I want to upgrade my computer to this. How does this look?

Intel Pentium 4 processor at 3.20GHz w/ 800FSB

512MB Dual Channel DDR SDRAM at 400MHz

80GB Ultra ATA Hard Drive


Could anyone tell me offhand how much this would be (including an upgrade to XP)? And is there anything else I should get upgraded?

Bump the RAM up to a gig if you can afford it.

Check for good prices.

Bump the RAM up to gig? What does that mean?

Instead of 512mb of RAM, get 1GB ... 2 sticks of 512mb.
I don't know what kind of RAM your machine takes, but is selling it for between $75-109 per stick.
Makes a huge difference in the computer's operation, especially if you like video games & other memory-heavy apps.

Check for great prices from one reliable place. Or check for even better prices from many different places. 512mb of RAM should be plenty for just bout everything....What mobo are you using?

I agree with Banshee... Get a Gig of Ram. Here are the prices:

Intel Pentium 4/ 3.2C GHz 800MHz FSB, 512K Cache, Hyper Threading Technology - Retail ---> $289

Western Digital Special Edition 80GB 7200RPM IDE Hard Drive, Model WD800JB, OEM Drive Only ---> $71

Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Platinum Series (Twin Pack) 184 Pin 1GB(512MBx2) - Retail ---> $259

SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 9800PRO Video Card, 128MB DDR, 256-bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP -RETAIL ---> $225

TOTAL w/o Shipping = $ 844.00

Thats what I would buy if I were making that upgrade. All prices are from the BEST store for computer parts!!

Hope this helps.
