You pros out there that have experience in upgrading I desperately need your advice.
My system - Pen 4, 2.66 ghz. 1gig ram. 80 gig hd.
I just called the techs that put this thing together and inquired about updating.
Here's what we discussed for upgrade;
Ram from 1 to 2 gigs. Installing two 2700 512's at $99.69 each = $200.
New dual video card = $150
Second 17" flat Monitor = $140
Total = $490
Another option discussed was upping the CPU speed from 2.66 to 2.80 = $250
Total around = $740
Seems steep considering and I haven’t included a new M-Audio sound card!. The ram seems to be outrageous or is that about right?
Any serious advice is going to be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
How about from the Internet all together?
I just talked to them again about the issue of unwanted applications or whatever running in the background. They said they would check it out. They also couldn't understand why I needed a different sound card. Not different I said, just professional and better suited to my needs.
