Hi Everyone,

I just bought a new computer for $520. These are the stats: ASUS P5PE-VM s 775, Intel Celeron 3.2GHz, 512MB DDR PC400, 80GB harddrive, 18x DVD+/-RW, black case, monitor, XP

Is it any good, was my price ok :thumbsup: ?

Thanks

Jan

Yeah, Jan6, your topic is here in General Topics, General Chat.

I haven't compared what you have to some of the latest systems at the local stores, so I'm not sure how it may stack up, dollar for dollar.

Also, without knowing what video card it has, it will also be difficult to compare it to other new systems.

I would suggest adding some RAM to it - you'll no doubt notice a speed difference if you run it with 1G of RAM.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

What OS do you have ? If vista I recommend at least 2 gig, for XP one gig the old rule applies whatever M$ says, multiply by four!

If you are running XP, and are just planning on doing some surfing, e-mailing and playing the odd game, the system you have is probably sufficient.
You have room enough to add programs/utilities so long as they are not resource hogs.

Heck, $520. bought you several years of entertainment....
Can't go wrong with that! :thumbsup:
