesus that something like the PC CHIPS M848A (V5.0) is a better bet than spending similar dollars on a used ASUS, abit or epox through ebay? to be honest i didn't even think they still make socket A boards, went straight to ebay. tnks
