I live on the Western side of the US, in Washington state to be exact. Hmm, I was definitely thinking of wanting to add an additional hard drive if I was to keep the one from this PC. I would be looking for the 3.5" SATA drives, correct? Also, could I use the same tower that my computer is using now, or would I have to upgrade that as well?
I definitely want a new motherboard, one that supports up to at least 8GB of ram. I want to put my new 4GB kit to good use.
I think I will need to replace my DVD-RW drive, it barely reads and writes discs anymore. I also want to replace this weak processor.
Edit: Scratch the DVD-RW drive, I still have my Sony external one I can use
So, basically, I would need:
- an additional hard drive (thinking 320 - 500 GB)
- new motherboard
- new processor
- power supply and tower if needed
- DEFINITELY a video card
- the only OS discs I have are for my old Dell desktop and my Gateway laptop. Would either of those work?
Do you guys have any suggestions for those types of materials? Unfortunately, I don't know exactly what to look for, just the specs of the speed
