Hi, First question on this forum.. I have an old pc, that I want to upgrade to play the latest games and 1080p videos.


Sony Vaio VGS-V2S

Pentium 4

Windows XP (thinking about upgrading to Windows 8.1)

Nvidia Geforce 128mb


What should I do, I don't have the money to buy a new one, but I can upgrade this pc and depending on the money I have.?

What should I upgrade first, and it's estimated cost?

If i were you, i would rather save up for a new rig than upgrading this one.

If I am helping you but failed to reply within 24 hours, send me a PM.

I'm not even a gamer, but I agree.  Games are devised for newer systems and to expect to be able to play "the latest games" on an older system...well, that's expecting a lot unjustifiably, IMO.  Even if you were able to retrofit an older system to do so...the monies spent would probably exceed the cost of a newer system, IMO.

Not to mention if it is the model number Elfbane thinks it is, then it is a 2004 All In One (monitor and PC in one) which to all intents and purposes is not upgradeable.
