Basically just buy agp 64mb up to xx mb. its kind of plug and play. Just insert your new Video card to the agp slot make sure you have high resolution monitor to support your new video card. You dont need to upgrade the sound card its best if you have good quality speakers

Hi lchangkee...
If you want to upgrade your ram, all you do is remove the ram that is in the computer, and replace it with compatible ram (same number) an example of that would be if your ram was SODIMM 512MB PC2100 DDR 266 512 MB LAPTOP 200pin MEMORY, then that is the type of ram you will want to replace it with but more like this.
SODIMM 2GB PC2100 DDR 266 512 MB LAPTOP 200pin MEMORY notice the only thing that changed was the amount from 512 mb to 2 gb. Most memory cards can be removed without any problem...refer to your owners manual as to where the ram is located Please take time to rate me

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.

    Jeff, some of the system's ram memory is being borrowed. If you are using Integrated Graphics, this is where it is going.

    [Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
    On the motherBoard.

    The GPU is soldered to the motherboard. (Hence you plug the monitor cable into the motherboard, via a VGA connector,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector )

    A dedicated graphics (adapter) card has it's own GPU.
    (Graphics Processing Unit,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

    Integrated Graphics uses some of the system's resources. The Processor, and Ram Memory.

    A dedicated graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
    (GPU, and graphics ram memory)


    PC2100 is DDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 266MHz.

    PC2700 is DDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 333MHz.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM

    [Frequency Rate:
    Proper 'computer speak' for Speed.
    'Speed' is slang.

    DDR Sdram:
    Double Data Rate Sdram
    Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory

    MHz.
    MegaHertz
    Mega = Approximately 1 Million
    Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

    PC2100 can operate Up To a frequency rate of 266 Million Cycles per Second.
    PC2700 - 333 Million Cycles per Second ]

    No, using PC2100 is going backwards, and will not help increase the Amount of ram memory, seen by the computer.

    According to eMachines Support, the T2642 desktop computer's motherboard, uses an Intel 845GV motherboard chipset.

    http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T2642

    [Chipset, and Chip are slang terms for I.C.
    Integrated Circuit.

    The motherboard chipset used for the technology of the T2642 motherboard, is the Northbridge, and Southbridge chipset.

    (Motherboard's for the Intel Core i3, i5, and i7, do not use this motherboard chipset technology)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

    (CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.
    Memory Slots = Ram Memory slots ]

    The Northbridge chip handles the faster processes of the computer.
    The Processor, Ram Memory, and high speed graphics.

    High speed graphics being AGP, or PCI Express.
    Not a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot.

    Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, is a slower process of the computer.

    Slower processes of the computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

    Northbridge (computing)

    (At the end of the Northbridge article's first sentence, you will see - southbridge, in blue.

    Memory: Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. You may purchase here.
    This will give you the biggest speed increase.

    CPU: I could not find specs for which cpus this motherboard supports. However, I had one of these same machines and succesffuly swapped out the celeron processor for a pentium 4 processor, 2.53 GHz. You should be safe finding a used processor on ebay that's a Pentium 4 2.2 GHz and it should work for you.

    Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
