Building a desktop PC for use overseas
Posted on 2005-03-23
A friend of mine who has recently moved to Belfast, Northern Ireland wants me to build a desktop computer running Windows XP. I am in California.
My question is: What do I need to adjust, tweek, modify, etc. (If anything) in order for my friend to plug the machine in , turn it on, and
start using it immediately? Do I need to adjust the voltage on the power supply from 115 to 220 ? Will a U.S. bought version of Windows XP work okay?
Is there anything else I need to do?
I'm planning on just building a Athlon 1.5 GHz (nothing real fancy) My friend just wants it for getting onto the net, & maybe some light gaming.
I need to get working on it today.
Please help me. I look forward to all comments & suggestions..
