Need help in upgrading my aging machine.
Posted on 2003-12-08
Hey everyone, I usually just go buy what I want (and build it) but since everyone here is really helpful I thought I would ask. I am planning on upgrading my computer by means of new motherboard, RAM, HDD, CPU. So, basically a new computer. My computer right now is not bad but I "try" to keep up to date.
I was thinking about the AMD FX-51(I love the 1MB of cache dislike Intel), I have no idea what motherboard, 1GB of DDR PC?, 120GB HDD (+ the 80GB I already have), Video card? (I love ATI and will never buy Nvidia), Anybody know of really nice Cases?(Like Alienwares). Any other suggestions for a decent system is welcome.(please suggest)
Any help is greatly appreciated,
My current specs:
AMD Athlon XP 2100
1GB PC2100 DDR
ATI 8500 128MB
LG 4040B DVD-RW
Aopen 32X CD-RW
350watt PS (Do I need more?)
