Ok, I Googled and found the below info;
Integrated GeForceÂ® 6150 SE graphic GPU (shares 64megs of ram)
- Any gpu upgrade you do will be very visible. I would suggest one of the 9600gt
- Ram 2x1gig
Any one you pick here will do you good although the OCZ/Crucial are better than the Adata. I see that lots of people like the Geil ram
and it is only $29
Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio
- I don't think you need to do anything here but then I don't know what the mobo is. And it would depend on what kind of audio it is you are listening too. A Live! 24bit sound card is pretty cheap. Creative
is such a popular brand but there are waaay better ones to get, you will pay quite a bit more for them. Like I said it all depends on what you are using them for. Gaming might be a bit better than the integrated...
I've given you cheap options for a reason. Dell brands are not worth putting hundreds of dollar into them for upgrades. Dell is a cheap no frills brand that does alot of people good for what they want it to do. As you are here in OCN you are thinking outside the box and if you look around you will find other, better
, ways of building a brand new, so to speak, computer. This new one you build will be light years beyond the Dell. But your Dell does have a nice cpu that you could migrate to the new build, along with the drives and that would save you a bit.
Browse around, take a few days to do it, look the stickies at the top of each forum's list. Read what others have if it is of interest to you. You will be the one using the pc so you will have to know some idea of what you need compared to what you can afford. Figure out a budget and I am sure you will get alot of suggestions as to how to get what you want. But do some reading of gpus, cpus and video/audio cards and get a feel of what we are running and what you want. It might take a few days but researching is the way to go. It is very easy for you to ask what we would buy for you. You budget might not take what some might suggest so you need info.
Good luck and I'll watch here for replies.
