Default FS: Upgraded Hp Pavillion a630n, 2.8ghz, 1gb, 250gb HD

Hi all, I went and built myself a new computer with the "assurance" that my buddy would buy my "old" one (its only a year-ish old). Well he backed out saying he had no money, probably due to the new iTouch he has, jerk.

Here are the official specs:

HP Pavilion a630n Desktop PC*-* Product Specifications*

I have made the following upgrades:

- Additional 512MB of Ram (1GB total)
- Intel cooler from e6750 (copper core, much bigger, better self-adjusting fan)
- WD caviar SE 16MB 250GB HD (still under 2+ years warranty)
- Scythe mini-kaze 40mm fan on NB chipset

Additional upgrades I could do:

- Upgrade onboard sound to Creative SB Audigy 2 $20
- Upgrade to AC7 pro CPU cooler and AC MX-2 TIM $20
- Upgrade onboard video to ATI x800 XL $70
- 15" Philips CRT monitor, mouse and keyboard, $30

I am looking for $250, which I think is fair as it has a valid XP home liscence and is a good solid PC, would be perfect for a WOW machine with the Vid card upgrade.

If I am way off on what this is worth, please PM me.

I know I said I would put the pix up earlier, I swear I will! My wife is pregnant with our first and I keep "forgetting" (I swear she doesn't even mention it out loud) about all these classes and appointments every night...

This weekend for sure, SORRY
