Question by Joseph H: Was upgrading my computer hardware worth it?
After 5 years, looking at the products in the market, I’ve finally decided to upgrade the hardware of this old hunk-a-junk. Here are the hardware specs before the upgrade:

Processor: Intel Pentium 4, 2.0Ghz
Memory: Two ddr1 chips – 256mb, 1gb
Hard Drive: 40Gb
ASUS P4V533-MX Motherboard
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200, 128mb 64bit

After I brought it to the shop and upgraded it for around $ 200 translated at the current forex rate, here’s the specs, with everything else other than the following remaining the same:

Processor: Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200, 2.5Ghz
Memory: one chip, DDR2 1GB
ASUS P5NSLI Motherboard
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT, 512mb ddr2 128bit

I was on a tight budget, ergo the $ 200 price.

To add, I use the computer for gaming and school-related work. I thought of upgrading it because I found it very slow.

  • your video card is…

    IMO it was worth it.

    On a side note your old computer is EXACTLY the same specs as the one I am using right now except I have more RAM.

  • You don’t say what you use your computer for. If you just use it to browse the web and e-mail and watch a video online here and there, the video card is overkill and you probably could’ve stayed with the old one.

    No. You could have better spent that money on US stocks. GM is under $ 5, pays a dividend and will no doubt quadruple in 3 years.
    Your PC will be obsolete in 1 yr.
    Of course, it would depend on what video editing you need the PC for…. if it’s for your home business, you still fall behind today’s tech. If for email, you did a nice job – and helped out the global economy; i.e, China

  • One thing for sure is :

    THAT’S DAMN WORTH IT !! You usually get what you pay for, but this is a fantastic bargain !! You’re real good at it, bro. You have got the best one, to the best of my knowledge.

    Adios !!

  • For me it should be worth it

  • You stole them parts for 200 bucks.
    Good job!

    You just wasted $ 200

    You could have bought a new computer with 5 times the power for 200 more. What you have now will not last another few months. Basic what was obsolete is still obsolete. It’s pays to ask first.
    Oh well,

  • Yes. Nice specifications! All games should be clear for you!

  • yes it was worth it. your old computer was trash for a lack of better and nicer words. the one you have is decent although buying another stick of ram wouldn’t hurt.

    Hello there! Thank you for this helpful video. By the way, I notice a lot of people keep on talking about Mobofelax Forex System (just google it), but I’m not sure if it is really good. Have you tried Mobofelax Forex System? I’ve heard some unbelivable things about it and my work buddy earn a lot of money with it, but he refuses to tell me: (

  • Guys, making some BIG Cash in the foreign exchange does not have to be difficult (I used to think it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Look for a forex system called Mobofelax Forex System (search on google). Seriously, I have earned a ton of money with it. I probably shouldn’t even be talking about it because I do not want a bunch of other folks out there running the same “game” but whatever, I am just in a great mood today so I’ll share the wealth haha.

    I’ve got it sorted now, averaging 400-500 pips a week easily. It’s all about the right system. I’ve tried them all, narrowed it down to one extremely powerful technique, check out the video here >>

  • Hey there, have you heard about “Forex ReturnMAX” (just do a Google search for it…)? There you can watch a great free video. It made it possible for Mike to double the profit in his investing account in under 3 month very easily. It might help you out as well.

  • Hihi, have you heard of the Thaintorm Forex System? (look for it on google). My dad says it helps people gain tons of pips.

    Hey! Have you tried the British Box Breakout (just google it)? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my work buddy got a ton of money.

  • 7.) Wenn jemand ein echtes System fürs Trading hat, sagt oder verkauft er es NIEMANDEN… gescheige denn postet es auf Youtube…

  • Überschrift “Forex Trading System”… Inhalt: bissal MACD mit Unterstützungs-/Widerstandslinien… in den letzten 9 Monaten 3 Videos…
    MEINE Analyse:
    1.) Anfänger
    2.) Einfacher trade
    3.) Glück
    4.) Niemand geht auf deine Seite weil du 3 Videos reingestellt hast
    5.) Niemand gibt Geld aus für Tipps die im “Trading für Dummies” Buch stehen
    6.) Der Fakt, dass du seit 9 Monaten nichts gepostet hast beweist, dass du entweder dein Konto gegen die Wand gefahren hast oder ein Abzocker bist…

  • die tageschart ansicht ist auch besonders spannend grade beim day trading , lol
