Can anyone tell me what kind of processor that exactly is? I can't find out, there are like 4/5 different P4 3.2 GHz.
See, my computer is old and can't be upgraded to dual core.
So, I was wondering if I nab this computer, could I put in my PC's ram, vid card, 2 hard drives into the new computer.
I'd only be paying $100...
And don't tell me to save up 400$ and buy a computer. Just bare with me, please, and understand Im only 15 and my parents wont let me get a job.
This will be coming out of christmas money.
SO, here's the deal exactly.
My computer has an 8400 GS 512 card, which I could put in the new pc.
It has 1 1/2 ram, i could put 1 gb into the new pc (as it only has one free slot)
I could put both / maybe leave my smaller hard drive in old pc (so it would be useable)
put my DVD Burner in new one, put the dvd reader/cd writed into old
switch the power supplies
So in the end it would be :
New PC : P4 3.2 GHz, 8400 GS geforce 512mb, 1.5 gb ram, 500 watt power supply, cd/dvd writer
old pc would be:
AMD Sempron 3000+ (2 ghz), cd writer/dvd reader
1/2 gb ram, built in gfx chip
Right now, my PC is : AMD Sempron 3000 + (2 GHz), 8400 GS Geforce 512 mb, 1.5 gb ram, 500 watt psu, and cd/dvd writer.
Now, there is one main reason to upgrade (besides a slight CPU upgrade):
My current PCU is NOT upgradable to DUAL CORE
IN THE END
MY QUESTION IS
Will that computer be able to handle a DUAL CORE, at least 2 GHZ.
Because, I WOULD DO THIS :
I would have :
For example... (This processor is about $40, assuming its compatible)
Celeron DUAL CORE 2.2 GHZ, (huuuuge upgrade over my 2 ghz sempron)
8400 GS 512 (Can't be upgraded further)
1.5gb ram (maybe would upgrade to 2 gb later, about 50$)
So it would in the end be (Again, assuming that these things are compatible)
$200 for :
Celeron Dual Core 2.2 ghz
8400 GS 512 GeForce
2 gb ram
Windows XP / 7 / Ubuntu triple boot
Would you say, forgetting that I'm really upgrading, that it is worth $200 for that?
Just pretend its a new computer. Would it be worth $200?
I know that was a f*** load of reading, and 99% of you wont read it all, and probably I wont get many if any replies, but if you have the good heart to read it all and be nice and not tell me to save a million dollars for a bargain gaming PC, i will be ever so grateful....
