Question about ASUS P5E-VM DO Core 2 Quad Socket 775 1333MHz PC2-8500 ATX Motherboard Retail ***Free Sh
I'm looking at buying a 2nd hand gaming PC for my 12 year old son, but am worried that it won't have the legs for the latest (and future release games over say the next 12 months,)
The PC spec is
Pentium 4 3.2GHz LGA775 64bit Processor
ASUS P5L-VM 1394 mother board with IEEE 1394a (fireware), 6 x USB, Intel GMA 950 graphics, up to 4GB DDR2 RAM
Sapphire ATI X1600Pro PCI-E video card with 256MB RAM. VGA TV-OUT and DVI ports
250GB Seagate BARRACUDA 7200RPM SATA HDD
Transcend 2GB (2 x 1024MB chips) DDR2 677Mhz PC2-5300 RAM with Life Warranty
I suppose my question is ( as it looks a quick machine is will it play games that ask foe Dual core......)
2ndly would this mother board support future upgrades to Intel dual or Quadcore and Nvidia Geforce 8000 technology. If it does It may be worth taking a punt on it ?
Sorry to be no clearer than that I'm simply not technical enough.....
Any ideas or advise would be gratefully recieved
Thanks in advance
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.
