I jacke up my old PC w/upgrades
By Jacke, I meant Jacked! Anyway, I have an older Gateway 550 GR desktop with the following specs
Pentium 4 3.2 GHz, 800 bus speed
2 GB Ram, 200 GB SATA hard drive.
A couple of years ago I upgraded the video card to a Nvidia 7800 GT and it worked well. I decided to try to get a couple of more years out of it w/a better video card. So I installed more Ram (3 GB, 1.5/side) put in a 600 W Corsair power supply in, installed win 7.
So before I installed the (as yet unpurchased) video card I have noticed that it's gotten slower, there's a fan that's running most of the time, and it's shut down once or twice due to overheating.
I'm cinsidering tooing it and getting a new one - any ideas?
