Looking to build gaming rig using old pentium 4 Compaq tower
So I obtained an old Compaq tower and I was wondering if I would be able to upgrade and/or replace some of its components to build a gaming tower. Anything I should know before I dive into it?
The games I have are dead space 1,2,3 civ 5 terreria and othe indie games. So I'm looking for something that could support a pretty graphic heavy game. I don't mind replacing the mother board or anything, I just want to keep the case and anything else I can use. I am planning on replacing the hard drive and I wont need the disc or floppy drive. It would be nice If i could keep the power source though. Thanks for helping.
