It apears that the only change you made was the videocard. Is that so?

Seeing as how is this is a budget box, does that mean no floppy drive to install drivers for our SATA HDD?  If so, seriously, then how do I install the drivers without a floppy drive?

Unless you are going to set up the system drive in RAID (not enough drives for RAID in suggested config), you don't need a floppy drive to load the drivers.

 

Thank you for your service to our country.

I know that if it had Vista as it's OS then you could use USB to install drivers, but they are using XP so I don't know.

the list says that you should buy a 8800gts 512, but you have a picture of a 4870, the 4870 is way faster than the 8800gts 512

sorry if it's not clear. the 8800gts was the part recommended when we ran the original story back in the April issue. the 4870 is what we're recommending now. cheers.
