I used to have time to keep half an eye on systems and their associated peripherals but no longer. I built the current PC 5 years ago with the plan on keeping it upgraded but a change of jobs (to a trainee) meant I no longer had the $$$ to pay for any upgrades.
I would ideally like to build a new system from scratch but the $$$ still won't allow it at the moment but I am in a position to get a couple of new parts to try and improve the system. I am not looking for the PC to play top end games or anything like that, I just want to speed it up for the time being until I can afford to make a new system.
My current system has these components
· Gigabyte GA-8I915P-Duo Pro S775
· Intel Pentium 4 540 3.2 GHz 800MHz FSB
· Gigabyte GV-NX66T128D GEForce6600GT
· 2 x WD1200JD SATA 8MB 7200RPM
· Kingmax SuperRAM 512MB
· Antec Overture case
. Windows XP
I installed another 512MB of RAM a couple of years ago.
I am in Australia (Canberra region) so an online store here would be the place to shop. As far as a budget goes, it isn't a lot, about $300 at the moment but could rise a little if I wait a bit longer.
Any help would be appreciated.
