View Full Version : Building Basic System

15-04-2002, 09:29 AM
As an upcoming pensioner with limited funds I wanted to build a basic computor 600-800 MHz,CdRom,HD.FDD+various cards, I also wanted to use my existing Win3.1+Win95 upgrade to keep cost down and match 2 others on my LAN.
I was advised that I could not use my software on the new system...is that correct?

you could still use win95 but it would be better to go to win98se.

Do not buy anything below 800mhz unless it is second hand, or at a cheaper price as the slowest CPU that Intel and AMD make now are 800

I was talking to my boss today and he says that the slowest chips now that he can buy from AMD and Intel are a Duron 1000 and a Celeron 1100.

PS Celeron suck

Thank you fir your reply.
I would like to go to Win98SE but it seems to me that I would have to buy the full size programme would you agrree.
I am also curious about the Win98SE upgrade...as a student I could get the discounted price but they put the student sticker over the upgrade sticker and I'm concerned about it being some sort of reduced version...would you know?
