    Strating on the road to MCDST, MS Press books delivered (christ they're huge), Technet subscription active (Want and need to play witha domain environment)... shame my machine is slow, old and ****e, if anyone wants to donate £500 to let me get it up to scratch that'd be great!

    I've seen them in my local bookshop ideal for propping up table legs when not in use :)

    They caught me totally unawares as I have an Exchange '03 MS Press book sat on my shelf here which is about half the size, what I hadn't taken into account because I've never looked at the thing (was handed it by my brother in law who no longer has to do any server admin work) is that that is the administrators pocket consultant not a bible for any MS exam....

    Its an elderly socket 939 Athlon 64X2 3800+ with 2GB Ram, so yeah it probably could just about handle it if I didn't mind it being dog slow but I think the time has come I've got my eyes on a nice simple upgrade with an extra RAM kit to take it up to 8GB should keep me happy for a while :)

    Just read the fine print on this. If you add additional memory, you need to update the BIOS. This will invalidate any warranty on the overclock and may reduce the clock speed of the CPU.

    Well spotted, hadn't seen that.... going to have to do it the hard way then, which will at least save me a few pennies

    It does save pennies, down to £409.49 with all the same components from scan, still haven't actually got the money mind...
