Help needed with budget upgrade please!
I have around 250 pounds(around $450) to spend on an upgrade kits with the following requirements:
Gd quality PSU (500+ Watts I guess)
PCI-E motherboard with onboard graphics, but with future support for Direct X 10 GFX cards
At least 1GB RAM (2GB if the budget can support it)
And lastly either an A64 or one of these new dual-core AMDs.
Is it better to get a dual core CPU or to save money and get more RAM with the extra money?
Also a couple of other questions, is it possible using current PCI TV cards to watch one channel whilst recording another?
Also, will any upgrade I do now be fully compatible with Windows MCE2005 and Windows Vista?
Thanks for any advice
