Upgrade Options

By AtlBo ·
I have a Dell Optima 260 with 384 MB DDR RAM memory, a standard 20 GB IDE Hard Disk, a PCI Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV 64 MB Graphics Controller, and the motherboard is the standard Dell Computer Corporation board for the 260. I want to upgrade the performance to bring the machine up to current standards and have $350 to spend. What are my best options in this price range? Thanks in advance for all help...

Agree with New System

by TheChas In reply to Upgrade Options

I fully agree that you can get a new system with your $350 that will be better than what you could upgrade your existing system to.

If you go with a new system, spend the extra money to get Vista Home Premium. And, consider increasing the RAM to 2GB.

Note what CPU options there are, and buy a faster CPU when you have the funds. Same for the graphics IF you need more power.
