I need to upgrade this PC for better performance. Can you tell me What all changes can be made?
1). Can i use M2000 graphics card? Is it sufficient to perform well? What should be taken care while purchasing RAM?
2). Which memory module should I purchase? Which frequency of DDR3? ECC/Non ECC? What should be taken care while purchasing RAM?
3) I believe putting an SSD for OS and Applications will improve the loading time.
4). What all other configuration changes can be done?
5) Is upgrading this or purchasing a brand new is good? Branded or Custom build?
6) Can some body give mid-range spec for above application? System is 24 X7 ON! office use
