Given I picked up a complete P3 1GHz 128MB RAM, 20GB HD and CDROM for $149 from compgeeks.com you want to research very carefully what you do spend on any under 1GHz box.
I took the above, added 128MB RAM, finished off the Windows 2000 install (it also came with Windows 2000!), popped in a DVDROM drive and the DVD player software and my nephew is very happy with that. Cheap too.
kid pc, Micron, PII 450MHz, 256Ram, 13.5GB Ultra ATA-33 HD, 512K int L2.2ndary Cache, 32bit local bus, etc. I am wondering is it worth upgrading? Clearly out of HD space and needs OS upgrade from 98. Kids want for school and games. At min needs larger HD, but what about CPU/MotherB? Couple hundred max I want to pay for parts. Suggestions? Do it? if so, advice?
