Hi, I just bought a Dell Vostro from someone who had used it for a little bit. Its in great condition but the ram, GPU, and CPU along with the battery are kinda old. Im looking for something that will help me play more intense games smoothly. I'd like them to be budget friendly but if not I dont mind spending money on this pc, hopefully it isnt a bust. Thanks! Heres the specs btw
intel i3 530 2.93 GHZ
nVidia GeForce 310
4 GBs of DDR3
You can add more memory to the system. Below is the memory configuration for your computer. You can also add another video card. Below are some other video cards that were an option that you can look into getting.
|Type||DDR3 SDRAM (non–ECC memory only)|
|Memory capacities||1 GB, 2 GB and 4GB|
|Maximum memory||16 GB|
|Type||PCI-E x16 graphics card|
ATI HD4350 - 512MB DDR2 (For system shipped with P55 Chipset only)
NVIDIA GT220 - 1024MB DDR3
NVIDIA GTS240 - 1024MB DDR3
NVIDIA G310 - 512MB DDR3
The Vostro 430 uses DDR3 SDRAM Technology. DDR3 SDRAM is a random access memory interface technology used for high bandwidth storage of the working data of a computer or other digital electronic devices.
Is there any other graphic cards with more power i could add? Or another PSU? Thanks for the ram ideas though, and could the i5 or i7 work for my pc?
Best CPU is a Core i7 880.
Better GPU could be a GTX 1050ti.
Max RAM is 16gb of DDR3.
You could upgrade the PSU with just about any ATX PSU but is not needed unless you go for a graphics card above 75w.
I do not work for dell. I am also a user.
1050 TI cards are wicked expensive right now. Cards that should be $140 are $250.
With your current Ram a GTX 1030 would be the best bang for the buck.
