He probably means:
A) Its Intel
B)Its Albatron.

Which is OK, not complete rubbish.

By upgrading what do you mean? Your HDD looks OK to me, you could just chnage the MB, CPU, and graphics card.

And get AMD this time. :D

that's through. The PSU needs a change as well as I work 8-5 5days and just like to have a super quiet machine, the motherboard, the ..... so I thought to just change the lot? The graphics card I have just installed as I changed to a 24" screen.
What motherboard would you get(I do not game at all!) And CPU?

It might pay to say what your computer is used for if you don't play games.

Did you read my post?
"What someone is willing to pay"
I could sell that machine 10 times over for a grand, maybe even to you, seeing as you seem to have quite a few 'accidents' with yours :)
