this is Windows XP Pro

ASUS A7N8X Deluxe ACPI BIOS Rev 1007, 10/8/2003

AMD Athlon XP 2400+ Thoroughbred

2GB Corsair XMS

Silvestone SST-ST60F (600watt)

CHENMING CMUI-601AEBL-W Blue (without side fan)

Used mainly for minor Photoshop, pic/movie storage, same old skool gaming (GhostRecon/RainbowSix/HL2) and hasn't received any love since building a second pc.

Just curious what upgrade could be further added or leave it as is.

I may build another PC (April 08---depends on tax return)...may try to learn watercooling (if anyone in Chicago is available to give hands-on tutorial)

Question:

Should I give this old workhorse a new heatsink fan or is case at least a prime candidate for future H20 cooling?

Advance thanks

Not to bad of a pc except the processor.

It maxes as this processor

Athlon XP 3200+(400 MHz FSB)(Model 10)(Barton)

So your upgrade is limited by your board.

I would say... it would make an ok game server....

or something for older games

Sell it and use the money for the new pc.

Did you get an AMD Athlon 3200+ processor for your system yet Corporal Ledanek?

no...both my arms are being twisted by folks to switch to Ubuntu instead :rofl:

I dropped $50 into my "Ground Branch" jar, $27 to my "COD4" jar, and the rest of my pennies towards my "next upgrade" jar.

I did invest in a newer case...I made it big enough in case my wife kicks me out, I have a case big enough to fit it :whistle:

And your $1700 HDTV/ps3 jar as well. Led has some money to burn. I take paypal if interested in the "help feed dporter's kids foundation".
