RE: Computer

You could do what Kreek said which is correct. Personal opinion: Don't even bother. 77$ is not a budget but a joke.
  • The gpu sucks (don't be fooled by the 1GB RAM, it's core it so weak that even 512MB would be too much for it) but it should be able to run LOL somewhat. However, 77$ is not enough for anything descent graphics-wise. 100$ is the minimum meaning AMD Radeon HD 7770.
  • RAM & HDD are good.
  • So, with that "budget" you can only upgrade the cpu to the best this board can get which is a dual core. In order to properly upgrade this system around 170$ are needed (110 for gpu and 60 for cpu).
  • Also a newer OS with proper x64 support for the 4GB RAM like Windows 7 x64 or Windows 8.1 x64. Note that Windows 8.1 x64 requires NX bit cpu capability which P4 does not support so only with a cpu upgrade will you be able to upgrade that far.

RE: Computer





No offense intended, but the above seems as your best chance of achieving a 'good' computer within your budget.


Edit: Stuff to get IMO:
-win 7
-a total of 8gb of ram
These two in tandem will increase your RAM. I used to have a 4gb ram computer, and games/programs would occasionally crash as my computer ran out of ram.

-new cpu
as mentioned before a lot of stuff nowadays is CPU heavy; games, streams, videos, encoding etc.

if possible = new graphics card
Bonus thing, always good for a gamer.

RE: Computer

Cross-reference it for yourself from this site, until you see something that strikes your fancy Wink
http://www.logicalincrements.com/

With a budget of $275, I'd suggest you replace, Motherboard, CPU, Graphics card, and PSU.

Just pick the parts you like from that graph (Which can be from different tiers) but keep in mind:

1. The CPU, and motherboard must be on the same tier.
2. The Graphics, and the PSU very much should be on the same tier

RE: Computer

I would suggest:
1.
GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2 AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
47.5$



2.
AMD FX-6350 Vishera 3.9GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6350FRHKBOX

140$

3.

PowerColor AX7790 1GBD5-DHV2/OC Radeon HD 7790 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

110$



Links:
1.

2.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6819113327

3.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6814131524

A little above your budget, as it totals out to:
297.5$

The next step would be to buy 4gb more memory and buy a new OS or aquire one some other way.

I have used this site to pick the parts:
http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/


Would be interesting to know more about your memory and PSU.

RE: Computer

275$ is still not enough for a full platform change (new mobo, new cpu, new ram). It depends on what you already have though. What PSU (power supply) does it currently have?

Ummmm...

I did a bit of research on this, and some finds I found say that this one is 250 Watts constant, and 450 watts peak. Unfortunately this is kind of where my knowledge kind of ends since I'm not really sure which number to go for in this case.
