I have been looking into upgrading my computer so I can play games on it better. I found a video card and a new power supply. But the only thing that seems to be holding me back is my processor. I wanted to upgrade my processor so I could get more Ghz. But I cannot find anything for a TDP of 22W.
Is there anything I can do to change that?
Also I'm new to all this. This is my first time trying to upgrade anything. Recently, a game that I loved playing has gotten very slow to play. At first it was running fine until I added an expansion to it. After looking into the problem when it first started, I found out I needed a new video card, AND a better processor because my Ghz just wasn't doing it.
So I am a newbie at this, but I'm really trying hard to get the right information so I can upgrade my computer.
My computer Specifications:
HP Pavilion All-In-One MS225 Desktop PC
Athlonll X2 250u (R) 1.6 GHz (25W)
2000 MT/s (mega transfers/second)
Motherboard Name: CapironaD
Socket type: AM2
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
imo that could turn out to be more hassle than it's worth. because, as you might have realized it already, your cpu's performance will get in the way and you need a stronger graphics upgrade. in that case, a new build would be better. save up some money, get your requirements (gaming/basic use/video editing etc), set a budget and get started. ask in the system section (of the forums) if you need further help.
Thank you guy for being honest with me. I had a feeling last night that there wasn't much I could for my computer. But I appreciate your honesty. I'll looking into building my own pc like you two said. I've heard quite a lot of people speak positively of it.
