I guess it may seem marginal on getting a new computer, but the cheapest decent new laptop would be around £350 to £400. This computer is only going to be used for basic functions, and hopefully with this upgrade will make the computer last a long time regarding its purpose.
The RAM memory of the computer and graphics card have been upgraded to 4GB RAM and 512MB GPU.
PNY GEFORCE 8400GS PCI 512MB GRAPHICS CARD
4 GIGABYTE (4 X 1 GB) KINGSTON HYPERX DDR400 PC3200 NON ECC 184 PIN RAM
I want to make theses changes so it will be 64bit. What I have read explained that the motherboard and the CPU needed to changed to make this possible. I'd like to get a motherboard that is still compatible with the RAM, GPU and other components that are used by the current motherboard.
This is a link to Intel's lists for Motherboards and CPU's that would be compatible, http://ark.intel.com/
I only have a limited knowledge about computers, if anyone could advise which would be the best Intel motherboard and CPU to get.
