I have a Dell 5150 and it has run perfectly since I received it 6 years ago. Now, I would like to upgrade the processor.
Inside is a:
SL7Z9 Intel Pentium 4 630 Socket 775 3.0 2M 800 CPU
X300 D3A27 Video card (A ATI Radeon X300SE).
305Watt (H305N) Power Supply.
I would like to get a GOOD HDMI video card with possibly TV CAPTURE Capabilities. Now the bad part. I am not a dummy, but rather a Mac Person from the beginning of Apple. I do understand PC's and Windows XP and the removal and replacement of components. However, I don't know what goes with what. I don't want to FRY the computer as it has worked great since I bought it.
