First step is to post what you have now, then we take it from there..Are you running XP ?? Do you have a puter Model number,, a Dell, eMachine, HP ??klg said:I am wanting to upgrade my computer, how do I know what I have and what I can upgrade on it?
if you have an 8x agp slot that will help a lot, there are many decent gfx cards out there for agp still, a very good one would be nvidia 6600GT about $125 to $175, if you want a cheaper on let us know. You will no doubt need ram very badly 256 is nothing if youre talking about games, however because you have two slots, you will have to think about whether you keep your current 256 and add to it or just get 2 512 sticks, it would be nice to end up with a gig of ram total, of course it would be PC3200 DDR400klg said:Crucial.com shows i have MSI (micro star) model MS-7061 (KM4AM-V), AMD Sempron 2800+, 1999MHz, Front side bus speed 167 MHz, 256 MB non parity DDR PC3200, max capacity of 2048 MB memory, total memory slots 2, 1 available,

I am just wanting to upgrade so my kids can use some of their games. I know, for gaming we need a better computer but this is what we have for now and I want to do what i can with it, for a while at least.
