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

* The system configuration of Acer Aspire 4720Z PC Notebook is :

160 GB or larger hard disk drive / 5-in-1 card reader / 512 MB or 1GB DDR2 533 MHz DIMM module / Intel Pentium dual-core mobile processor technology T2310 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.46, 533 MHz FSB), Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset.

* If you want to play 3D games with better performance, switch to Windows XP SP2 and upgrade the RAM!

* If you want to upgrade the memory (RAM), you can check this site : http://www.laptoppartsexpert.com/c-60093-acer-aspire-4720-series-as4720z.html

Upgrade from pentium 915 D to dual core


The pentium d 915 is a dual core processor, albeit a bad one. You should check google for info on your motherboard to see if it supports Core 2 duo's/ Core 2 quads. I have an E6600 overclocked to 3.0ghz and it still plays games perfectly paired with my 8800gt 512mb and 4gb's ram. I definately recommend upgrading to a core 2 duo. I used to have a pentium d 915 and it was bad for gaming and the e6600 blows it out of the water. You most likely wont find the e6600 anywhere as it is nearly 3 years old. Look at sites such as toms hardware to find a good core 2 duo.

Good luck- an t-adh leat!
