    Default COMPdoctor i need help. I WANT TO UPGRADE my PC


    i need to upgrade my pc

    Guys wish u could help me.

    ... I utilize two hard disk but then i'm using only 1 fan in the CPU since i utilize the other power cord (or watever u called /it is
    called
    ) that is supposedly for the cpu. Will it affect the system of my computer

    ... I have 2 RAM (1 gig and 256 PQI) and a 128 mb VIdeo card(nvidia geforce FX5200), will it be compatible if i upgrade my motherboard
    (Asus p4s533-mx) since my motherboard is already old, i bought it 6-7 yrs ago.

    ... I wish to upgrade my intel pentium 4 1.6 ghz to an Intel Dual core or core duo. will it be compatible or do i need a new power
    supply

    ... What do u think is the best for my PC i'm really experiencing slowdown when i run Adobe Photoshop CS2 and play music as well as
    during virus scan.

    ...Right now i also experience when i turn on my PC it would run but then suddenly shuts off... is this due to power supply or too much
    heat in my computer since i remove the other fan in my CPU

    CompDoctor help me very quick ^_^
    Anyway Thanks in advance
    i'm a newbie in this site ^_^

    I utilize two hard disk but then i'm using only 1 fan in the CPU since i utilize the other power cord (or watever u called /it is called) that is supposedly for the cpu.

    pls consider system/chassis ventilation, no intake or exhaust fan?

    What do u think is the best for my PC i'm really experiencing slowdown when i run Adobe Photoshop CS2 and play music as well as during virus scan.

    thats is normal w/ your rig even if you're using a C2D proc, you will still encounter that problem.

    I have 2 RAM (1 gig and 256 PQI) and a 128 mb VIdeo card(nvidia geforce FX5200), will it be compatible if i upgrade my motherboard (Asus p4s533-mx)

    yes
    I wish to upgrade my intel pentium 4 1.6 ghz to an Intel Dual core or core duo. will it be compatible or do i need a new power supply

    you need to change ram, mobo, cpu and graphics card if your planning to change your setup unless, socket 775 imong P4.

    Right now i also experience when i turn on my PC it would run but then suddenly shuts off... is this due to power supply or too much heat in my computer since i remove the other fan in my CPU

    pls check the temp of ur CPU, or the connection inside your computer. then your powersupply

    btw, specs of your pC?

    rough estimate nako sa imo cpu is P8000 add nalang ka gamay for an upgrade

    better sell your whole CPU nalang (case, motherboard, processor, ram, video card, etc...)
    surely it's not compatible for a dual core upgrade since that is still socket 478.

    socket 775 naman ron for intel, socket 940 for AMD

    peace bro!

    if you upgrade that rig, the things you can still use are optical drives, harddisk and the casing. you need to buy a new powersupply, mobo, proc, and memory.
