I recently fell without a computer and a Friends mother was so kind tot give me her old , not so fast working Acer aspire X x3470 (a compact Tower pc).
It is a not so loved desktop in think as there is not terrible much info about it on thé forum.
I would want to upgrade this pc a bit (low Cost)
To make it run Windows (or even dual boot a Linux distro) quiet easy and be abble to play thé occasional grand strategy game on steam.
I did purchase already thé Samsung Evo 870 SSD 500gb and Will buy 2 extra 4gb ram dimm modules (not yet Shure of exact speed)
I have opende up thé pc and there is not much space . Only one 3.5 HDD 1tb, a DVD reader
And a smalle graphics card.
Specs : AMD A6 (F1 A75 BUILD) 3620 QUAD CORE 2.1GHZ
AMD Radeon HD 8470 2Gb (low profile 35w)
4 slots with 2x 4gb DDR3 dimm .,.... (Max 16gb)
I am quiet a beginner in building and cleaning up computers. And first pc with AMD.
what woud be possible as upgrade for thé A6 chip and Radeon graphics card? woud thé same A8 and 10 work on this motherboard? Of even neWer ones?
What kind of stronger graphicscard 2GB wouLd work in this smalle slot ( as this one has no extra cooling or power. PCI 2.1 x16)
MANY THANKS FOR YOUR MUCH APPRICIATED ADVICE.
of more info of foto's needed please say so.
