So my parents desktop is aging faster than they are, which is surprising. Here's what they have right now: Intel 775 E8200 Quad core cpu 2 GB of ddr2 800MHz ram Asus P45 mATX mainboard(mid-low level) 320 GB Blue WD HDD 500W ATX PSU DVD/CD burner 15" 1280x768 LCD 10 year old Keyboard and mouse(still PS2) even older set of speakers that randomly cracks and looks disgusting Old school Wireless G WiFi router and worst of all.... Vista... I've suggested they let me freshen up their computer with a few upgrades, but after running the numbers I'm thinking a completely new system might be a better option. My upgrade suggestions: 120 GB SSD and keep the 320GB for storage. They dont really use that much HDD space. $100 GeForce 610 w/HDMI $40 Asus 20" 1080p monitor with integrated speakers, plus an HDMI cord $140 A fresh copy of Window 7 Home Premium $99 and a new wireless Keyboard and mouse $40 I'll gift them my old DLink Wireless N router and an HDMI cable $0 This totals up to be around $420 from Newegg. At that price, should I just scrap the PC and suggest a new build? I built this for them about 3 years ago and tried to keep it under $600 at the time. They both have laptops now which are about a year old, but still not very fast. So I'm torn between upgrading a dinosaur and buying another low end system.
