I picked this stuff, cause it wasnt to expensive, and i dont have much money for an upgrade
Also I have to find out if my motherboard can support this stuff. So do i have to open my case to find out what my motherboard is, or can i find out through windows ?? And then check the manufacturers website to see if it supports this stuff ?? I am a moron on this stuff.
So the things like the memory may have to change if my mobo doesnt support it, this is just what i was thinking about cause total this comes to about 330.00 which is in my price range.
But if anybody has any suggestions or a nice upgrade for cheaper or around the same price. I am all ears.
thanks for any help, sorry for the long post.
