Ok. I purchased my desktop about 1 1/2 yrs ago. The main reason was that I needed a new desktop and something cheap for the time being. I have a Compaq Presario SR1010NX. Below are the Specs in case you don’t know which one this is:
Intel Celeron 2.8 GHz
400 MHz Front side bus
256 MB (1 x 256)
1 GB (2 x 512 MB) requires the replacement of the installed 256MB DIMM
PC2700 MB/sec (messages at PC2100
184 pin, DDR1-333 SDRAM
40 GB Ultra DMA
48x24x48 maximum speed
Integrated graphics with up to 64 MB shared video memory
Integrated AC97 audio
Six speaker configurable
I have a USB 2.0 DVD burner (DL) and I’ve added 512 in memory. According to the mfg the max memory is 1g. But, if I use the config on PNY (and a few other mfgs) website, it indicates that the max is 2g using 2 - 1g. I’ve just become interested in video editing. Nothing to extreme yet, just Tivo programs transfered and home videos. I’m wondering if replacing the 256 memory with a 512 to bring it up to 1g would make much of a difference. I’m not sure that replacing both with 1g to make 2g would work or make a noticable different. I am planning on upgrading to a much better PC. But, for the time being, I’d like to make upgrades if they will make a difference and be cost effective.
I’m also thinking that I might add an internalt DVD burner and possibly another HD. The HD might be external though.
What do you think?
