The hard drive, DVD burner, and monitor are salvageable. For the rest I'd visit Tomshardware.com for a recommended configuration. You'll need a new case, power supply, motherboard, CPU, video card, and RAM. Be careful not to skimp on the power supply.
I've recently gotten interested in rebuilding a computer.. (For gaming....) I have an old PC, but want to rebuild since there is something wrong with the hard drive, or memory, I'm not sure which..
I've never built my own computer before, but love doing things like this.
What do I do?! Where is a good place too start? Can I reuse parts from my old computer? I absolutely loved the monitor.. I just don't know how to tweak the tower? (I'm so new to this I don't even know what to ask!)
Here is the info for my old computer:
Compaq Presario PC
Processor: AMD Athlon X2 4800 dual core processor
Memory: 3 GB
Hard Drive: 320 GB
Optical Drive: DVD/CD burner with LightScribe Technology
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Graphics
And then I just have a staples LCD monitor...
