  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    Well here is your PC:
    http://www4.dealtime.com/xPF-Compaq-Presario-S4000NX-2-4GHz-Celeron-System
    It looks an old system,i suggest you getting a new system instead if you can,because with that specs you can't play games well.
    Also a 9400GT is a low end card and not recommended for gaming
  2. I concur, that system is to old to bother upgrading.
    Save the cash you would have spent on the 9400GT and put it towards a new system.
  3. Yes, u right 6669, it's very old and weak.
    Bombelhh, u better save your money from now to buy a whole new system...
  4. Yea i know the computer is old, I was thing about buing new computer for games & stuff but i don't really know what kind and for a good $$$, any sugestion of a computer that i could play new games on it.
  5. Okay, let's start from how much is your budget?
    Many people here would happy to help u to decided...
  6. I would like to spend around 500-700$$$

    How is this for a complete build:

    Athlon II x4 620: $99
    Gigabyte MA770T-UD3P: $70 after $10 MIR
    4Gb DDR3 1033: $100
    HIS 5770: $153 after $10 instant promo code 'VGA1214'
    Antec 300 Illusion Case: $55
    OCZ ModXStream 500w PSU: $40 after $25 MIR
    WD Black 1Tb Hard Drive: $100
    Sony Optiarc 24x DVD/RW: $32

    Total: $649 after $35 in MIR's and a $10 promo code

    This will give you a quite fast and high quality build that you will be able to upgrade as needed in the future.
    If you want to shave a bit of the costs, look into the following componets:

    Athlon II x2 240: $58
    -OR-
    Athlon II x3 425: $77

    4Gb DDR3 1066: $75
    9800GT: $75 after $25 MIR
    WD Blue 500Gb Hard Drive: $56

    This will bring the price down to $461 or $480, after MIR's, and will still be a massive upgrade from your current system.
  8. Thank you for your help outlw6669, i was more thinking about buying already build computer from ebay or some store because i not gonna be able to set it up my self.
