Hey everyone! I'm new here and i'd just like to get some input!
I'm planning to upgrade a few pieces of my PC Desktop.
It's an Acer Aspire M1201
Windows Vista 32bit Home Premium
AMD Athlon Dual Core Processor 4450e 2.3GHZ
4 - 1GB DDR2 - 800MHZ Ram (4GB Total)
EVGA Nvidia Geforce 8600GT 256MB
250 Watt PSU
That's all the information i have on my computer, i wanted to see if i could get a new motherboard, processor and power supply first and these were the ones i had in mind:
Newegg.com - ASUS M4N72-E AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma 2.7GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 95W Dual-Core black edition Processor - Processors - Desktops
Newegg.com - Sunbeam PSU-BKS-480-US 480W ATX12V Power Supply - Power Supplies
First off i wanted to ask if it were possible to install all these into my current computer? Is there anything that isn't compatible with my current hardware? I don't know much about computers so go easy on me . And 2nd, if i switch the motherboard does it allow me to change to a 64bit Vista Or would i still need some sort of recovery disc with 64bit option on it? I plan on upgrading my ram and graphics card at a later time (sooner than later)
Any tips, input and help would be greatly appreciated!
Also if you guys would recommend a better Motherboard / Processor / PSU for around the same price i'd gladly appreciate that as well -- my spending limit is $240.00.
Thanks in advance!
Better yet, what should i get in order to run "Crysis" game? What would be the best options? Would it be ok if i upgraded everything but the motherboard (instead of motherboard, a new graphics card)?
