If you wanted something other than gaming (like video editing) then post what you'll use the PC for. you have 160 Watt PSU Integrated Graphics (GeForce 6150 LE) athlon in the range 3800+ to 4600+ (65w) 1 or 2 GB mem You could (1) upgrade memory. Both your memory dimm slots are occupied. Buy a 2GB dimm and throw away one of your current 1/2gb dimms. That gets you to 2.5GB. $25 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (2) add in a video card. You need a short low profile card. This one should work. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (low power with DDR3 not DDR5) $65. Or you can buy a new computer that will substantially outperform your upgraded computer for $350 and get an upgrade to win8 when win8 ships. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
