That’s right! I have managed to get my hands on a Dell Dimension C521 for nothing! I am well and truly a genious! It will need a LOT of upgrading before I can start gaming with it as only has the onboard graphics and only 512MB of RAM not to mention the puny power supply, it will cost me at least £150 to get it to a mediocre state, but i can expect to pay up to £300 – £400 overall to get it up to scratch with the latest consoles :p The best thing about it is that i get to play Phantasy star online again! 122 more words
