I'd like to thank everyone whom replied to my posts. Basically i'd like to say to all those still using the phone line to connect to the internet . try and find some other way to connect to the internet. if your pc is 8 yrs old or older consider the posters suggestion to start saving up for the next generation PC.
right now or within a few weeks or more all the older models on the market will be lowering their prices. because the next generation processor will be the hot item to have. And they will want to deplete their inventory so they can stock the new stuff coming out.
It's too bad they don't make a universal mother board with removable parts so one could just buy the hardware they need and plug the latest stuff on the board. While you can buy some parts. The older motherboards aren't compatible with the latest technology. you might get away with limited upgrades. But after 5 or 6 yrs most of the stuff on the market today won't work with the older PC's.
Another thing is if you have a descent monitor mouse and keyboard you don't have to buy a whole new system unless you want one, you can just buy the PC box and plug you stuff into it.
Also there are places on the internet you can go to where they will build your dream machine. This can be pricey especially if you want the latest technology. Most desktop users don't need all that unless they are heavy into gaming or photo/video storage and editing.
my buddy tells me they even have liquid cooled cabinets. I said wow that would be great except for if it ever sprung a leak. LOL
