I would say the manufacturer or possibly a locksmith could just replace the lock and then you have new keys.

Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader


This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.

Upgrading my Acer Aspire M1641 Desktop graphics card


The motherboard will support any PCI Express x16 or PCI Express 2.0 x16 video cards. Your main concern should be with the power supply since it is either a 300w or 250w.

Here is a pretty good choice for your price range:

Input your info here to see if you need a power supply upgrade.

A little money for system memory would be good if you have less than 1 Gig.
You can test it here:

If you are saving money by not buying a motherboard and want to spend it (which is what I would do), I would put the money into a the video card and power supply.
Like this:
http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=8&l3=726&l4=0&model=2705&modelmenu=1

And this:

I do not know the dimensions of the Aspire Case, so one thing to keep in mind is the dimensions of the card and the power supply. Make sure they will fit before buying.

If you start replacing motherboards and such, you might as well just go with a whole new system. A new motherboard, new CPU, new memory, new graphics, new power supply, fast hard drives, new case.

No problem want to upgrade


There are lots of possibilities Rob. Endless, I would say. Looking at your specs you could spend up to $400 or $500 depending on what you want.

RAM - $50 to max out @ 4GB
Graphics - $100 to $200 for a good PCI-Express card w/512MB
Sound - $50 to $100 for a good 7.1 card
CPU - $100 for a Pentium Dual Core 2.7GHz with 800MHz FSB

These prices are from www.tigerdirect.com which would be a good place to start.

One thing to consider is the price of a new computer compared with an upgrade. Sometimes you are better off just getting a new one. Again, it depends on what you want...and can afford.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

Possible to upgrade?


Any system can be upgraded, just depends on how much money you want to spend, and what format you wish to choose. Systemax systems were not bad systems. New motherboards (MB) allowing the latest CPU, and memory configurations are possible in any box, providing the power supply can handle the load. What type of OS comes into play, as unix based alternatives are growing daily with users exploring that option. Most of the world uses Microsoft OS's, and yes your system can but upgraded to use Vista if need be. I build PCs and normally use a brand new box to start with. State of the art gaming or business apps, your system is already out dated the minute it was made. New this or that comes out at top dollar. Is it necessarry to have every option and gadget? Usually not, so tell your builder what you plan to do with the PC and let them put together the machine built to YOUR liking. Hard Drives are light years from the 10 MB behemoths of the 80's, the terabyte drives of today are under $100. If the data is on your old hard drive, it can be ported over to the new system so you don't lose the precious pictures of you and yours from way back when. It comes down to what you want and what options are available at the time you make up your mind. Chances are, if money isn't a question, you'll end up with a new machine. You can get the data off the old PC, and then can give your old system to a friend or relative and they can learn on it. Or you can gut the old systemax box and put in new power supply, dvd burners, MB, memory, CPU, TB HD, new multi option a: drive with card readers, the latest in graphics cards. All the buzzes and whistles, liquid cooling if you so prefer. What ever floats your boat, just comes down to how much money you want to spend and how elaborate you want your system. But to answer your question, anything can be upgraded.
