Yes, you're Dell 8250 is dated, its time to move on. Understand, you'll won't be able to re-use the XP OS as that's Dell suited only.
Goto these and others for pricing and what's available:
Any of the other OEM type websites, like Dell, HP, Gateway, etc.. Beware, mot new systems are Vista loaded. If you go custom, XP is still optionable or buy your own disc.
Well to start us off, Hi I'm Will. (okay now that thats over)
I own a DELL dimension 8250 Desktop from ....... 2001? Anyways, the ram in this PC is outdated, for those who want to know what it is it's Rambus ram. Not only that but with my dell, and many others im sure, my sound card is an integrated sound card. Not putting dell down or anything, I mean i like this dell and all, but I do some multimedia stuff, and right here lately it's just not cutting it. So with all this being said. I feel I must upgrade PC's, I like XP and I want to keep it, so a custom build is a must for me. I want some opinions on what to get, recommendations rather. So feel free to link me to things and all .......
