it all depends, i usually add at least a cd copier and 80gb hdd, plus new case not more than £50, usually only cost about £50-£100 in the first place and i sell them for between £150-£250 depending on how good you make it, i make it better than computer shops would for less but still make sure i get paid at the end

bush is an idoit who just uses his "war against terrorism" as a weapon in the election. certain rumors say that the whole 9/11 incident was organized by the government in order to get more power to control and monitor people and secure their own position and plans.
