I have Dells Dimension E310. I want to use the case, and just buy new parts. Can I do this? Will it work? Also if it does what parts would work well with it (Mobo, PSU) ? I want to build me a pretty cheap, but powerful system for gaming.
I wouldn't try to use the old Dell case since Dell sometimes uses non-standard motherboard sizes and a new case can be had for cheap. We could help you optimize a build for your intended use and budget if you fill in all the information found in the "How to ask for new build advice" sticky at the top of the forum.
What do you mean? Do you already have an OS? New systems perform best with 64-bit Windows 7, but i suppose you could use an older OS if you already have the install disks. You can't use your Dell disks, though. I think the $100 is well spent on 64-bit Windows 7 for a new system.
Yea, i'll just do that, i'll buy windows 7. I have some pretty old stuff lol.
One more thing. I have wireless internet. Right now i think I have netgear, and I get no signal most of the time or its very low. Whats a good wireless card I can put in my system so it'll get amazing signal?
