Then once I've scrounged that dosh in and called in a few debts I'll order the stuff at the mo ebuyer will cost me:
XP1600+, 8K3A, FDD, 2XRounded ATA133 and 1X rounded floppy all for £140 (free postage as its over £100) and also £27 or something for 128@pc2700 from not sure if I want to pay double to get 256mb. TOTAL COST: £170-ish
If you are going with windows XP, get 256mb. 128 is the bare minimum to run it.
Join the revolution! Eliminate floppy drives forever! Buy a $20 compact flash reader and a couple CF cards. These come in internal designs that you can put in a 3 1/2" or 5 1/4" bay, as well as external! Encourage motherboard manufacturers to include this with their boards. It's a cheap PCB, folks. It shouldn't add more than $5 to the cost.
Please feel free to copy this and put it in your own sig.
