Should I Upgrade My Computer or Buy a New One?

If your computer is slow, you have two choices, either to upgrade the PC or buy a new one. Buying a new PC is costly therefore an advisable choice is to upgrade a PC.

First decide:
- Will my system support the latest software?
If yes, upgrade it.

How to upgrade your computer?
Decide the computer accessories that need to be upgraded. For example, you might have less RAM in that case buy more RAM modules.

Same goes for graphic cards, storage devices and even processors.

wont to upgrade graphic card my p.c has 2gig max ram in it wonts should i upgrade to to preform its best cheers mike


Depends on what kind of hardware you have
-Memory- 2 gb ram is "ok" if you use windows XP but if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should have a minimum of 4gb ram.
-Processor- if you have a Dual core processor you are ok, if you have a p4 or p3 you dont want to waste money on a new graphics card because it will not help you get better games, your processor and memory will slow you down instead.
So my advice is, if you have a OK computer, go ahead with buying a new graphics card if you computer is old and slow, DONT buy a new card! put your money on +2gb ram instead (cheap,and gives you more benefits) or maybe buy an "upgrade package" with new motherboard-memory-processor.

I installed Windows 7 on my computer, my motherboard is Asus A8V-VM-SE. My chipset support cd doesn´t support WIN7, so I actually have no sound.


You can always have choice you know . Now as your ON board Sound card is not working with windows 7 you can buy a Sound card for replacement like of creative and other companies... they would be the best choice at low cost and windows 7 compatible... But before buying it please try updating your driver.

Depending on the laptop, the manufacturer often has two or three choices on the video card. Before purchasing you can make the choice. If you have already purchased, you can upgrade to another video card as long as the video card is not integrated on the motherboard. Check the laptop specifications online and see if the manufacturer offers the upgrade before purchase.
