Old computer upgrade

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello, i was wondering if it is possible to put a HD4850 into my old computer, so i could play some games on it, the computer is around 5 years old, and is it possible to put in two DDR2 800mhz sticks into it too? or does the motherboard not handle DDR2?

Thx for help!

OP, seriously though, if the card fits the slot in your motherboard, i.e, its not AGP, then it should work just fine!
...and if you have'nt bought the extra Ram yet, take one of your original ones with you, to where you intend to purchase the new ones from, and ask the person behind the counter. Alternatively, download CPU-Z, and see what that tells you that you already have installed!!
