Hey there, I was wanting to upgrade my comp, and I need some help. My current rig is a standard e520 Dell with a 8600GTS card. I'm not sure about the Motherboard, RAM, Hard Drive, and DVD drive specifications, but I assume they're very crappy as they are stock Dell. My computer sports a Core 2 Duo E4300 1.80ghz processor. Anyway, the parts that I want to change are: The Mobo The Ram The Case The PSU and the Heatsink
What I'm keeping: DVD Drive Hard Drive Processor Video Card Sound Card
I have around a 500$ (canadian) budget. Can you please recommend me something, I'm quite the noob.
Are Dell motherboards particularly hard to install into new cases? I would go to a computer store, but here in Ottawa there aren't many specialized computer stores. The two that my family went to closed down about a year ago :(.
