Here are my specs:
1022MB ram (2 x 512mb ram)
NVIDIA Geforce 6800 - with 256 video ram (PCI-Express)
2 processors running - Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 3.20GHz
3.19 GHz Performance Rated at 4.79 GHz
I have a few questions regarding upgrading this particular model. Which i plan on using for gaming purposes.
- There are four slots for RAM on the motherboard. I planned on buying 2 x 2gb sticks of ram to replace the 2 x 512mb ones, but i heard somewhere that each slot can only handle 1gb. Can anyone elaborate on that?
- Will upgrading the ram solve some of the overheating issues i’ve been having? I know that the cooling system has much do with it, but will the extra ram take a lot of pressure of the comp?
- How is my graphics card? It’s about 3 years old, but is it good enough to handle todays games on better settings (if i had more ram that is)? If not, can anyone recommend a better graphics card that is less than $100?
- I’ve heard bad things about the processors i have now. Can anyone elaborate on how it’ll affect my performance on games.
