I have an AMDK6 400Hz chip and have just connected to broadband. I am playing games on line and my computor is really slow. I upgraded my RAM some time ago and have 512mg and have 2 hard drives both running at 7200. I think i need a new processor....any advice on what to get. I dont want to spends loads of cash.
Has your computer slowed up since you connected to broadband? How do games on disk fare? Have you carried out cleaning of files, defragging your disk, etc, so that you have a clean lean machine (one of the hazards of broadband must be the speed at which you can acquire garbage). And have you virus checked lately? All these things can be done at a cost of zilch, before you think of upgrading anything (although the old K6-2 is getting on a bit now, I agree).
Did a clean re-install just before getting broadband so no junk as yet although very tempting to download all sorts of crap. virus check weekly and have set Norton to update every week too. Have got diskeeper software running in the background defragging so no probs there
i would say you just need a new graphics card but with all these new games etc i would go with the bundle Motherboard Bundle - AMD XP 2000 (1.67GHz), Heatsink and Fan, 256MB 333MHz DDR RAM, Socket A Motherboard. GOOD LUCK BUT TRY A NEW GRAPHICS CARD FIRST also you could try increasing your virtual memory this takes more space but could sort the problem give me your OS specs and i will tell you how to increase your virtual memory
