Not much gain by adding more. I've been lucky and seen 4GB and more machines and there is little speed gain. But you didn't reveal where the speed loss was. Read this recent discussion -> http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6122_102-0.html?threadID=390775&tag=forums06;forum-threads
That change for them was all they needed to get their machine performance back.
The 64MB video card looks to be prime for an upgrade. Research if you can fit the low power GT240 or GT220 in there. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gt-240,2475.html
Hey, its going to be my birthday in 2 weeks, and I'm thinking of upgrading my HP Pavilion Slimline (s3200t). I want to upgrade it mainly cause its been slowing down recently for some odd reasons, so I mainly want to upgrade the RAM. But, as I thought, might as well upgrade some other things too. What do you guys think? Here are the specs:
OS - MS Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2
CPU - Intel Pentium E2140 @ 1.60GHz
RAM - 2.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 333MHz
Motherboard - ASUSTek Computer INC. LOCKTITE
Graphics - 64MB GeForce 7500 LE (MSI)
HD - 400GB Western Digital WDC WD4000AAJS-00TKA0 (IDE)
Is there anything else i should include?
I want to run windows 7 on it also. The most intensive things i do on my computer are play Sims 3 and a bunch of Adobe CS4 programs. And I want this under an acceptable budget.
Any and all opinions are welcome
Oh, and lastly, the slimline is a really cramped, small computer. IS it possible to get a bigger chassis?
