As you may know from my other post (about laptops) my computer specs are ati duron 1.6 ghz, ati radeon 7200, 512 mb of ram. So as you may think i wish to upgrade this old computer of mine... i would like to chance ati duron to intel core 2 duo e7600 :bounce:  and ati radeon to nvidia 430 :bounce:  . So is this upgrade possible ? :o 

More about : upgrading

Nope. It is a laptop, and the e7600 is a desktop cpu using an entirely different board and socket.

or is the Club 3D RADEON HD 3450 AGP 512MB GDDR-2 DVI-I a better choice for a video card?

Well you would have to buy an entirely new motherboard and processor and ram. What is your entire budget? Core 2 duo is old tech, you might be able to upgrade to current processors such as the core i3/i5/i7.

Im not able to upgrade anymore :(  my computer died. My guess is to buy a new cheap pc with a intergrated graphics card and then upgrade the cpu,gpu,ram etc.... is that a good choice ?

Well sure! What is your entire budget?
