Specs: Windows XP, 2.8 GHz Dual Core 3G.B. DDR2 RAM
Iam curious just how obsolete or not my PC is ? I tried posting this ? in the hardware section however it kept giving me a error notice and closing down the browser ? Anyway my Dell XPS400 is a 2.8GHz Dual Core Proccessor w/3G.B. of DDR PC5300 RAM a Samsung 250G.B. Hard Drive 7200rpm 8 M.B.cache, it has an ATI PCI-E Graphics card and also an ATI TV Tuner Card Elite ! THe O/S is WindowsXP Pro SP2 MCE 2005 . For the display I have a 19" flat Panel ,for the sound it has the 7.1 Stigma-Tel intergrated sound ,I have two sattlelite speakers and one subwofer to compliment the sound which preforms very well . It has two DVD drives one a DVD-ROM the other a DVD,dual layer burner that covers just about all formats and I have the software ,Sonic My DVD Plus ! You may be scratching your head woundering why Iam giving you all this info about my PC . Iam just curious as to just how out of date this PC is ,or would it still be considered a good system . I know a duo2 processor is much better ,however this Dual Core seems to work very well ,and the system is very stable,I also have DEll printer AIO 944 and a 16 in 1 in one Memorey card reader, a 7 port USB Hub 2.0 plus the tower has five USB plugs already on it, a Logitech gaming keyboard w/ all backlite keys ,and a Logitech Web Cam and a high end microphone ! Any replies would be greatly appreciated !
Thank You ,Nick

Sounds like a nice setup. As always, it depends on what you use your computer for. I'm still running an old athlon 3700+ single core processor with 2 gigs of ram and it works fine for what I need to do. You have to watch all the hype about the latest and greatest. I don't think people in general use anywhere near the full potential of their machines. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. IMHO.

Three excellent points made by grasshopper:

1. You have to watch all the hype about the latest and greatest.
2. I don't think people in general use anywhere near the full potential of their machines.
3. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

The only thing that needs clarification are which ATI PCI-E Graphics card do you have & what do you primarily use the system for?

THank you for the replies to my ?'s about my system . Iam guessing by question "The only thing that needs clarification are which ATI PCI-E Graphics card do you have & what do you primarily use the system for?" Its a ATI PCI-E x16-X300SE 128 M.B. Mem. graphics card ,not a top of the line graphics card ,however I really do not play any games on this PC use mostly for internet browsing and typing up and printing documents . This Graphics card is a low level ATI card that I bought from Dell for $130 ,which I found out was much to high to pay for this card . Again thanks for the input ,I stilll do love my PC ,graphics card and all !
Take Care Nick
