    Default New Computer Upgrades

    So I recently got a new computer for my 11th birthday and it's pretty good so far. I was talking to my Dad about upgrading it already with a new graphics card I hope I am able to win in the Ultimate giveaway contest. He said that my room is to hot for a big graphics card and it would probably over heat my computer, so how can I tell if he is right?

    Look in here for Core Temp or some other temp monitoring software it should do the trick let us know what your temps are so we can see how hot your running.

    If you have a prebuilt it is not as easy to upgrade video card. You probably need a new power supply.

    What Frequency is your machine running at, what chip is in the machine core temp should tell you that as well. I see your running a Dell machine so you won't be able to overclock it find out what your PSU is and report back. Your doing good so far keep it up.

    Hi Alex, take a look at the back or side of the Dell and let us know what the service tag number is. Then we can tell you what you can add or what you can't add. Enjoy your new computer.
