I wanted to hear what people thought of my new computer.

It has yet to be collected as its currently being built, so i dont know what its going to be like. I imagine it will be quite fast...

Its a:

3.2Ghrtz
200 GB Hard Disk
1 GB RAM
16 Speed DVD/RW (Dual)
Pentium 4 Processor
128MB G Force Graphic card
Midi Tower Case
Windows XP - Proffessional

I think thats about it.

It costed around £700 for the CPU. I wondered if i have done not too badly considering the spec?

Looks like its going to be a nice machine. £700 for the CPU is a bit steep in my opinion, but as its Intel, it doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

What GPU is included and is the HDD SATA or EIDE ?

USB/Firewire ?

I just realised i put in 200GB Hard Drive when infact it is a 300GB. It was originally going to be 200 but we changed it to 300GB. So it should last longer and should be a fast machine. Its estimated at being around 10 times faster than the fastest machine we have here. I cannot wait to see it!

As for all you asked Enigma, i really dont know. I know about computers, just not about that. :oops:

Thanks for the input though!

Sorry, its office use.

The computer we are replacing it with is about 5-6 years old and there is nearly nothing working on it. The fan is playing up, so it overheats and crashes and the computer takes around 5-10 minutes to load up (seriously). I cannot wait to see this new machine, it sounds as if its going to be faster.

I dont think it would really matter either way if its office or home. Maybe somebody might be able to let me know why this would make a difference?

I dont know how much it is in american dollars, but I have one with the exact specs( exept for the video card mine is ATI and it has MCE OS)
and it cost me close to $3000, so I guess you got a pretty good deal in there

Well, the computer I have at my desk at work is a 3.2ghz P4. The guy next to me has a 1ghz Celeron. I can seriously see no difference between the two performace wise. This is because all the computers are used for is Outlook, Internet Explorer, Office, Adobe Reader, all low end applications. The point is if you are going to buy a new computer for an office enviroment, it might be more beneficial getting 2 new mid range computers than one brand new one.

I can see what you mean Lucassix.

We got the computer about an hour ago and have set it up and it is, well, VERY fast :)

I cannot believe it, it takes about 30 seconds for it to load up. The fastest machine i have ever seen to be honest.

The machine will be used for outlook express for storing emails, but it will also be used for many big programs and storing alot of files. It should last a few years without problems i am sure.
