    seems like a good upgrade, I'd suggest you take the hard drive from your current computer and add it to the new one if you decide to buy it. that might save you some money.

    let us know if you need anything else.

MD athlon 64x2 6000+ 3.0ghz dual core processor

Great CPU

2x2gb DDR2 1066mhz Ram by gskill

Loads of RAM

EVGA nvidia 9500gt 512mb video card with dual monitor support

Excellent video card, good for gamers.

80gb 7200rpm Sata 2 3.0gbs HD

Disk is to small for the rest of the specs, at least 160GB would have been nice.

LG DVD burner w silent run tech.


Gigabyte Mid tower black light gloss case

nice case.

Antec tricool 120mm rear exhaust fan with 3 speed switch
ECS 8200a motherboard with HDMI

Also good motherboard.

Antec smartpower power supply rated at 400w

Concluding: It is a great power computer with a too small hard drive. Still a bargain for this price, ask if they can upgrade hard disk.

Removing bluetooth chip

Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Do you have a wireless connection set up?

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
