(Redirected) Upgrading Dell Vostro 200

Jump to solution

Hello, i am new to this as well as burly getting into computer software and hardware. 

Recently i bought a Dell Vostro  200 mini tower from Craigslist. Its running on Windows 7 ultimate. these are its specs:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU e2140 at 1.60ghz

2.00 gb ram

64bit operating system

has 80gig hard disk memory and i installed a 250gig memory to it

has a Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chip set Family graphic card

i need advice, recently me and couple of my friends are planning on doing some video projects for you tube. I've tried downloading some applications but they wouldn't work.. i wish to use this Desktop for video editing and as causal gaming such as emulators!

Do i need a new graphic Card and whats good? What kind of Ram do i need?

 looking for good performance with a economical budget

Thank You so much for taking time to read this and helping out!

Small typo there, moved to the Desktop board. For memory and SSD upgrades look to Crucial.

I would advise installation of one of the BX100 SSDs to use as a boot drive and a temporary workspace for video editing. You can get 2 of the 4 GB kits listed to beef the system up to 8 GB of RAM.

For the video card I'll let others advise.
