Mrs Technophobe 2009 here.
I'm seriously bone when it comes to things like PCs and graphics cards I'm afraid so I could really do with the guidance of those who are more IT literate than me as I (well my daughter!) would really like to update our current desktop with more RAM and a decent graphics card to play Sims 2 and eventually Sims 3.
I do not know even where to begin to do this so I hope one of you kind souls can spare 10 minutes to explain to me what is involved/cost etc.
We have a 3-year-old Dell Dimension 3100 DV051 desktop with Pentium 4 2.99GHz processor and 504MB of RAM. Is this 'old' desk top PC 'young' enough to take extra RAM and a decent graphics card to improve its performance?
If I haven't given you enough information can one of you please explain how I go about getting what extra you need via the control panel or elsewhere.
Thank you ever so much to anyone who is kind enough to reply.
Yours in desperation.
