    it is quite a budget upgrade.

    but it should be a big jump from current system.

    amd k6-2 500
    256mb ram
    vodoo 3 2000

    basic spec there.

    but i use my laptop all the time coz the computers so crap.

    it&#39;s quite the cliché, but you&#39;re getting a lot for the money there
    you&#39;re ending up with a very good spec computer for not a lot of money (not that i have to tell you that )

    i know, thats what i was looking for really, i wasnt gonna spend say £65 on a throughbred when i could get a barton for £74 wanted it cheap, and good value for money. and to go pretty good aswell.
