Hello fellow HUKD members,
I plan on upgrading the family desktop due to it being way overdue (coming to be 10 years old and surprisingly still running) - it is a Dell Dimension 8200 which currently has the following currently installed which I intend to upgrade:
1.8GHz Intel P4 Processor
512MB RDRAM (2x256MB Samsung Sticks)
nVidia GeForce 2 Ti200 64MB
Dell Stock 250W PSU
I have been reading and looking around online for components and was wondering if anyone could give a second opinion to the parts I've found so far. This is in regards to various concerns such as whether it is compatible to be installed and whether they are of a reasonable price (therefore whether I should consider looking elsewhere).
Here are the parts which I have found:
£19.41: Intel P4 2.4GHz Northwood 478 Socket 400Mhz FSB
£17.99: 512MB RDRAM (2x256MB sticks)
£38.50: PNY GeForce 6200 512MB AGP 4x/8x
£33.73: 400W PSU (Bought from abroad - hope to find a local and cheaper alternative tomorrow)
I have mainly used this to check for compatibility as well as reading around other people's accounts of upgrading their Dell Dimension 8200:http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8200/specs.htm
Unfortunately the option of simply buying a new desktop PC is not possible.
Thank you for reading and any feedback provided;
I look forward to hear everyone's responses.
