Nice to 'read' another Dane. The Seimes PC is probably an OK computer, but you will get a better deal if you buy your computer from a 'real' computer shop as <a href="http://www.shg.dk/shg.htm
They let you choose your own components and their prices are competitive, especially with brand name computers. They sell computers too all of Denmark and is well respected.
Gå ind under produkter og saml selv. Vælg en AMD Duron/Thunderbird computer. Du kan også ringe eller maile dem hvis ikke du kan lide at bruge deres noget besværlige system på hjemmesiden.
If youre only going to use it for your net bank then a 1 GHz Duron will do nicely enough!
My suggestions are as following:
Motherboard: MSI MS-673 K7n420 Pro it is a Nvidia MB and very stable, it comes with a GF2 MX, LAN and high quality sound built in. I believe there is even a TV-Out extension to put into your AGP port, this of course if you dont upgrade to a better video card. Upgrades its BIOS automatically from the net!
CD-RW Lite-ON, 24/10/40, a nice CDRW, burns every thing at 24 speed! Have one myself and love it.
DVD; if so I recommend the Lite-On x16.
CPU; 1 GHz Duron or the XP1600+/XP1700+ for games.
Floppy (Disk drev): Panasonic/Sony doesnt matter
Harddisk: Seagate Barracuda 60 GB (nice!)
Video Card: None (there is a GF2 MX built in) or a Palit Daytona GF3 Ti200 for games (these overclock to almost GF3 Ti500 level) Cheap too - with TV-Out I belive, maybe even DVI for a LCD screen.
Dont buy any IDE controllers
Speakers find one you like at shg or your local shop.
Cabinets are a matter of taste so I will let you pick one your self, you proberbly need to do some investigation on the net at the manufactures. I always choose a cheap one. A 300 watt powersupply is a must though. Dont choose a desktop cabinet as they tend to get hotter and are harder to work with if and when you choose to upgrade something.
Cooler: Dont know any of them, but the Molex with the thermostat seems nice at 249,-, talk to the shop on the phone to find one thats good for the CPU and find one at the noise level which you can stand.
Sound card; none, the soundcard thats built in the mother board is at least as good as anything Creative makes.
LAN: Built in the mother board again.
RAM: 2x256mb Kingston or Apacer DDR 2100 PC266. Prices are almost the same, Apacer is a bit cheaper. You will need the ram to be in to blocks to make the MSI mother board fly and use the onboard Gf2 MX. Win XP like at least 256 MB and loves 512 MB - choose 512 MB. You will need to call the store and specify your order as you cant choose two blocks of Ram on the webpage ask about the heat sink at the same time.
Mice and Keyboard is a personal choice and can be bought anywhere.
Assembly: Yes please
With everything DVD, XP1700 and the GF3 Ti200 it comes to 9909,-. (Cheap if you ask me)
7140,- with a 1 GHz Duron, no video card upgrade or DVD
I am almost sure that the Seimens comes with SD ram and not DDR ram and it is probably still more expensive.
This machine built only from high quality components and I dont think the same can be said for the siemens pc.
I choose the Aashima Maxitower (549,-) for this calculation there are no mice, keyboard or speaker included in this example.
