My daughter currently is using a be2300 based system with onboard 6100 graphics. I am considering either replacing the cpu to a a64 5400 plus, or adding adding a geforce 9400 gpu, keep in mind she is certainly not a gamer, she does schoolwork,watches dvd,and video, and does her zune stuff on it,it works fine for all of that. So in your opinion should i upgrade to a64 5400 and use onboard video, or should i go with geforce 9400 and keep current cpu?
I think the key sentence for me was "keep in mind she is certainly not a gamer, she does schoolwork,watches dvd,and video, and does her zune stuff on it,it works fine for all of that"
Signals to me that it doesn't need a thing done to it.
IMHO, give your daugher a gift card with the same value on it you would spend for a new processor, and I think she would be 1 happy camper.
I guess jtpublisher kinda hit it on the nose, when i talked to her today and told her i was thinking of upgrading her computer her response was: "why this time, it runs fine, i need a new printer though", so i guess if it works for her it works for me, and i will be printer shopping.
