I'd like to put together a spare PC based on good performance/price ratio of components\ne.g. XP2000+ would be quite adequate. I've not bought any components since I built my\ncurrent machine about 15 months ago so am not aware of todays bargains/must-haves.\n\nI'd be grateful for any aired opinions on what the package might consist of and what a\nball park figure for components might be. It'd be useful too if my main HDD would be\ntransportable between the 2 machines. Would that inevitably mean a large measure of\ncorrespondence between components?\ncurrently:-\nXP2000+\nasus a7v333\ngforce 2 mx100 (i know, I know, but I won't be doing any gaming)\n\nand the usual miscellany of bits and bobs.\n\nMaybe it would be cost effective to just go for the same again?
