Hi everyone, and Happy Easter!
This forum has been very helpful to me in the past, so here I am again
For the purpose of improved gaming, I'd like to upgrade my GPU, RAM and maybe even the processor but; I am limited by a rather old motherboard, and I can't/do not wish to build a new system.
This is what I currently have:
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.73
4GB Infineon PC2-4200 DDR2-533MHz
NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT
Intel chipset 925XE
NPS 460BB PSU (460W)
It's a Dell XPS, Gen 4 (3?) about 10 years old! The amount of RAM (4GB) can't be increased but hopefully I can get faster RAM in there?
This is what is written on top of the processor: 'Intel 2004, pentium 4, SL7Z4 COSTA RICA, 3.73GHz/2M/1066/04B, 3503A930'
I know the current card is drawing a little too much power from the PSU as it is, but hopefully modern cards give more performance for less consumption.
So far I have upgraded the HDD up to 1T and upgraded the former ATI Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition GPU to the current nvidia one, though a further upgrade is desired
Any suggestions much appreciated!
