Backstreet,

Dependending on your budget for your upgrade project you can implement some or all of the following to upgrade your PC.

First thing I would do is to upgrade your Videocard to one of the new PCIe offerings. ATI would be your preffered vendor as your Onboard video is ATI and this will limit any possibilities of driver conflict.

Next I would upgrade the RAM in the system you currently have 1GB which is sufficient for MOST games currently on the market but there are games in developement that can put some extra ram to good use. Your current MAX for this board is 2Gb with a 1Gb module in each DIMM slot.

CPU you can check with Intel and see what other duocores are available that might improve your speed.

Get a pair of SATA WD digital raptor drive (Fastest you can find) and set them up in a RAID array and install your Operating system on it. this is going to allow your computer to access the data at twice the speed as a non RAIDed drive

then I would consider a high end Audio card (My preferred one is the creative Xfi)

Hope this helps,
Good Luck
Dave

Can some one please let me know the name of the motherboard supporting Pentium 4 1.5 Ghz processor as well as Intel Core duo series of processors. Thanks, Ajay


The chips to which you refer are incompatible with respect to the socket used for each as well as the fact that Core duo and Pentium 4 1.5 GHz chips are from separate generations, the latter having been obsolescent since 2003. Therefore, there is no single motherboard that supports both, and the Pentium 4, Socket 478 boards can be obtained from various aftermarket sources.

Here is an example of the kind of board you need for your Pentium 4.

ASUS P5L-VM 1394 mother


Here is a link to a website that identifies the specs for your motherboard, and also identifies the type of processors that are compatible with your motherboard. It is Intel Core 2 duo/ Intel Core 2 duo Extreme capable.

It looks like you have a good candidate for a gaming pc, in my opinion. I would suggest that you upgrade the memory to its max of 4 GB. This link also has a list of all compatible memory modules for your motherboard, If you click on a memory module, there is an option on the next page to tell you where you can buy it and for how much.
