is that what you looking for Blind.

And where I got the Processor from??

The guy I purchased the PC from gave me the Number of his freind that helped him build the system and that guy is a hole seller and gave it to me at cost and said he would install it for free


And they say chivalry is dead...

He offered this before I invited them to my 800 acer hunting land next weekend all payed for by me .I feel its the least I can do

Hi there and a belated welcome to CTH.

I think you made a good choice to upgrade the CPU rather than the GPU. There are a few better video cards out there but your bottleneck was the P4.

The PSU should still cope but if you start adding additional drives or a meatier GPU (say a dual GPU card) then you'll probably need to consider something heavier.
