Hi, my second post.. these forums seem pretty helpful :P Lets see if anyone can help me out.
I run an amd athlon 3000 xp (+2167 mhz)
L2 cache is 512kb (not too sure on this?)
the graphics i run currently is geforce fx 5200
Im also running windows xp (home)
Motherboard is k7s8x
Im thinking of starting a web design comp with a mate of mine that codes, its just when i bought this system i actually bought it to play games (which it does great), but i dont play many games anymore..
Although im not much of a newb when it comes to computers, i dont know how to clock, making the chip for my athlon run faster (probably requires experience).. Im more a software type person
.. i suppose its obvious i need more memory? its just the brand to use & what will fit into my motherboard.. could someone please point me in the right direction. All it is i need more speed for applications such as Photoshop/dreamweaver to run faster on my system, when they load or when i edit large files they slow my computer down a lot see
is there any good software which can almost make my computer as fast as when i install it?
Also i was thinking of gettin a bigger hardrive - mines currently 60, i'd love an external but there too dear i've heard? Im thinkin maybe 120 what would that set me back do you think?
so.. links & prices for things to buy to speed up my computer would be a great help!!! People that run systems with the applications mentioned above, please could they recommend what i should upgrade or add?
Thanks for takin the time to read my post.. Look forward to your replies..
