Dell Dimension 8300
Microsoft windows XP, Home edition Version 2002, service pack 2
Intel Pentium 4 2.80 GHz
2.79 GHz, 768MB of RAM
Creative Soundblaster Live!
NVIDA GeForce FX 5200
JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166
Sony CD-RW CRX216E
WDC WD400BB-75DEA0 (Im guessing this is my hard drive, its under disk drives in my device manager, 40G)
Not sure if there is anything I missed. Fist off, I know the RAM DEFINITELY needs to be one of the first things I upgrade. this comp for some reason only came with 128 if i remember correctly and I just stuck some in there a while ago. what I would like to do is completely wipe everything and was thinking of getting a new computer but wasnt sure if it would be cheaper to upgrade this one. cant find my xp CD that came with the computer so thats whats been holding me from actually doing anything, but I have all the other CD's. as far as what I use it for, I play online games alot, and simulation games that usually require some decent graphics.
It works, for the most part, fine when Im playing online but its a bunch of little stuff that just bugs me and I know its long overdue to do something with this machine
