Thanks ignazatsonic Well I was just thinking a of making one that was a bit speedier and it is a bit of a whim to do something like that after working on my son's gamer - although I must admit it isn't as quick as this machine.
I think you're right mate I probably need to come down to earth a bit and I agree that getting the latest is foolish as they are upgrading willy nilly eh? Plus money -not that I am rolling in it and of little consequence to me - friends are of more importance - I would have been prepared to lay out to get this stuff.
I was perhaps a little blinkered by the RAM speed and the O/Cing of the CPU to be absolutely honest, and perhaps a tad old and going soft in the head
Hum perhaps that SSD might be something to play around with after all
Thanks again for getting me back on the level!
