|My uncle sent me a Dell Dimension B110 Desktop and I know all along that its a crappy machine. Not only its a typical home machine, it has terrible onboard graphics, basic celeron processor, etc.|
Now, based on what I have, the processor is a Celeron D 2.53 GHz, 512 MB PC 3200 of RAM, Onboard Intel Graphics, 160 GB Hard Drive, Single DVD-RW Burner, No Floppy. I am planning to replace a 2001 computer, a Dell Dimension 8100, which is only a Pentium 4 1.5 GHz.
In the Dell Dimension B110, put an Nvidia GeForce 5200 PCI Video Card, a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum Pro Sound Card without the external box and swapped out the crappy Celeron with an Intel Pentium 4 3.00 GHz Processor (With Hyper-Threading Technology) in it.
Now, I can't seem to disable the onboard graphics card for some reason, I looked up on the internet and people said that its not possible. In fact some people are saying they are 8 MB of Memory Down, which gives them only 504 MB instead of 512. I get the full 512 MB :P However the processor says 2.99 instead of 3.00 GHz. I installed Windows XP Professional, I just disabled the Intel Video Card in the Device manager. Everything is well except the speed.
Now, for some reason, I find the PC quite laggy. I personally think its the onboard video card and the 2.99 processor speed. I have an HP Pavilion a150n Desktop computer which has only an Intel Pentium 4 2.6 GHz, but has 1.00 GB of PC 2700 RAM, Delta 1010LT (For Music Recording) and a Geforce 440 AGP 64 MB Graphics Card and that computer is very fast.
How come the Dell is much slower? What should I do to increase the speed of it?
