You may want to start a topic in the system building and upgrading section of the forum, you might get more responses there if you're looking to replace a PC. Given the specs of your bedroom PC, almost any new PC will be a step up from what you currently have.
I want to upgrade for better audio, but my XP is great now thru my Insignia HT. I may replace my bedroom PC, an Acer acerpower SV, intel pentium 4 cpu, 756mb RAM, 80 gig HD. Opinions??

Mine has had a few days now... and what happens, it runs great for the first bit, then if I leave the computer for like 20 minutes or so, when I come back, everything is slow, CPU is running at 100% and the only thing I can do to get it to respond, is shut down and restart. This started happening since installing SP1. When I am actively using the computer, everything works great. Very fast, no lag, etc. Any ideas? I used to have this problem with the dfrgntfs program, which I do not now, but I don't think I have that on here anymore either?
If your PC seems to be running slow after installing vista sp1, don't fret, this is normal. Prior to the update, vista's superfetch feature had built up a host of user specific optimizations that improve performance with the applications you use regularly.
During the sp1 installation process however, The superfetch data is cleared from the pc. To regain the performance optimizations, simply use the pc as you would normally. It should pick up a in a couple of hours or days.
