Help me Spend $100 on an Upgrade!!
I need help on deciding how to spend $100 on my system to speed it up. OR just save that $100 towards a new system.
Here's the specs I'm currently running below....
MSI MS-7061 KM4M-V, KM400 Chipset, AMD XP2200+ CPU, 1GB PC2700 DDR Ram, nVIDIA GeForce 6200 256MB 400Mhz, (2) 80GB 7200 Maxtor, (1) 40GB 5400 WD HDs and (1)Seagate 80GB 7200 External HD, O/S XP Pro
I'm not a gamer, but I am an extremely heavy net user. Usually have 5-10 IE browser windows open at once. Each with 2-3 tabs running. Usally have a 2-3 apps running as well.
My FreeRamPro usage rarely shows RAM usage >600MB (Of the 1GB installed). Not sure if this is accurate or not.
Should I spend a $100 on a faster Processor ?? More RAM ?? Or just save it towards a Duo-Core system down the road ?
