guys help me out here...
i am upgrading my old computer (i have the new gaming one but fur internet use and my brother plays sometimes)
he said it is so slow
AMD Athlon XP 3200+
448MB Ram(64 shared)
and im thinking to add a graphics card
geforce 5200FX or 5500 or 5700
im not sure that power supply can support it
what d u guys think??
and which graphic card is best in these choices?
for last if i need to change power supply, please give me the good company or the model(really cheap ones)
That PSU might work but you'd definitely be better of getting a new one. Get at least a 400w, something from FSP would be good, good PSUs and not expensive. If you have the money, get at least a 550wto 600w, you can always use it in another build. Before getting a video card put at least 1GB of RAM in that machine, this will do more than anything to speed up the machine. I wouldn't put much money into the video card give you won't be able to use it in a new build.
I'm all for brotherly love but if this is his machine now, let him pay for the upgrades. Again, if the machine is running only 400+ MB of RAM, going with a GB will do more than anything to speed it up.
