  1. Overall, better off saving towards a new one. Even a $400 HP would be faster.
  2. Thanks Run. I mainly search the web and read stuff, watch videos and listen to music on YouTube while talking on Facebook all at the same time. Any suggestions on Processor?
  3. basically there is no processor upgrade for that machine.how does it work at present for what you do?
  4. Very slow. :(
  5. @ Aldan, what would be a good set up for what I use a computer for? What processor and what not? I don't play any games. Just have Youtube playing videos while I read email and talk on Facebook. It runs VERY SLOW when I have all 3 going at the same time.
    Do I need a machine with Intel Core i3?
  6. Would I be doing myself any good by spending $219 on this? : Gateway DX4370-UR21 Desktop PC - AMD Quad-Core A6-3620 2.2GHz 6GB 500GB WIN 8 , Manufacturer refurbished.

    that sounds like a pretty good deal to me. with your present setup you are limited by having a single core cpu.the more you run the slower it gets.you will be pleasantly surprised at the difference.you will probably want to upgrade graphics down the road but for present i wouldnt think twice about it.

  8. Thanks Aldan. I guess I will go hit Buy Now on the Gateway.
    :)
  9. have fun.
