I just got an old desktop, and it looks like there are sth missing, and I want to make it run again. It seems that the RAM, graphic card and network card or sound card are missing, but I am not sure. Is there any advise what kind of hardware should I buy, I appreciate all the help:)
Ram must be low density and its not worth fixing unless said ram is free.
AGP video cards are old and slow and dont meet minimum standards today for a useable system.
Oldest viable machine from this era is Optiplex GX620 tower with pentium D 915 cpu. The GX620 can run windows 10 with PCI-E video card like a GT1030.
GX270 model WILL NOT RUN Windows 8 or 10.
It will run Linux without issue.
