Hey :)

    I'm going to be building a high end computer system in the near future, but for now I was wondering if my current setup could be upgraded with anything that I would use for my new setup. I posted a picture of my specs and looking for some feedback if anything on my computer is compatabile with the higher end stuff that's out right now. I live in Canada, Ontario.

Thanks in advanced !

Gday blazzin420.

The system looks a bit dated, ( if socket 775?)

The only update worth doing is a GPU, but would need to check the brand/model of the PSU.

 

RAM is not transferable.

Windows OS, if a OEM versions? is not transferable.

 

Providing the HDD and OD are SATA, will be OK.

other hard ware will be OK.

yah I built this comp abour 4/5 years ago for mmorpg's. I didn't mean if I could transfer anything from this computer to the newer one I want to build but rather can I use anything newer on the market in this computer. I will have to buy my new computer peice by peice and was wondering if I bought like DDR3 would I be able to put it in this computer for the mean time. Just to boost this computer while I build the other comp slowly.

The only newer compatible hardware you could install on that system, to make improvements, is a GPU but as mentioned, we would need to check the bran/model of the PSU.
