Hi! New member here :) 

I have a lenovo desktop.

It's specs are
AMD Athlon x4 645
ATI Radeon HD 5450
Lenovo Tilapia CRB Motherboard D2KT35AUS
and 2GB of RAM


I can't read anything that's written on the stickers placed on the case.
I have no idea how old it is or what model this unit is.
I need help to know the following:

1. How much does this cost?
2. Is this strong enough to play games?
3. What upgrades should/can I do to make it better?

Thank you! :)

1. Cost as in nowadays? probably about $250 USD or so
2. Nope, 2GB of RAM and a 5450 are the weakest links on that machine
3. Yeah, get more RAM, upgrade the power supply and add in a better GPU

Thank you for replying! What should i look for when it comes to compatibility for my motherboard in buying a better GPU?


From what I understood from reading other tilapia motherboard related topics, the bottleneck for the cpu is the motherboards bios
and for the gpu is it's power supply?

Well assuming that the 5450 is running off a PCI-Express 2.0 slot, then modern GPUs should be compatible. Some motherboards are better for overclocking the CPU than others. The limiting factor for choosing a GPU would be the power supply, as if it cannot supply enough power, a dodgy one has a chance of (literally) blowing up and may take some other components along with it.
