So i was thinking about buying a new laptop but have decided to upgrade my current pc instead. The thing is im not very switched on with pc,s so thought id post here so you guys can help me, basicaly i know what ram i need and whats the max i can have but im having trouble trying to figure out what processor to buy so im gonna try putting as much info about my specs here as i can to help you help me lol, not worried about graphics as i dont play any high end games, all i play is football manager so here we go,
Acer Aspire X3960
Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
3.10 gigahertz Intel Core i3-2100
Multi-core (2 total)
4042 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory
Board: Acer Aspire X3960
Bus Clock: 100 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. P01-A4 03/08/2011 (this is what it said under main circuit board)
and just incase you wanted to know the graphics Intel(R) HD Graphics Family [Display adapter]
So iv tried finding out the mother board and its come up with whats here and intel H67 so hope you guys can h
According to that you have a Radeon HD 6450 graphics card, as you are not really a gamer that will do. Your motherboard has a socket 1155 so you have a pretty wide choice of processor upgrade to select from. You would do well to double your RAM as you have Windows 7 64BIt.
But if your PC is doing what you want it to do why do you feel the need to upgrade? and if you really want to upgrade how much do you have to spend?
Basically it may seem stupid but all i really use the pc for is browsing, music ect but i mostly use it for playing my beloved football manager, some people have said the i3 i have is good enough but when i try to load large databases i.e loads of leagues and players my processor star rating drops from 5 stars to 1 and a half meaning i cant have large database else the game does nothing.
