Although this is a Pentium 4, it only has 6 GB of HD space and has a crappy graphics card. Moreover, because of the box's small size, I can't easily upgrade it. This is the worst acquisition my father has ever made (I think he even got it for free) since I can't play any of the most "modern" games like KOTOR that have high requirements.

 

Enjoy the pics and laugh as much as you like!

 

Cheers.

You have more processing power than I, don't moan.

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

So let us go and embrace the rustling smells of unseen worlds

Yes there are external hard drives.

Sorry but my AMDs rock your world, the power of GHZ is at the palm of my hands. I don't like P4.

 

P.S. I don't mean to offend your pc. I know people who still use Win 95 and have 200 Mhz CPU... :lol:

It looks like you really just need more RAM to dramatically improve performance, although those cases make it hard to upgrade.

 

Edit: You can buy a cheap external hard drive as well.

What are you looking to spend Krookie?

You know your computer's crap if it's a flatbed. :D

To the Original Poster: Your processor is really quite decent. Your RAM is *****way***** too less. 256MB just doesn't cut it for Windows XP. Even the primary OS functionalities do not fit into 256MB. Your entire experience is likely to be a huge swap-fest. And if you have stuff like Antiviruses and Messengers running in the background, it's even worse.

 

You will be shocked at how much better your system performs simply if you upgrade your memory to 512MB, and disable all the worthless background junk like messengers, quicktime, Winamp agent, etc. Of course, in order to run a 3D game well you will need a 3D card, but if you are feeling that your overall desktop experience is torturous, increasing your RAM will go an incredibly long way in soothing the pain. And your total investment is probably going to be around $20, even if you have to toss out your old RAM sticks.

P4s are old, even those with HT.

 

They heat up a lot and take up WAY too much power than they should.

 

Athlon 64s or eve X2s generally take up less wattage from your PSU than p4s, and they perform better than P4s.

 

P4s usually take up anywhere from 85-130 W. The new Core 2 Duo/Conroes will likely be pulling in excess of 150 W, just for comparison. A low-wattage P4 is equivalent in power consumption to a medium or high-wattage AMD Athlon 64/X2.

 

What about graphics?

 

Take a screenshot of this with printscreen:

 

control panel --> display --> settings --> advanced --> adapter

 

Then press PrntScrn (upper right between scroll lock and F12), paste into paint, upload to your photobucket. ;)

 

If it sucks beyond belief, it will probably say "Intel ____"

 

Intel graphics, ahaha.

 

I remember the days when my comp was crap. Then I got a job. ><
