Re: Computer help
You might as well buy/build a new one, dual core processors are now a standard and currently prices are at an all time low. If you just want to use that machine for everyday tasks (e-mail, word processing, surfing the web) it would be ok, but for gaming etc. it's gonig to be obsolete in a few months, especially with the AGP graphics.
If you want a new one, I would recommend the following:
- 1-2 GB of PC3200 / DDR2 RAM
- Dual core processor AMD: Athlon X2 4800+ or Intel: Core 2 Duo E6600
- A motherboard with PCI Express support
- Probably a Geforce 7600GT/ATI X1600XT
That might be above your price range, I don't know, but that would definately be a nice PC that would last around 2 years until you need to upgrade again.
