Default Re: Help me build/rebuild!

This will not be pretty. In order to keep your Win7 you will have to keep your current motherboard. So we will work around it.

First we start off with a new case and power supply, then we swap out a quad core for your current dual core and add a 4870 graphics card, and then we swap out a stick of 2GB for the 1GB stick in your computer (you should only have two DIMM slots for memory, and your specs say you have 3GB so that should be a 2GB and a 1GB).

2. AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX640WFGMBOX
