I've recently gotten an emachine from my dad ("An emachine? WHY?!"
I can imagine you all screaming now!), and am wondering what type of upgrades I can get for it, and if I would be able to take the parts from the emachine and put them into an old PC case (as its bigger and it doesn't look like there is a lot of space left in the emachine case for upgrades). I do have a friend that will be able to help me gut the old case and move the emachine stuff over if I am able to do it at all, but neither of us know if it is a good idea so he suggested I look around online first before we try anything. I am also unable to order things online (no credit card or paypal) but there are local shops here I can check for parts.
I do play World of Warcraft, so I would like something that can run on medium-high graphics with at least 20 fps. I can currently afford around $350 CAD, and possibly another $200 within the next week if I need to dip into that to get what I am looking for in.
My old case does have a fairly new (I think it is new, my dad bought it last year) PSU in it... here is a picture
as I'm not sure what information from it anyone would need to know. Everything else from the old case is very old, the pc is 9 years old and was given to me by my dad, so almost everything in there is about ready to die out, besides a new hard drive & the power supply.
Please let me know if there is any other info I can provide about the emachine or old case..I hope this helps.
AMD Athlon II X2 215 dual-core processor
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE Integrated
3 GB DDR2 memory
220 watt PSU
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
