I forgot to say that I would be willing to change the tower if it someone thinks its possible. I do need a better cooling tower with a bigger supply. My question is though how hard is it to change towers and which tower would my motherboard and other things fit into.
First of all I would like to apologize if mu questions seem silly. I have been into computers for a long time, but now that winter break is coming and I have some time to play games, I am ready to upgrade my computer. I just bought a 24inch monitor and would like a video card that would make it look pretty. First of all, this is the computer that I have - Sony vaio VGC-RB30, with following specs listed on this website: http://www.superwarehouse.com/Sony_VAIO_RB30C/VGC-RB30/ps/471790
I did upgrade my memory, I have 1.5 gigs. I also have a geforce pci card in there but its kind of old (512mb, i believe its 6800). I was looking to upgrade it to either GeForce 8800 GTX, Radeon 4850 or GeForce 9800 GTX. I do not know if my power supply would allow for those and if it does not, what are my options. Also, with my previous radeon card, I had problem of overheating. I think my tower does not have good cooling system. I did install two extra fans, but one went dead so when I play I have to place an outside (big home fan) by the computer. I would also like to purchase a video card that I could transfer to a new computer when I have money to buy it. For right now though I just want an upgrade. Please, let me know what I should do!
