Ok i'm thinking of upgrading BOTH of my current pcs, looking at a budget of around 900euros, £600
PC1:
Dell-P4 2.8 ghz
Windows XP
512ddr (2*256)
60gbs hd
Geforce MX440(!)

PC2:
AMD Athlon 1Ghz
Windows ME
128 SDRam
20gbs hd
Geforce MX200 or something stupid(!!)

upgrades i was thinking of:
PC1: another 2*256 ddr ram

new graphics card
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=GX-050-LT&NOLOGIN=1


PC2: new motherboard
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=MB-092-AS&NOLOGIN=1
new processor
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=CP-053-IN&NOLOGIN=1
new ram
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=MY-037-CR&NOLOGIN=1
new hard drive
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=HD-005-WD&NOLOGIN=1
new graphics card
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=GX-050-LT&NOLOGIN=1
new operating system
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=OS-001-MS&NOLOGIN=1

If i'm not a complete nub this would make them both roughly the same spec could anyone who knows anything about PC's have a look at the parts i suggested? any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Edit: key points that i'm not sure about are:
- if Dell systems support 4 ram cards
- and if so would the ram i have listed here work with the ram (probably different brand already with my Dell
- if existing sound card/other things on pc 2 will be compatable with new motherboard given how old it is
- if all the stuff is compatable
- if Bahu really knows anything about computers at all
- if anyone in the world would be stupid enough to buy a used MX440 :)
- and i just realized i haven't added anything for cooling :(

Now why would you buy a new operating system? Just install the one you have on the other one. XP cdkeys aint like DAoC keys, they can be shared. I got mine of a internet site that said 500+ people had allready downloaded it.
