Hi! I'm a new user (obviously) About me; I use an Alienware Alpha that I got as a present 3 months ago. I now never ever touch my Xbox 360. (Console trash).


Specs:
Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-4130T Dual-Core processor (3M Cache, 2.9GHz) (I know it's trash, I'm saving up for a new one.)
Graphics Card: Alpha chassis with graphics powered by a custom-built NVIDIA® GeForce® GPU 2GB GDDR5
RAM: 8GB DDR3L 1600MHz Memory (I think)
Hard Drive: 1TB SATA 6Gb/s (I think)






Any questions then PM me. rolleyes.gif

Welcome. If your going to replace any thing, why not hold out and save up for a custom build? Much more rewarding. biggrin.gif
A better GPU would do you more good than a CPU...you have 4 threads at least tongue.gif

I'm not sure... I'm broke and I really do like my computer and I wouldn't see a point in paying for a new one.

I'd leave it as is. The i3 isn't a bad piece of silicon and won't bottleneck the GPU that came out of the factory paired with it.
You have 4 threads which is enough. thumb.gif

I'm broke too. smile.gif
