Hi folks,
I have a elitegroup nforce4-a939 with 1Gig of ram and a AMD athlon 64 3500+ chip.
I have a ATI Sapphire1950 graphics card, dvd writer, SoundBlaster X Fi Platinum Champian sound card + add on drive in front bay.
Cooler master black and silver case. Samsumg 20.1 syncmaster 203B monitor....
Like to surf, download, play occational game and watch movies...
Oh... and a 80 gig main drive and a 160 gig drive for storage...

Can you suggest any options on how to upgrade

Thanks for any advice..................

Don't the AMD Quad cores need a AM2 motherboard rather than a S939? If so, OP would be looking at £200 or so for processor and motherboard.

Cheapest improvement would probably be to put another gig or two of memory in - around £20 or so? If he wants to spend more then a new graphics card would probably be the best investment. :)

just checked and I have 2 pc3200u 512mb ddr sticks in 2 slots.
I have two purple slots left, what can I upgrade with any suggestions..

Can anyone sell me any memory that will work on my board..
Just seen the ad for play.com memory but that is for laptops.

Thanks

You could buy another 2 sticks of 1GB PC3200 memory. However, your motherboard takes DDR memory which is a lot more expensive than DDR2. 2*1GB from [url]www.crucial.com[/url] would cost you £46. You can get cheaper memory but it's often a false economy. :whistling:

To be honest, if you are only running XP then 1GB is enough and it would be unlikely that you would notice any substantial difference in performance. The set-up you've got looks OK so, unless you're going to spend several hundred pounds, in which case you'd buy a new system, I'd find something else to spend your money on! :thumbsup:
