That hp still dosn't beat MY old HP:

1.7ghz celeron
128mb shared pc2100 ddr266 ram
onboard intel extreme graphics
onboard sound
only pci slots

God that thing sucked. I tried to play UT2003 on it. I later upgraded it to 384mb of ram and a pci 9200se.

Well, if you've got the $190, even though the others are right, about saving money and building a new system... you could always look at it as a learning experience. Which is worth a lot more then $190, IMO.

Do it! It's not very much money for the knowledge you get out of it.

I've changed some things but i have a question about the PSU and mobo. the PSU (come with case) has a 24-pin main power connector and the mobo only has a 20-pin will it work if i just have the other 4 pins just hanging off the side?

updated parts.

XION solaris w/450w PSU

ECP 648FX-A2 mobo


thermaltake TR2TT CPU fan

512mb kingston value RAM 1gb total (ill finally be able to run at Pc3200 speeds)

i just need this to last me until about september and it's more of a birthday gift from my dad and not really my money so it's either this or nothing, so i think im gonna go with this.

oh and 1 more question do you think this will be able to play oblivion on all low settings? i dont mind them all being on low cause that's what i run my games on now.
