So I have an old (2008) machine, in my mind at least, could run Win 10 and touchscreen nearly as good as a new one but I would like to know if I'm completely crazy or if there's a chance.
It was a bleeding edge, custom made gamer (although I didn't make it) back then and it still runs Win 7 pretty darn well. Here are the specs:
NVIDIA nForce 680i LT motherboard (specs: http://www.nvidia.co...ech_specs.html)
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.4GHZ
GE Force GTX260 (gaming is not a factor anymore - only need this for internet, media, etc.)
4 GB PC26400 DDR2 SDRAM
Windows 7 64 bit
The 2 upgrades I'm thinking of (in addition to a nice 24inch+ touchscreen)
4 to 8 GB ram (which is unfortunately the motherboard's limit)
250 GB SSD to serve as boot drive (and keep one or both additional standard drives)
The Ram of course is extremely simple but I wasn't sure on a SSD. An Amazon description of a Samsung unit said "Sata III". Does my motherboard support Sata III?
So not having even looked at computer specs since then I've never tried to see what is necessary to run a good system nowadays. So waddya think - could this work or would it be easier to keep the case and gut it for a whole new build?
