    if its only for word processing why not just leave it as it is. Xp2000 would be fine for that. Maybe stick another 256Mb Ram in it though.

    oh rite, fair enough then

    If you want to run some decent games it will need a better GFX card but apart from that it looks a nice system.

    The NF-7S comes with one S-ATA cable, and the Maxtor drive has a molex power connector, so you won't need the converter.

    I'm not to keen on on-board graphics, thanks for the suggestion.

    Well I chickened out in the end on this upgrade, took a look at my bank balance and it needs some rest.
