Hi, I know I have made the biggest mistake you could ever make...... buying a computer instead of building one, but anyway if you could answer some of my quesitons to hopefully upgrading my dell I will be happy
Its a Dell Dimension 2350 series and what I want is to upgrade the video card and memory i geuss so my computer can run new games that require high graphics such as Doom 3 and such
What I have:
Intel Pentium 4 Processor at 1.80GHz
256MB DDR SDRAM at 266MHz
Integrated Intel 3D AGP Graphics
40GB Ultra ATA-100 Hard Drive (7200 RPM)
56K PCI Data Fax (Is this my motherboard?)
200 Watt Power Supply
I dont know much about computer parts so tell me if I forgot to list something that is needed to answer my questions
1. I don't think my motherboard has an AGP slot so I geuss I have to get a new motherboard that has one, any recommendations?
2.When I do get a new motherboard do I have to buy windows xp as well and could I put my P4 processor in it?
3. I dont want a video card that can run the new games on high settings plus more because they are very expensive, but instead something that can atleast run it on normal or above average settings, any recommendations?
4. How much RAM should I get because I know 256MB is very low?
5. If you do recommend me a video card please tell me what power wattage I need because I doubt 200 would be enough
Right now im playing Guild Wars and the only place where I dont completely freeze because of my crappy video card is CA arenas, I cant pve,gvg,or do tombs without freezing up every 2 minutes or so (for those who know what im talking about)
