I have been thinking about building a computer.. but recently I got a hold of and old Compaq Presario SR1810NX and I want to upgrade its processor and RAM for now until I have the money for a good graphics card. I have found a decent processor and RAM that I think might work with this computer. can anyone tell me if this will work or not?
Yeah, they should both work, but I wouldn't really call it a worthwhile upgrade for the money. That system just isn't really worth upgrading because by the time you put a GPU in it, you're spending more on it than it's worth.
Its a complete waste of money to upgrade that.
$200 is better spent on a new system
This Newegg combo here for $233 would run circles around that single core athlon64 and would actually even let you game some. That athlon64 would barely run facebook. Now I'mnot saying buy this kit, just that tehre are way better options out there than trying to upgrade that 'coffin'. its dead - throw it out. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I...
