"My PC runs so slow, I think its time I bought a new one"
"I need to buy a new PC to play the latest games, mine's too old !"
"When browsing the Internet, web pages take a long time to display"
I don't have enough memory or hard disk space, I need to buy a PC with a larger capacity"

Ever found yourself saying any of the above and thinking of buying a new PC ?

Please, think again ...

Most Problems can be resolved with additional memory or hard drives. Are you aware you could actually add another hard drive from as little as 40* and an extra 1gb of memory from as little as 20* ? Just how much were you going to spend on that new PC ?

Glad you dropped by now ? ..
