i have a dell dimension 3000 and i'm thinking about upgrading it.
can you guys help me out with brand suggestions and options?
current pc specs:
512mb ram (256 x2)
i primaraly use it for adobe photoshop cs2 photo editing & multimedia purposes.
i'm aware there is no agp slot for any hardcore video card, but i'm ok with it since i don't plan on playing any video games.
i basically want my computer to run smoothly, having programs start up faster, without it slowing down when other applications are running. (photoshop cs2 seems to lag at times)
i also want to either store more things on my pc via a second hdd (looks like im going to need another mount) or dvd-rw drive and burn everything onto media discs.
i have about a 300.00 budget, and plan on getting everything via newegg.com or tiger direct or some other sites.
so how should i go about when upgrading my pc?
i have no idea which parts are compatible with my dell dimension 3000 (ram pin compatibility etc) so wondering if you guys can help. thanks.
