After being PC-less at home for I can't even say how long I unearthed some ill-Gotten goods.. But they is so old and therefore I'm looking to do a bit of a refresh on em..
They are HP SFF computers.. 2 dc7700's and 2 dc7800's, they are all rocking on Windows XP SP3 with 1gb of RAM.
Specs on the dc7800 are as follows:(copied from BIOS)
Processor Type: Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 @2.33GHz
Process Speed: 2333/1333 <-- anyone know what that means?
Memory Size: 1024 MB DDR2/667 MHz/Dual Channel 512MB x2
Now here is my 2 questions..
1. Given my CPU, would I be better off with 32 bit O/S or a 64 Bit O/S?
i.e. 32bit win7 or 64bit Win7? (going to 4GB RAM)
2. Anyone know where else besides Amazon, Newegg, Tigerdirect, Ebay, where I can buy a Graphics card?
The card in mind is an HD 6450 2GB, HOWEVER it must be a Low Profile Card..
I cannot for the life of me find it.. Sapphire HD 6450
Anyways,.. Looking for input on some sites to buy Graphics cards as the top ones failed me..
Let me know!
P.S. Why do Low Profile brackets seem so hard to find? I figured it would be like a $0.50 item but NOo....
