Hi. I would like to upgrade my rig and here my stuff:
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20GHz,Socket 775 LGA
2047 Mo RAM DDR2
Motherboard ECS 671T-M
Use Integrated LAN and Sound
I would like to put a new Intel i7 and 4-6Go of RAM when Windows 7 will be for sale.I will only put 500$ max on it.As I have heard about my motherboard doesnt support overclocking and would need to be changed.Any suggestions? BTW I live in Canada
I live in the UK but I would guess the prices over there are similer to ours in the computer world. Upgrading depends on what you are wanting to do with the computer. If you wanted to play serious games on it then you really need a new one with a lot higher specs than the one you have now. It would be cheaper to buy a complete unit. If its just for general web stuff and video making, then a bigger processor with more ram memory and a better graphics card with its own on board memory. Look at the prices for a new one at a higher spec and then add up what it would cost to change the processor, memory, graphics card, sound card and then you will have to get microsoft to give you another number so your system can be accepted by windows because so many changes makes it think that it is anew computer.
of course i aleardy run windows7 i have beta on hardrive but its just to upgrade for gaming a little bit because my dualcore is geting too old and my RAM poor,also my motherboard is ?"/$ cant even overclock.
