With a laptop computer, nearly everything is integrated onto the system board. This means there's very little you can do to upgrade the computer beyond adding additional RAM. You can also install a larger hard drive, but that's not really an upgrade. Replacing the processor wouldn't be worth the cost and effort as it wouldn't make a noticeable difference in your computer's operation.

The best thing to do if you are really unhappy with your current system's performance is to install as much RAM as it can take. Other than that, put your money into a replacement computer that already has the specs you're looking for.

I own a compaq presario 6450nx and I would like to upgrade it. like adding more ram and replace the cpu if its posible, what could be the suggestion?


This is info on your motherboard:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=bph07843
Your system comes with Intel P4 2.53 GHz processor and 512MB ram. total ram could be 1GB, bt adding another 512MD stick. You have Socket 478 and processor would be up to you. The system comes with a 200w power supply so, in an upgrade, you should up the power supply. You have an AGP expansoin slot and, you could upgrade to a graphics card but again, power supply is only 200w. The system as it stands is not Windows 7 compatible. If you incraesed your ram and got a graphics card, you would get better performance.

Hi,
minimum 2GB for smooth use of the pc, but RAM is fairly cheep so I would go for 4GB. The most importet hardware to be fast is your harddrive.

So I have a HP Compaq d530 SFF PC Desktop problem. I checked out the HP tech specifications: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11632_div/11632_div.html#Technical Specifications - Graphics Is...


"Graphics, is there an upper limit on how much you can upgrade a video card?"

Yes, and no gammon_ben.

Your computer uses an AGP graphics card.
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards. (1.5 volt)

Goes in the brown AGP slot on the motherboard above the three white PCI slots.

The best AGP graphics cards are the AGP 8X ones.

Sky's the limit, just depends on your pocketbook.

Yes, so far.


Primer:
When using Integrated Graphics, the graphics chipset on the motherboard borrows some of the System Resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program being ran.
(Windows XP is one example of an O/S. Operating System)

Let's use an intensive graphics program for an example, a Game, and Windows XP.

The Processor and Ram Memory is supporting Windows.

They're also supporting the characters of the game, the shading of the game, and the background of the game, just to name a few characteristics.

Due to the resources needed from the system resources, (Processor and Ram Memory), from the game, the game will lag, or freeze up.

Using a graphics card frees up the system resources.
A graphics card has it's own Processor (GPU), and Ram Memory. (Graphics memory)
(GPU = Graphics Processing Unit)

However, the Processor still has to utilize the information from the graphics card. Even though it, and the Ram Memory have been freed up, there is a limit on how much information a Processor can handle at one time.

Your Processor may be an Intel Celeron, or Pentium 4.
These are single core processors, and have their limitations.

HOWEVER one more time, you are just speaking of operating a 40 inch widescreen (?) monitor with 1080p.
A really decent AGP graphics card can handle that with no sweat, and watching videos.
Some of the newer intensive games may be a problem.

Here is an example of a decent AGP 8X graphics card, that is Low Profile. (Low in height)
