It's a poor choice for someone that wants to upgrade. The initial CPU is a value item, I wonder what the video is as well.
Most likely just fine for internet, DVD play, sound and more but upgraders and gamers should not look at such a box.
-> What many run into on these is not only the CPU needs replacing but the POWER SUPPLY since it was sized for the machine's value postition.
Win XP service pack 2
Compaq Presario SR1300NX
Processor: AMD Sempron 2000 MHz
RAM - 512 MB (2x256 DDR-SDRAM)
60 GB Hard Drive
Lots of new computers are coming up with 1 GB RAM; do I need to upgrade mine to keep it current for the next few years?
Secondly, I need to know if I need to upgrade my processor. I don't know how to do it, like does it have an obvious place inside the computer?
Third, I want to add another internal hard drive, of at least 300 GB.
What is the best hard drive for me to get? We do have an expansion slot for extra hard drive memory.
I would think if I do these three things, I should be set for a bit.
Any and all help is appreciated.
