I have the following system and want to upgrade to a system for following purpose:
Purpose of upgrade: Gonna be used by my parents--web surfing, MS office, watching 720, 1080i movies, some basic gaming, Hassle free operation, Fast boot time, durable (work for long hours- will be switched on for 5-9 hrs per day).
This is giving some intermittent boot problem, RAM problem & problems which stall usage. As of now , I am bored to troubleshoot the problem in this and decided to go for an upgrade.
1. Is it wise to change the entire CPU, Mobo, RAM or just change the mobo alone or RAM? 2. Budget is $170 - $200 (Indian Rupees 7000 - 10000)
3. AMD based or Intel?
4. How much can I get from selling the old CPU, mobo, RAM?
I request you inputs.
