Since the topic here is pretty much about PC builds, will any of you guys help me on how I can upgrade my new one?
From what I can get, here are the specs. I'm not sure if that's everything, but it's what I found lol:
Two AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+ 2.50 GHz
2.00 GB of RAM
Windows 7 (64-bit)
NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE
Again, I'm not sure if there is anything else :) But I do want to be able to run B&S on full settings when it comes out. Thanks guys~
oh wow, that video card is from 2005. and so are the processors, first dual cores produced by AMD.
I am 90% certain that your motherboard does not support DDR3 memory since the spec did not exist back in 2005. I strongly suspect this comp will not run B&S well.
You said "new' comp, do you mean you only just acquired it? My instinct is to rebuild the whole thing based on what i am reading here, cause the processors era tells me that a new motherboard is needed and i doubt think any of the other parts plugged into the board will be compatible. boiled down it means new motherboard, new processor, new memory, new video card at least. Hard drive and disk drives might be fine, SATA was made back in 2003 so it might be compatible if those drives have SATA connections.
Lets not rush any decision though, once you get your comp's admin password run the speccy program for a more complete analysis of what's what. Past that the only other thing to check would be the Power Supply, but you will probably need to open the case to see the brand and wattage on it. Also, if you do open it up, does the power supply have any connectors that look like this?
Also, yes, yes i do read LFG comics, along with several dozen other web comics, im a web comic junkie XD
