This is the right place. :) Back on the old board we had a a good thread going about this topic.

Believe it or not my computers like six or seven years old. I'm still running on a 1.5GHz Athlon processor. :D But to make up for that it has a Raptor hard drive and 2 gigs of memory.

My computers getting tired and needs to be retired asap. It should have been retired like two years ago. The problem is money as in I never have any extra to build myself a new one. I don't see in the near future having any either. So what I was thinking about doing is just buying something like an old Dell XPS and upgrading it a bit to use as my main computer. It would cost in the area of $350 and be comparable spec wise to yours.

This is the most cost effective way in which I can get a "new" computer. Although if I did do that it would feel weird to me. The reason being is it would be the first main computer i've ever had that I didn't build from scratch.

well, the hard part about buildin your own is, sure, once you finish a decent-priced computer, by within the next few months or years u'll find yourself upgrading the graphics card or the sound card and its very fustrating spending so much money when you know 2-3 years from then, your computer (pc) would be considered rape toward any computers built at that present time........if you know what i mean? :-

Thats another reason why I haven't even attempted to save any kind of money to build myself a new one. The main thing I use a computer for is internet and music. A ten year old computer can do that. So I figure why go nuts unloading money on one when cheapies suite my needs me just fine. ;D

Oh yes definitely. For example in the seven years i've had this computer I think i've upgraded the video card two or three times. The only parts that are still original are the power supply, hard drive and motherboard. Everything else has been changed at one point or another. Either due to upgrading or because of failure.  :)
