Marcin541 Posted January 4, 2007 CID Report Share Posted January 4, 2007 Okay, I've got an old Dell computer back from 2000 or something, its specs are: Intel pentium 3 866 mhz 256 mb ram (133 mhz i believe) 10 gb 5200 rpm hard drive (had 20 gb 7.2k , but broken ) 4 MB integrated video card (yes, Its antique!!) My question is, what out of the above is making the PC so slow? What I mean is my friend's desktop doesn't have specs that are so much "better" than mine, the only big difference is the processor his specs are: Intel p4 1.8 ghz 256MB RDRAM (o.O) 30 gb 7.2k rpm hd 32mb integrated intel graphics card Now, the performance difference of these 2 pc's is extremely different. I'm not talking about playing games or anything, but basic things such as browsing the internet, or viewing movies. I can say that my PC is about 3 times slower than his. I was thinking of upgrading mine to make it close to the standard pc's today, but Im not sure which part to upgrade. The only difference I see is the processor but can that be making it so slow? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
