Default Re: Help on my D51c

Really? You don't think i need to upgrade my 2.4 GHz pentium 4 processor?
Well ill have to consider that Also do you know of a good PSU to put in my system thats 450W? How about a good AGP video card? 512 MB will do just fine.

Thanks(:

I'd go for this graphics card, this PSU and perhaps some RAM if you want it.

Looks sexy to me Although i may switch the PSU for a good ol' Antec. And im upgrading my RAM too! i also MAY be looking to upgrade my processor because i have some money left over and well... Nothing wrong with the extra speed (:

Are you CPU savvy at all? Because if i have a socket 478 does that mean i could put ANY socket 478 in there?

Thanks!!!
