so ive owned this cyber power pc for about 2 years now and ive been wanting to upgrade it. its prebuilt. im not sure what the specs of it are though. if someone could give me instructions to find out what the specs are of my computer, i could share them to see if you guys could give any advice. this computer is a very basic gaming computer. by basic, its meant for flash games at most. i want something a little more powerful. the only problem is that i have a 300$ budget to upgrade. all imput would be greatly appreciated
also, i have downloaded the CPU Z program. im currently looking at all of my specs. i guess ill list them in a list
processor- AMD Athlon II X2 260
core-(it says in the multiplayer part that it is x4.0, so does that mean its quad core?)
motherboard- ASUSTek M4N68T-M-V2
chipset and southbridge- NVIDIA GeForce 7025 + NVIDIA nForce 630a
memory- DDR3 4096 Mb's(channels = Dual)
im trying to include 3 pictures but i dont know how Dx ive opened my computer and i can see a black box at the bottom where the power cord is plugged into. there is no information on it
When you bought it, do you remember if you just got the "standard" PSU. If so then its probably a cheapo PSU. I would suggest you get a new one too. If you are getting a new PSU then it is not so important to know what you have. If you want to keep it, then we have to know the wattage. DO you still have the receipt? It should be listed there. Thanks.
i dont remember unfortunately nor do i have the receipt. the computer was bought for me by a family member. so based on all of the specs that i listed earlier, what would be some good hardware to buy in a 300$ limit to make my computer a decent gaming computer.
now, the last question is, what would be the maximum i could do with my computer with those parts? my dream would be a computer that would play bf3 on ultra, but i know that would cost me an arm and a leg. so basically, what would the power be with the addition of this new hardware?
If you plan to play at 1920x1080, you wouldn't be maxing out GPU-heavy games like BF3 and Crysis. I would say keep them at medium to high and you would get great frame rates. Check out the link to see what I am talking about. Basically, you want 40+ fps to get smooth gaming.
