Question

Hi there I have a PC question, my PC is ok, apart from the Processor can I change this and still keep everything else? I think I need to change the motherboard to make the computer super fast and powerful?? Will this effect anything else? Please advise. :)

You can change the CPU so long as the motherboard supports it with no other changes

 

Howver, looking at your specs tells me that with 704 MB of RAM, your graphics is onboard and 64 MB (RAM should be 768 MB).

 

I would suggest getting a dedicated graphics card and also increase RAM to 1 GB

 

Adding RAM will not require any s/w re-installation, and changing graphics will only mean driver installation - all other s/w will remain uinchanged

Thanks for that, if that is the case this should make my computer faster and smoother when i am using roxio etc.. :)

More memory always helps but for any video work it's the graphics that are critical - the low-end, onboard graphics controllers don't cut it (and looking at that 704 MB tells me that's what you have - 64 MB shared memory for an onboard graphics chipset

Thankyou for this, what do you suggest on the graphic size i should get? I basically use my computer for vide editing slideshows internet etc..

I'd go for 256 MB at least. For video work any mid-range card should do the job - basically go with what you can afford without having to find an oil well to fund it :)

Thankyou my frien if i purchase one of these, would this have a link for my camcorder leads that would conect to the graphic card so that i can capture my movies this way and put this on to my pc?

Probably not - they sometimes do have composite video in - but you could ask for one of those

 

The best way to capture using a digital camcorder would be using a firewire card - if you don't have one on the computer, they aren't very expensive (quite cheap actually)
