I am currently running AMD Athlon 3700+ DFI Lan Party NF3 UT 1 x 1GB Crucial DDR 400 & 1 x 1GB OCZ DDR 400 (Due to memory failure a year ago) Some sort of Arctic 64 Cooler Antec P180 Western Digital Green Power 1TB LG SATA DVD/RW 2 x Samsung DVD/RW IDE 550W Hiper Power Supply
Basically I am looking for a very budget upgrade. Probably to something in the way of a Pentium dual core. I have been looking at the e5300 and the ga-g31-esl2 plus some crucial ballistix memory 2gb or 4gb not sure. I could do with on board graphics otherwise I may stretch to a half decent video card but can’t really see the point for what I do.
Mainly used for a bit of photo editing, internet, office, data transfer and some cad. Mainly just want the whole computer to run faster, start up faster and run vista with a view to windows 7 in the future. More multitasking speed.
Just some general advice or some better ideas would be much appreciated.
Trying to keep the upgrade to under £170.00, not bothered where i can get the kit, ebuyer is great but Cheapest wins!
