Old PC Advice

Hey Guys,

New to the forum. Just was looking for some advice on an old system for my 9 year old daughter. P4 1.7 ghz 400FSB 1.5 GB ram. The video card is a nVidia GeForce 3 Ti200 64MB (Dell 7J062 part#). Upgraded the ram from 512MB. What graphics card would work best? I know the system is ancient. Just trying to get video to run a little smoother. Thanks

  1. Well that goes back to the AGP days....and the best card I found for the money would be this.

  2. The videocard slot is probably AGP so you're limited. I wouldn't spend any money on upgrades. There are Dell deals for $300 all the time.

    Please don't spend much money on a system with 1.7Ghz P4, 512MB RAM, and Ti200. Don't waste money on buying ancient AGP card for any more than $20~$30 max. I would try to use a different, more efficient video playback program (have you tried VLC?). If still want to try to upgrade, search craigslist, ebay, or amazon for cheap alternative card. Other than that, you are better off buying a used PC for about $100~$150.
  4. Thanks for all the replies. Like I said before it's for a child to use. I am not going to spend alot of money on a card for this system. If there was a significant upgrade for $20-30 I would think about it. I will look into VLC. Thanks again.
