How & what to upgrade
Posted on 1999-12-09
I know little about how comp parts interact with each other and what each does. My comp is a Gateway tower 100MhZ with 1.01 GB, 2 X 8 MB EDO RAM, 4X CDR, Vibra SB16 Sound, S3 Trio 64V+, 56k modem, with a Gateway Vivitron15 monitor. The whole thing is about 4 yrs old but the modem is only 1 yr.
What is worth replacing or would a whole new system be my ONLY option. What can I replace, what should I replace, can I keep some of the things I already have, how far before my tower can't take it(115v, ? Amp), can I keep my monitor.
What would be recommended keeping in mind I don't have $10k to spend and don't need mr. super 600MhZ, 30 GB, 128 MB RAM.
