Here are my specs... What Should I do?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So here are the specs of my computer. I want to do "stuff" to it so I need suggestions. Here are a couple questions maybe you can answer:
  1. Given the CPU, would adding more RAM do any good as the Ram and CPU should be evenly matched.
  1. Given my Mobo, would upgrading CPU be feasable
  1. Given my RAM and CPU... Any suggestions on Overclocking?

THE SPECS:

Base processor

PentiumD 920 (P) DC 2.8 GHz

* Socket 775

Chipset
Intel 945P

Motherboard

* HP/Compaq motherboard name: Emery-UL8E

Maximum allowed 4 GB* (4 x 1 GB)
Speed supported PC2-4200 MB/sec
Type 240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM

well some more info would be great, like your video card for example. Also definatly consider a new motherboard, the HP ones are junk as they can't overclock

Well your motherboard has a PCI-E slot so really any new video card will work in it. Depending on what kind of budget you have I have a few recommendations

$80
X1650XT
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161049

$150
X1950XT 256mb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102067

$260
EVGA 8800GTS 320mb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130082

All three of these cards will give you a MASSIVE performance boost, and obviously the more you spend the better the boost
