I have an old vaio computer. Probably made about 10 years ago. According to the model specs, the system has an agp x8 slot. Currently, it has an MX440 as its GPU. If I wanted to upgrade it to an agp x8 GDDR3, would that be impossible? Also, what would be my options for upgrading from an MX440, without getting a new mobo or computer? Thanks in advance for all your answers!
Neither of these are amazing, and I advise you to just save your money and get a new computer. However if thats not possible those are your two best options.
However, if you can can you tell us the motherboard, cpu, ram, and resolution you use on the computer? As well as your PSU?
If you don't know them you can downoad CPU-z to tell you the CPU, ram, and motherboard you use. You will have to open the case to find your PSU.
Edit: The specs are mostly the same, except I have 1 gb of RAM and my CPU is clocked to about 3.0 ghz. Also, for future reference, I'd like to know if DDR1 to compatible with DDR2 and DDR3. Sorry for these newbie questions >_<!
If you give us a price range we could find a better Mobo/Cpu/Ram + gpu combo for you... then again you'd probably want a new case and a dvd drive... probably better to just overhaul, You can get a new PC for around 500~750 depending on what you want it for. 500 and less for basic office, 750 or so for moderate gaming.
